Newcastle United Football Club

In previous incarnations they were Stanley and Newcastle East End, but they became the famous Newcastle United in 1892 when they took over at St James' Park from rivals Newcastle West End and a year later took their place in the Football League. Success has come in fits and starts to the Toon, who have a tidy haul of four English championships, six FA Cups and one Fairs Cup triumph. But the last of those came in in 1969 and it's been a long wait for silverware since. Fast Fact:Prior to 1904 Newcastle wore red and white stripes before changing to the now legendary black and white.

Angel of the North - Tyne and Wear

If you're travelling past Gateshead, whether by car on the A1, or by train on the East coast main line, you can't miss the Angel of the North. At 20 metres tall, with a 54 metre wingspan and weighing 200 tonnes, the Angel of the North is Britain's largest sculpture and towers over the Team Valley from its hilltop site. In 1994 Gateshead Council chose Turner prize-winning artist Antony Gormley OBE to produce a sculpture as a symbol for Tyneside. Funding was secured in 1996, and the Angel of the North was erected on site in 1998. The wings are not flat - but are angled 3.5 degrees forward, which Gormley says was to create "a sense of embrace". 150 tonnes of concrete were used to create foundations which anchor the sculpture to the rock 20 metres below.

Sunderland Football Club

It is totally enclosed and is the largest new football ground so far to be built in England. The stadium itself is truly magnificent and I would say that it is one of the best (if not the best) stadiums in England.It is composed of two three tiered stands (at one end and one side of the pitch), whilst the others are two tiered. Unfortunately, sitting at the back of the highest tiers means a limited view of the majority of the stadium, hence the feeling of being a bit cut off. The West Stand also has a row of executive boxes (which you can sit outside if you wish).There is a large electronic scoreboard at either end. You really have to experience not only the stadium but also the occasion that is Sunderland to believe it.


The University of Sunderland
