The North Wales Pilgrims Way is a long distance walking route beginning near Holywell and ending at Bardsey Island. At 133.9 miles long, it is best tackled over several days and is a contemporary interpretation of the route pilgrims would have taken across North Wales in medieval times. The development of the trail began in 2011 and the route, which links ancient churches dedicated to the saints of the 6th century, was officially opened in 2014.
Walking the North Wales Pilgrim’s Way gives you the opportunity to visit holy sites and to escape the stresses of everyday life while admiring the incredible wildflowers and wildlife along the trail. In addition to visiting the churches on the route, you can take time out to hike up Snowdon or to experience the many other attractions in the region.
