Pilgrim Ways – Catholic Pilgrimage Sites in Britain and Ireland

David Alton

This Guide to the best of the holy places of Catholic Britain and Ireland, is the ideal pilgrim’s companion. David Alton takes us on a personal tour from Celtic sites such as Iona and Lindisfarne to the great houses of recusant families, from holy wells to Marian shrines, and from Croagh Patrick and Knock, to the Tower of London.

As well as covering many well-known pilgrimage sites, he also gives a suggestion for a “walk of witness” from Westminster Cathedral to Tyburn Convent in London, taking in some fascinating churches on the way.

The guide is a blend of history, spiritual inspiration, personal stories and practical information which will enhance any pilgrimage – whether the pilgrim travels alone, with family or perhaps with the parish or diocese.  A list of religious houses with telephone numbers is provided in the recourses category on this website which will help pilgrims find suitable accommodation.
