What is the British Pilgrimage Trust?
We exist to ‘advance British pilgrimage as a form of cultural heritage that promotes holistic wellbeing, for the public benefit.’
Pilgrimage in Britain is Open to All – ‘Bring Your Own Beliefs’.
We: communicate the way pilgrimage answers modern needs;
– provide free access to: a pilgrim route network that currently has over 250 routes across Britain with maps, photos and info; a Britain-wide Sanctuary low-cost pilgrim hostel accommodation network of churches, church halls, village halls, farm barns, hostels and bothies.
– provide additional inspiration and tools to make your own pilgrimage, such as our book Britain’s Pilgrim Places (600 places and 100 routes), and promote other books such as Magical Britain, and individual route guidebooks.
– form an online community of pilgrims, and also work with local communities on the ground.
