Turning tourists into visitors and visitors into pilgrims. Year of Cathedrals, Year of Pilgrimage.

2020 brings together a remarkable number of individual English cathedral anniversaries and initiatives that help tell Britain’s story - past and present - and offer a creative and positive way to look to the future.

We will be holding and hosting a programme of services and events to celebrate this special year.

Thanks to an initiative between the Association of English Cathedrals and the British Pilgrimage Trust, there will be one day pilgrimage routes to every Church of England cathedral highlighting the importance of spiritual, mental and physical well-being. That's why 2020 is Year of Cathedrals, Year of Pilgrimage.
