Welcome to Gateshead. Gateshead is located in Tyne and Wear and is the main settlement in the Metropolitan Borough of Gateshead. It lies on the southern bank of the River Tyne opposite Newcastle upon Tyne and together they form the urban core of Tyneside.
Gateshead town centre and Newcastle City Centre are joined by seven different bridges across the Tyne, including the landmark Gateshead Millennium Bridge. The town is becoming progressively better known for several examples of iconic architecture such as The Sage Gateshead, the Angel of the North and the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art.
Many residents of the Tyneside area class Gateshead as part of Newcastle upon Tyne. The larger towns that surround Gateshead are North Shields, Killingworth, East Brunton and Ryton. Limoagency.co.uk also supply limousine hire and car hire to these areas as well as the rest of the UK.
The Angel of the North is a contemporary sculpture designed by Antony Gormley, which is located in Gateshead. As the name suggests, it is a steel sculpture of an elegant angel, standing 20m tall, with wings measuring a tremendous 54m across.
The wings themselves are not planar, but are angled 3.5 degrees forward, which Gormley has said aims to create “a sense of embrace”. It stands on a hill, on the southern edge of Low Fell overlooking the A1 road and the A167 road into Tyneside limo and the East Coast Main Line rail route, and just south of the site of Team Colliery.
Work began on this fantastic project in 1994, the total cost coming to a whopping £1m. Most of the project funding was provided by the National Lottery. Due to its exposed location, the sculpture has been built to withstand winds of over 100 mph so to avoid any major accidents like the angel toppling over 600 tons of concrete were used to create foundations that anchor the sculpture to rock 20m below. Limoagency.co.uk can provide you with limo hire or car to see this beautiful sculpture and make it possible for you to get some super photographs.
