Pilgrimage is a reflection of our journey through life, which is ultimately to God. Our great cathedrals and churches were built to inspire and encourage pilgrims on this journey, with a vision of beauty and holiness, pointing to our heavenly destination.

Evening Pilgrimages offer a guided walk through the Cathedral, accompanied by historical insights, prayers, and silence. They are suitable for parishes, ecumenical groups, prayer groups, deaneries and so on. They start with light refreshments in the Abbot’s Kitchen, and end with Compline by candlelight and a visit to the Shrine of St Alban.

Our next Evening Pilgrimage will take place on:

Wednesday 30 September
