Holywell to Bardsey Island - British Pilgrimage Route

Pilgrim’s Way, North Wales

Bardsey Island

The 130 mile Pilgrims Way begins in Holywell, running across North Wales to Bardsey Island. An important religious site since the 6th Century and known as the “island of 20,000 Saints,” the island is now regarded for its scenery, wildlife and rugged coastline, 

A pilgrimage route since the Middle Ages, the route starts at Basingwerk Abbey and first heads inland from Holywell, heading west. At Abergwyngregyn the path borrows sections of the Wales Coast Path and Llyn Coast Path, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and visits many stone churches dedicated to Celtic Saints.
