The Northern Saints Trails, based on ancient pilgrim routes, position the North East as the ‘Christian Crossroads of the British Isles’, and bring the fascinating stories of the region’s Saints to life.
The six routes reflect the saint’s journeys and their connections with the North East and also recognise the significance of Durham Cathedral as a destination for pilgrims for centuries.
With route options available for all ages and abilities, whether you are looking to take on a walking challenge, get back to nature, discover stunning landscapes, uncover fascinating history, enjoy family time in the great outdoors or focus on wellbeing, be guided by the Northern Saints as you take a step back in time.
