Overview

The Peak Pilgrimage is a long distance footpath walk from Ilam to Eyam designed to be enjoyed by all. Nowhere is the walking more lovely, relaxing, accessible and soul-restorative than in the Peak District National Park. But it has an added twist - this is also a pilgrimage walk designed as a spiritual experience. This is neither dreary nor frightening because pilgrimages are meant to be fun!

I walked the Peak Pilgrimage with another and with two dogs, which dogs were welcome in all the churches.

Excellent walk, spiritually uplifting. However walking boots are needed as some of the paths can be very muddy (the path into Monyash from the Tissington Trail has been churned up by trail bikes even though there are signs - no motorised vehicles). l suggest walkers...More

The bus from Ashbourne to Ilam is fine but if you fancy an extra 5 mile stroll then please see the instructions on the website for 'Walking to the Start!'.

Thoroughly enjoyable long distance walk. We split the walk over 4 days which gave us time to enjoy each stop over location too. The walk book is well written and even though we are not regular church attendees, visiting each church along the way and...More

Thank you for suggesting putting the prayers in a separate section and trying harder to get the stamp pages + maps + directions nearer together in the guide book.

We are not sure about overnight parking in Ilam but there is day parking. For the Peak Pilgrimage we would suggest parking in the free car park at Eyam where we have Parish Council approval.
