  • Canterbury

25th September 2022

Journey 19.5 miles 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 and even on to Jerusalem.

It’s a journey of purpose, an opportunity to reflect and enjoy the soothing rhythm of walking in nature with like-minded companions, through the beautiful Kent countryside. It’s also a challenge. Twenty miles is a lot of walking, so please be sure you can manage the length and pace. You will learn about nature, history and get a chance to experience some pilgrim practices along the way.

You’ll receive a blessing from Canterbury Cathedral before beginning the walk.
