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


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


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


To turn a walk into a pilgrimage, at the beginning set your private ‘intention’ – dedicate your journey to something that you want help with, or for which you want to give thanks.

The British Pilgrimage Trust is working to make pilgrimage in the British landscape Open to All.
