Testimonials

“I was lucky to walk the Augustine Camino during 5 crispy spring days. It was a very relaxing walk along this old pilgrimage route, passing through beautiful English countryside. We were guided by Andrew Kelly and his wife Paula’s expertise. I’d recommend it to anyone in need of a change or a break.”

– Tina Elmefjäll, Sweden

“We had a great time on our pilgrimage, everything was organised perfectly and the accommodation was excellent.  We particularly found the blessing in Canterbury Cathedral crypt very moving.”

– Barry Holt

“Thank you for a thoroughly enjoyable, well paced and interesting walk. Excellent company, leadership and booklet. I’m really looking forward to the next one!”

– Margaret Marchant

“Walking the St Augustine Camino in early April was a relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable experience. Our journey through the gentle Kent countryside took us across farmland, ancient orchards and tranquil Spring woodlands. Andrew our excellent guide, led us at a leisurely pace and described the places of historical importance along the way. His knowledge of Kentish life over the centuries added another layer of discovery to our walk. Taking part in the walk offers the chance to escape the rigours of modern life for just a few days and also the opportunity to enjoy the experience that a shared walk offers. Our arrival at Canterbury Cathedral with a Pilgrim’s welcome from Canon Clare was a very special end to our 5 day camino.”

– Melanie Broadhead, Cornwall

“I decided to walk just a day of the Augustine Camino having seen the recent Pilgrimage programme on BBC television. Never having done a walk with anybody except my husband and our dogs, I had an open mind but hoped I would enjoy it. I think April was a good choice as the weather was kind to us – neither too hot nor too cold. It was really lovely to chat to the other pilgrims who were all happy to share their thoughts and reasons for walking the Camino as a group. Some had walked other well-known pilgrim routes and shared some of their experiences. I found the walk to be a nice mix of history, countryside and companionship with like-minded people – I imagine it to be a typical modern day pilgrimage. We did stop at several really interesting local churches and the Shrine of St Jude in Faversham, where we were lucky enough to meet a Carmelite monk. I really enjoyed the experience and at the end wished I could have walked one more day to finish in Canterbury and be greeted by Canon Clare at the Cathedral.  I would love to do either another part of the Camino or perhaps the whole walk next time!”

– Sue, Ashford

“For anyone who enjoys walking in beautiful countryside, with sweeping rolling hills, and would like a bit extra in terms of English culture and history, I can enthusiastically recommend this trip. The local beer proved popular as well. Kent is famous for hops and beer making.”

– Katlin, London

I went on a group tour with the Augustine Camino that was led by Andrew. It was a FANTASTIC experience. Such beautiful countryside. It was hard to believe we were just an hour or two away from the hustle and bustle of London as we walked through fields, forests, and more. Such great history too. So many highlights, but getting to see where the pilgrims from the 1300s — including Geoffrey Chaucer — stayed was a highlight. The private pilgrim tour of Canterbury Cathedral was quite memorable too. Our guide, Andrew, was perfect. He’s a born tour guide and knows both the trails and the history inside and out. I highly recommend taking a walking trip on the Augustine Camino. Ideally do 5-7 days. Or even just a 2-3 day weekend will really recharge your batteries.”
