Northern Saints Business Engagement Events

Find out more and get involved with the ambitious Northern Saints Trails project

You are invited to one of the three regional Northern Saints engagement events to enable you to find out more about the project and how you can get involved.

The Northern Saints Project brings together a wide range of partners to develop the pilgrimage theme as a destination development and marketing initiative to attract visitors. Though based within the historical context of the region’s considerable Christian heritage, it will largely appeal to those of other faiths, no faith or those simply looking for their own personal spirituality, escapism and peace and tranquillity. The first phase will see the development of six new, regional walking trails which traverse the North East. Some visitors may wish to rise to the challenge of long-distance trails, but many will simply wish to dip in and out of shorter sections of the routes to visit attractions, enjoy landscapes or indulge in afternoon teas or visit a welcoming country pub.

The project has been widely endorsed and supported across the region by the North East Tourism Alliance, the North East Cultural Partnership, Destination Management Organisations, Local Authorities, Local Access Forums, regional Diocese and North East attractions.
