The Pilgrimage to Canterbury is an annual event held over the second May bank holiday weekend (26th – 29th May 2017). This is our 27th Pilgrimage.

100 people will walk the 74-mile route from Trafalgar Square to Canterbury, leaving on Friday morning from St Martin-in-the-Fields and arriving at Canterbury on Monday afternoon. Walking in Chaucer’s footsteps you’ll get to meet a wonderful and diverse group of The Connection’s supporters, some homeless, most not, but all enjoying the lively company, the spectacular countryside and the delicious food we have along the way!

Friday 26th May
Trafalgar Square to Swanley (19 miles)

Saturday 27th May
Swanley to Aylesford (19.5 miles)

Sunday 28th May

Or a range of last day walks of different lengths if you are a Day Walker:
