The Augustine Camino is a new long distance walk that celebrates the rebirth of interest in pilgrimage.
It takes a leisurely stroll through the Kent countryside, visiting many holy places that have been renewed and re-dedicated in recent times.
The walk starts at Rochester Cathedral, next to the fresco of the Baptism of King Ethelbert by Augustine and ends at Pugin’s Gothic Revival masterpiece, St Augustine’s in Ramsgate. On the way it takes in medieval Aylesford Priory, once again run for pilgrims by the Carmelite Order, St Dunstan’s Canterbury, where remains of St Thomas More were recently re-discovered and the stunning Art Nouveau stained glass at Wickhambreaux to name a few highlights.
There can be few walks that have such a concentration of history, beauty and living heritage.
The Camino has been designed by real enthusiasts who understand the needs of modern walkers. It is easily completed in a week, very accessible and is well served with accommodation. There is even a beautiful Kent country pub for lunch each day.
