Oxford Cathedral Pilgrimages in a Day

These are six pilgrimages you can make into Oxford from the surrounding countryside. They start and end at holy places, with more en route. Each route is accessible to start by public transport (apart from the route starting at Binsey). And each route ends in the same place: Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford. Make sure it will be open before setting out – check opening times here.

The best possible arrival for your pilgrimage is on time for Choral Evensong, drawing on the world-class, free choral tradition that is present in Oxford. Check the Music List here to plan your arrival for Choral Evensong…

For circular day routes, use either a combination of the orange and light orange lines on the Google Map below, OR a the light blue and purple lines, or the dark blue route.

Discover holy places, and bring your own beliefs.

Pilgrimage by foot is connected with places and landscape, and how those places make you feel. Read about holy places.

At the British Pilgrimage Trust, we believe a pilgrimage should be made on an individual’s own terms. We are founded on the principle that we can all bring our own beliefs to the journey, accessible and welcoming to all.
