Event: Our 29th Pilgrimage to Canterbury

Pilgrims setting off from the steps of St Martin-in-the-Fields

The Pilgrimage to Canterbury is an annual event held over the second May bank holiday weekend (24th – 27th May 2019). This is our 29th Pilgrimage. Last year it raised over £45K for the work of The Connection.

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!

Saturday 25th May
