The easiest route is to arrive on either the M57 or M58 motorways which both end at the same point, Switch Island. From here follow signs to 'All Docks' on the A5036, continue to follow the A5036 until you reach a roundabout under a flyover with signs to Crosby and the A565. Turn right at the roundabout following the signs to Crosby and A565. You will join up with the A565 but stay in the left hand lane. At the first set of traffic lights turn left into Cambridge Road, there is a brown tourist sign, 'Antony Gormley's Another Place' for the statues at this junction. Drive straight along this road at the end of which there are two car parks adjacent to the marine lake. The beach and statues are a 5 minute walk from the car park.
