London to St Albans Pilgrimage - a journey for the soul on your doorstep

Wed, 19 June 2019 - Fri, 21 June 2019

The Shrine of St Alban. (c) Tim Bull

Do you crave some time away from the busyness of life to boost your physical and spiritual wellbeing? Is your next holiday months away? If you are short on time but longing to slow down and get some head space, why not consider taking part in a pilgrimage close to home?

In 2019 we will launch a new 35 mile walking route, starting from St Paul’s (the City), collecting others at Southwark Cathedral (the South Bank) and Westminster Abbey (the world of politics).  We shall take in some of London’s most stunning parks, waterways and views with the final destination being the Shrine of St Alban, Britain’s first martyr.

The journey is in five stages, all easily accessible via public transport, making this a green pilgrimage and one you can fit around your normal weekly routine. Maybe do a stage after work one day? Or take time out over a weekend?

We will offer pilgrims a warm welcome at the end of their journey including a pilgrim’s badge and for groups a tour of the cathedral. And we would love you to share your photos along the way using #Alban.

We are organising an initial group pilgrimage which will include Bishop Stephen Venner providing spiritual reflections along the way. If you would like to join us, save the dates 19 – 21 June and get in touch to register your interest:
