Exploring our Anglican Roots: A Pilgrimage with St. Alban’s Episcopal Church

Throughout our journey, we will be tracing the footsteps of history, from the medieval charm of Canterbury to the ancient mysteries of Stonehenge, and finally the iconic landmarks of London. After flying into London, our journey will begin with three nights in Canterbury. Over the course of the three nights, we will immerse ourselves in the rich history and stunning architecture of Canterbury Cathedral while allowing for time to discover the quaint cobbled streets of Canterbury town with its charming shops and local eateries. Our journey then continues on to Salisbury, a city steeped in history and home to the magnificent Salisbury Cathedral. We will spend four nights here, staying at Sarum College nestled within the cathedral grounds. Over the next four nights, we will have the opportunity to unravel the mysteries of Stonehenge, walk through the ancient ruins of Old Sarum, and delve into the stories of the etched stones of Salisbury Cathedral. The final leg of the journey takes us to the capital city where we will spend three nights exploring the iconic landmarks and architectural wonders which London has to offer. During these last few days, we will have the opportunity to visit our namesake St Alban’s Cathedral, marvel at St Paul’s Cathedral and soak in the historical significance of Westminster
Abbey. London, a city where modernity and tradition coexist, offers a perfect backdrop to our concluding days of exploration. So come and join me as we Explore Our Anglican Roots.
