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 Great Route or from your back door.

British pilgrimage is Open to All, please ‘Bring Your Own Beliefs’- it’s not religious, and it’s not not religious.

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.
