Pre-Raphaelite Pilgrimage

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Join a 13-mile pilgrimage from the historic George Inn at London Bridge to the arts and crafts shrine Red House, the only house commissioned and lived in by William Morris.

The pilgrimage can be undertaken on foot, by bicycle or public transport.

Weaving through the astonishing green spaces of southeast London you'll discover a live version of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, telling stories that inspired Morris.

As the sun sets, your quest concludes in the intimate walled garden of Red House for a Pilgrims' Party with live folk music from the English Folk Dance and Song Society, guest speakers, a hog roast and local ales.

To honour Red House and all things Pre-Raphaelite, redheads (natural or un-natural) get tickets at the concessionary rate of £16.

A collaboration between Curiocity and the National Trust's London Project.

  • Register at the George between 9am and 11am
  • Tickets £20 (redheads and NT members £16; child £14) from
