For centuries pilgrimage was one of the greatest adventures on earth, involving epic journeys across the country and around the world. This series sees Simon Reeve retrace the exciting adventures of our ancestors. He meets inspirational modern travellers sees extraordinary sights and learns about the forgotten aspects of pilgrimage, including the vice, thrills and dangers that all awaited travellers. He explores the faith, the hopes desires, and even the food that helped to keep medieval Britons and more recent travellers on the road. Simon journeys first from the Holy Island of Lindisfarne in northern England to Canterbury.
Then through France an northern Spain to Santiago de Compostela, before he crosses the mighty Alps on his way to Rome. Finally he heads east to glorious Istanbul,Turkey, then on to the Holy Land and his final destination, Jerusalem. In this series Simon will immerse himself in the pilgrimage experience of the past and the present: he will walk long hard miles, travel by sea, stay with monks, cross deserts and check points. He will encounter the kindness of strangers and the fellowship of walking the pilgrim routes. He will often forsake the modern comforts we have come to expect when travelling; he will sleep in dormitories with other pilgrims and eat their simple food. In re-living pilgrimage he will call upon numerous accounts of travellers, from across the centuries. Simon will explore how medieval Christianity changed from being at the centre of life, and death to the periphery of Victorian life and explore the impetus for our consumer driven society's return to pilgrimage. The age of Pilgrimage is back and Simon is about to go straight into it's heart. All the way to Jerusalem...
