Angel of the north
This angel, at 20 meters tall, is probably the largest angel in the world, the pride of England. Built in 1998, this statue is a symbol of the rich mining and shipbuilding industry. Its span is 54 meters and it weighs a whopping 208 tons.
This 1,000-year-old cathedral overlooks the town of Durham from its highest point. It is one of the most beautiful Norman cathedrals in the world and has therefore been given the World Heritage title.
