OTA: Open to All

The British Pilgrimage Trust believes that everyone can make pilgrimage among Britain’s spiritual landscape. We promote open accessibility to pilgrimage in Britain, and to holy places found upon the path.


So to help this happen, we have designed a symbol promising universal welcome: OTA.


Pilgrimage is an ancient human ritual that has been practiced globally throughout history.

In modern Britain, pilgrimage can be made by anyone, with or without faith.

Pilgrims from all walks of life are invited to make journeys on foot to Britain’s holy places (of all kinds), without prescription, and without disturbing others’ right to do the same.


Where you see this symbol, you can expect a warm welcome for pilgrims of all faiths and non-faiths alike.
