Great views of Newcastle – #7

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…
