We’re missing the Olympics and so we thought we’d post this picture to remind us all of what a great summer it’s been for sport!
We also love the internet – being curious about bank holidays and looking forward to the weekend, we did a search… wikipedia told us all about it!
“A bank holiday is a public holiday in the United Kingdom or a colloquialism for public holiday in Ireland. There is no automatic right to time off on these days, although banks close and the majority of the population is granted time off work or extra pay for working on these days, depending on their contract. The first official bank holidays were the four days named in the Bank Holidays Act 1871, but today the term is colloquially (albeit incorrectly) used for public holidays which are not officially bank holidays, for example Good Friday and Christmas Day. Many large shops open on bank holidays, when most people have a day off for shopping, heavily advertising sales and bargains.”
Above all Bank Holidays MUST be fun, in this country we are so over the weather – we expect rain when we’re not at work and we don’t let it spoil the weekend… Here at Roomzzz
this goes double… we love a bit of bad weather… it means we can hunker down in our cosy rooms… any excuse not to leave! And why would we want to… perfect city centre hotel in Manchester
, luxurious accommodation in the centre of Leeds
and shortly a fabulous hotel in Newcastle
… we’d be mad to tackle the weather!
Newcastle United Football Club (NUFC) was founded in 1892, by the merger of Newcastle East End and Newcastle West End, and has played at its current home ground, St James’ Park, since, the ground has a capacity of 52,387. The club has been a member of the Premier League for all but two years of the competition’s history, and never dropped below the English football’s second tier, since joining the Football League in 1893.
They have won four League Championship titles and six FA Cups, as well as the 1969 Inter-Cities Fairs Cup and the 2006 UEFA Intertoto Cup. Newcastle United has the eighth highest total of major honours won by an English club.
They have a fierce local rivalry with Sunderland, and the two clubs have engaged in the Tyne–Wear derby since 1898. The club’s traditional kit colours are black and white striped shirts, black shorts and black socks. Their traditional crest takes elements of the city coat of arms which features two seahorses.
This is the exterior of the historic Friar House which will be home to our brand new hotel in Newcastle…
Check out that chandelier… what a glamourous welcome!
Imagine relaxing in here? A home from home still… but with a touch more luxury!
