The Newcastles Passport scheme promotes tourism and friendship between Newcastles around the world. Each Newcastle taking part has carefully selected a series of special offers just for visitors from other Newcastles. These could be a customised programme if the visitor has any special interests – places to visit or people to meet, or special discounts from local businesses.
Visitors sign up for a free ‘Passport’ through our website, then get in touch with the Newcastle they wish to visit. Each Newcastle is committed to offering a personalised touch, with a warm and friendly welcome to anyone living or from an affiliated Newcastle.
Exclusive offers include:
- Invite to a tea-making ceremony in Shinshiro, Japan
- Meet the Mayor of Neuburg, Germany
- Free chocolate gifts from Neuchâtel, Switzerland
- Guided Amish tours of New Castle, Pennsylvania
- Afternoon tea with members of the Elders Council in Newcastle upon Tyne, England
- Free entry into Rabati castle in Akhaltsikhe, Georgia
- Become a real medieval hero in a romantic seventh century-old castle in Jaunpils, Latvia
- Get a VIP trip around a gothic church and local landmark in Nyborg, Denmark
