Pilgrimage: A journey with purpose
Join us to discover new ways along ancient routes, following in the footsteps of kings, queens, saints and pilgrims to find peace, tranquility and transformation in nature. Pilgrimage is described as a journey with purpose and is taken by up to 450 million people every year across the World. Our Green Pilgrimage project has involved highlighting some of these pathways and creating new ways for visitors to experience them incorporating wellbeing, local produce, arts, heritage and sustainability. Encouraging pilgrims to tread lightly and explore the beautiful countryside, to meet with locals and connect with the culture, to enjoy the journey and spend time in rest and reflection.
