We saw the AA signs advertised the Statue and today decided to go to the Harbour to see it, it is well worth the visit, you cannot miss it as its very tall.
Didn't know this was here until we saw her! Thought it was just a pregnant lady until we went around the other side which isn't pretty but does make you think.

It looks like something from Game of Thrones and is huge, standing over the harbour and car park. Neither of my two young children were particularly bothered by the slightly scarier side of the statue,... 更多
