Travel through timeless countryside on stage two of the ancient Via Francigena pilgrimage route.
Whether the end of your UK Via Francigena pilgrimage or a step towards the full Rome experience, stage two of the Via Francigena is a gentle path to Dover across quiet Kent countryside and towards the English Channel at Dover.
The Waldershare Park estate offers an opportunity for pilgrim reflection at the Monumenta Romana sculpture and a view over the route to the Belvedere Tower. The Via Francigena follows the North Downs Way National Trail which soon brings you to Dover where it’s possible to explore this famous harbour city with its regular trips across the sea. Dover Castle is located just nearby and is an incredible must-see for this segment of the Via Francigena and do not miss the impressive and recently refurbished medieval pilgrimage rest at Maison Dieu. Remember to take a moment to contemplate your pilgrimage at the We are all Winners pilgrim sculpture at the Dover sea front.
