Silhouette of Mont Saint Michel/sea shell/walking stickPilgrims' Trail

Hampshire, Portsmouth

The Trail, also called the Hampshire Millennium Pilgrims' Trail, forms part of a longer route – St Michael’s Way – between Winchester and Mont Saint Michel in Normandy, France.

It follows a route dating from medieval times when pilgrims visited Winchester Cathedral from the country, and abroad, to worship at the shrine of St Swithun, a former teacher of the young Alfred the Great. In Hampshire, the Trail follows the course of a Roman road to Bishop's Waltham and from there via Kingsmead to the finish.
