Pilgrimage (n.): A journey on foot to holy/wholesome/special places.

From two roots: ‘Per Ager’ (‘Through the field’) – and ‘Peregrinus’ (‘Stranger’).

Britain’s holy places are all connected by green lanes and public footpaths.


You can make pilgrimage anytime, along a Great Route or from your back door.


British pilgrimage is open to all, with or without religion. Bring your own beliefs.
