In InspireTrails

The Northern Saints Passport allows visitors to collect stamps at attractions and places to eat and drink along the six Northern Saints routes. It's a great way to create your very own personalised and unique Northern Saints souvenir. 

Across the region you'll find many venues who will stamp your passport as you visit, but this summer a number of venues will be offering FREE passports to pick up!

Each venue will have 200 Northern Saints Trails Passports to give away! And once they're gone, they're gone! So lace up those walking boots and get out there this summer to grab your free passport and see how many stamps you can collect this summer.
