Description
Last chance to book places on our 19.5 mile one-day challenge walk for adventurous women of any or no faith. We will make a modern-day pilgrimage along the famous Via Francigena or “Way that comes from France”, setting our intentions and walking with purpose. We journey from Canterbury- considered the heart of Christianity in Britain- to Dover from where the pilgrims of old would have started their journeys over the Alps to St Peter’s Basilica in Rome.

Travel Advice
Travelling to Canterbury: We always recommend the greenest option of public transport where possible. By car: Be warned, parking is expensive in Canterbury https://www.canterbury.gov.uk/parking-and-roads/find-car-park/ By train: The nearest main stations are Canterbury West to which SouthEastern operates a high-speed train from St Pancras in just 51 minutes. Canterbury East from London Victoria is only a five-minute walk from the city centre.
What To Bring
Please bring plenty of water, a packed lunch and snacks. Twenty miles is a challenging distance and there are very few places to purchase anything to eat or drink on the pilgrim way between Canterbury and Dover. You may also wish to bring some food to share in the ancient spirit of pilgrimage.
