The Northern Saints Trails

The North East has been a place of pilgrimage for centuries, and the Northern Saints Trails will continue to position the North East as the ‘Christian Crossroads of the British Isles’. The six new trails are based on historic pilgrim routes across the North East and will promote the region’s Christian heritage but also appeal to those of other faiths, and to those simply looking for relaxation, a walking challenge, or a chance to uncover the region’s fascinating history and landscapes. 

The six routes can be walked in their entirety, or in any direction and duration – the routes allow you to choose your own adventure. The Laing Art Gallery is situated on the The Angel's Way route (Seaton Sluice-Newcastle-Gateshead-Chester-le-Street.) 

Joining us along The Angel's Way? Don't forget to get your passport stamped - just ask at reception. The Northern Saints Passport allows visitors to collect stamps at attractions and places to eat and drink along the six Northern Saints routes. You can purchase your passport, and 55-page Northern Saints Trails Visitor Guide from The Northern Saints website.
