FAQ’s

Is this a religious pilgrimage?
It is as religious as you want it to be. All and no-faiths are equally welcome. British Pilgrimage operates a “Bring Your Own Beliefs” policy.

That said - when you are approaching Canterbury, you should expect to find Canterbury-like things. This Cathedral is the centre of the worldwide Anglican Church. But there will be no pressure on you to subscribe to any angle or form of faith. Just follow your own path.

Are there fitness limitations?
Pilgrimage is moderately intense. If you struggle to walk all day, this type of pilgrimage may be an unsuitable activity for you right now. But if you walk slowly, and start early, we believe this is a very manageable distance for the majority of people.

Due to the stiles and off-road access along much of this route, unfortunately this pilgrimage is not suitable for mobility-impaired people or those requiring wheelchair access. Sorry. We're working on good alternatives...


This pilgrimage is open to all. Bring your own beliefs.

We hope to see you on the path.
