How to take part
1. Get your National Parks passport
You can either print off a passport or collect a copy at one of our visitor centres. They are also available at Cotswold stores. You'll need to keep your passport safe and take it with you to get stamped every time you visit a National Park.
2. Visit some National Parks
Try a new activity, join a guided walk or event, sample some local food! Try to travel sustainably if you can and help us keep our National Parks as beautiful breathing spaces: buses, trains and boats can be part of the fun.
There are 15 National Parks in the UK. You can see where they are on this map:
3. Get your stamp at a visitor centre
All the visitor centres with stamps at each National Park are listed along with their opening times. Check the times before you visit, especially in the winter when many centres close on some days. Until March 31, if you send us the form inside the passport with your details on you will be in with a chance of winning some fabulous Merrell outdoor gear from the spring/summer 2012 range.

During your visit to a National Park, pick one visitor centre to visit, and ask the visitor centre staff to stamp your passport on the logo for that National Park and sign and date it as a record of your visit!
