Pilgrims' Way
Pilgrims' Way
The Pilgrims' Way is a 120 mile historic route running between Winchester in Hampshire and Folkestone, Kent. The route is supposed to have been taken by pilgrims from Winchester to the shrine of Thomas Becket at Canterbury in Kent, but actually goes to the South of Canterbury to Folkestone. Archaeological finds date it at least to 500-400 BC, and as far back as the Stone Age.

Nowadays the route goes through quiet countryside as well as busy roads. The trail parallels other routes including the North Downs Way.
