Available on selected dates from January 2022 for those lacking the time or energy to walk the full route it is now possible to experience the Augustine Camino over a weekend based at Palace Farm in the Kent Downs. Enter Canterbury via Harbledown, St Dunstan’s and the Great West Gate just as medieval pilgrims did. Attend Evensong at the Cathedral and visit beautiful churches and villages full of extraordinary artwork all in the company of Andrew Kelly, Founder of the Augustine Camino. Andrew will open a world of stories and significance to you, showing you wonders hidden away from the casual visitor.
The weekend costs £300 per person including two night’s shared B&B accommodation (or cheaper bunk rooms), tour guide and taxis. The only additional cost is four meals taken at selected pubs and Minster Abbey Tea Rooms. There is normally a minimum of three people per booking but if you are fewer, get in touch and we will try to find a convenient date when others are also planning to come. There is between four and six miles of walking each day.
