The 104-mile Thames Pilgrim Way is a brand new pilgrim route running through the heart of the Diocese of Oxford, which covers the three counties of Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire. In September 2014  the Rt Revd John Pritchard inaugurated the route with a ten-day pilgrimage, marking the end of his ministry as Bishop of Oxford. But the intention is that the route should exist in perpetuity – so that walkers of this part of the Thames Path can experience a different dimension to a much-loved and well-trodden route.

On this site you will find our suggestions for walking the route in ten stages, each of approximately ten miles, with information on the facilities you can expect to find along the way. On each day, we tell you about some churches you may like visit and offer material for spiritual reflection. And if you are new to pilgrimage, have a look at the About section, where there is an introduction and links to more resources you may find helpful.
