So, there we have it.
Hull fought valiantly this afternoon and had plenty of chances to beat Manchester United, but even if they had done so relegation would still have been a certainty by virtue of Newcastle's second victory in 12 matches.
Liverpool's scarcely believable 6-1 capitulation at Stoke means they finish sixth and will now have to enter the final qualifying round for next season's Europa League, while Tottenham end the campaign fifth and will grace the competition once more next season following their narrow win over Everton at Goodison Park.
Chelsea were behind early on at home to Sunderland but a penalty from Diego Costa and a well-taken brace from fellow substitute Loic Remy led them to finish a dominant season on a winning note.
Scenes of celebrations at Stamford Bridge as Jose Mourinho's side, who finish on 87 points, lift their first Premier League title since 2010 with the departing Didier Drogba taking centre stage during the festivities despite the Ivorian being carried from the field by his teammates in the first half.
Arsenal warmed up for next week's FA Cup final against Aston Villa with an impressive win over West Brom, while Frank Lampard bid farewell to the Premier League with Manchester City's opener in their victory over Southampton.
Stay tuned for more reaction to a fascinating final day on IBTimes UK, where we will have full details of Sam Allardyce's immediate departure from West Ham and more.

And that is likely to be all she wrote for Hull as Gutierrez beats Adrian from outside the box to put Newcastle 2-0 up with just minutes remaining.
What a moment for the popular 31-year-old, who was diagnosed with testicular cancer last year.
Goal: Newcastle 2-0 West Ham (Jonas Gutierrez)
McShane required treatment after that challenge and as a result this match is likely to finish a good few minutes later than the rest.
Newcastle have spurned a glorious chance to double their advantage and effectively guarantee survival.
Anita storms forward on the break with no defenders in sight but gets caught in two minds under pressure from Adrian who then stops a tame pass from reaching Cisse or Sissoko.
A potential twist in the tale as Fellaini, who had been on the pitch for less than 20 minutes, is shown a straight red for a dangerous, studs-up challenge on McShane.
Red card: Marouane Fellaini (Manchester United)
Champions Chelsea have fought back from a goal down against lowly Sunderland to lead after Vitor Mannone failed to keep out substitute Remy's shot following good work from Eden Hazard.
On a surreal afternoon for Liverpool, Gerrard caps his last appearance with a goal that owed much to Rickie Lambert's headed flick. An understandably muted celebration from the long-serving captain in the circumstances, however.
Yet another chance for Hull but Valdes makes a diving save low to his left to deny Jelavic. Bruce's men are giving this everything but they just cannot find a way past the excellent Spaniard.
Goal: Stoke 5-1 Liverpool (Steven Gerrard)
Goal: Chelsea 2-1 Sunderland (Loic Remy)
West Brom and QPR have each managed to grab consolation goals through McAuley and Austin, while Chamakh gives Palace the lead at home to Swansea before being replaced with what looks like a hamstring injury.
At Hull, N'Doye volleys wide following yet another fine run and cross from Ahmed Elmohamady.
Goal: Crystal Palace 1-0 Swansea (Marouane Chamakh)
Goal: Arsenal 4-1 West Brom (Gareth McAuley)

Deadlock broken at St James' Park and what a decisive goal that could be for Newcastle as they bid to beat the drop.
A swinging cross from Jonas Gutierrez is headed home in emphatic fashion by Sissoko and the ground erupts in relief.
The news spreads quickly at the KC Stadium, where throngs of supporters are keeping abreast of the action via their phones and radios.
Goal: Newcastle 1-0 West Ham (Moussa Sissoko)
Previously stricken Leicester have performed miracles to haul themselves to safety over recent weeks and they are on song once again today as a quickfire double from Argentine duo Ulloa and Cambiasso puts them 4-0 up at home to QPR.
If Chris Ramsey was still in any doubt whatsoever about the magnitude of the job facing him as permanent manager at Loftus Road, he will be under no illusions now.
Another great chance for Rivierie for Newcastle but he fails to make any contact with Daryl Janmaat's cross after the Dutch full-back had cut inside Aaron Cresswell.
Goal: Leicester 4-0 QPR (Esteban Cambiasso)
Goal: Leicester 3-0 QPR (Leonardo Ulloa)
A guilt-edge chance spurned by David Meyler at the KC Stadium and Chris Smalling's blushes are spared.
The second-half whistles sound and Hull now have 45 minutes left to avoid relegation while Rodgers will be desperate for some sort of reaction from his Liverpool squad following a humiliating opening.
