Starting at Rochester Cathedral the Augustine Camino passes through the beautiful and productive countryside of Kent for 70 miles via Aylesford Priory and Canterbury Cathedral to the Shrine of St Augustine in Ramsgate.  The route celebrates the mission of St Augustine in 597 to convert the English to Christianity, visiting many sites of global historical significance. It also explores stunning examples of art and architecture, from the medieval to the modern. Pretty villages and country pubs are conveniently placed all along the way.

The Augustine Camino is an official feeder route for the Camino de Santiago Compostela and Pilgrim Stamps – Augustine Camino.
