Summary: The Pilgrims Way is a historic walk taken by followers of faith for centuries. It links Winchester Cathedral in Hampshire with Canterbury Cathedral in Kent, home of the shrine of the martyred archbishop, St Thomas Becket. Much of the way follows the North Downs chalk ridge through scenic southern England countryside while taking in a host of beautiful towns and villages, many with their own churches and places of worship. Some of the places visited on the route or passed close to are Winchester, Kings Worthy, Itchen Abbas, New Alresford, Alton, Farnham, Puttenham, Guildford, Dorking, Reigate, Caterham, Otford, Kemsing, Wrotham, Snodland, Detling, Charing, Chilham, Old Wives Lees, Chartham Hatch and Canterbury.
