Britain’s Sanctuary Network

As part of the BPT’s development of the Old Way, we are working to provide sanctuary to pilgrims along the path: low-cost accommodation with a high-impact experience through welcoming pilgrims into the heart of communities. Various offers of Sanctuary exist on pilgrim paths across Britain, such as the Old Way to CanterburyGolden Valley Pilgrim Way; and Cornish Celtic Way.

This project has recently launched in May 2022.

Access to Sanctuary Network for booking info is available exclusively to Friends of the BPT

For Sanctuary venues please contact us for our Starter Pack, that gives advice on governance, operations, promotion, and a helpful checklist.

Pilgrims will contact sanctuaries directly in order to organise accommodation along the various routes tagged ‘Sanctuary’ on our homepage map.

All offers of sanctuary are made in exchange for a donation – at each church’s discretion, between £5-£20 per pilgrim, depending upon facilities offered, or with a sliding scale based on a pilgrim’s income.
