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.

Grey’s Monument is a Grade I listed monument built in 1838 in the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne. It was erected to Earl Grey for the passing of the Great Reform Act of 1832 and stands at the top of Grey Street.
A spiral staircase leads to a viewing platform at the top of the monument, which is occasionally opened to the public. Old photographs show that the monument was originally on a traffic island but these days the area around the monument is now pedestrianised and is home to many shops.
Our favourite FACT is that in 2007 the Monument hosted the first major Newcastle Flash mob event when over 500 people gathered around the landmark joined in a conga line.
And the final Grey’s Monument FACT is…. The Maxïmo Park song By the Monument refers to Grey’s Monument.
We are loving finding out all these FACTs and taking in the views… it won’t be long now before our very own hotel in Newcastle City Centre is up and running…
