Augustine Camino Walking Pilgrimage
The Augustine Camino is a series of escorted day trips or a week long walking pilgrimage route through some of Kent’s most beautiful countryside to local sacred sites such as Rochester Cathedral, Canterbury Cathedral, Aylesford Priory and St. Augustine’s Church, Ramsgate.
The Camino provides pilgrims with many unique experiences such as coming face to face with the Relics of famous saints (including Thomas Becket), the opportunity to meet Carmelite friars and Cathedral canons, walking through apple orchards, vineyards and hop gardens or running fingers over crosses carved by departing crusaders.
Accommodation booking, baggage transfers and church welcomes are available here.
There is a Compostela available from St Augustine’s for those who have completed the whole route, more details here
