Following the Via Francigena, the ancient pilgrim path that dates back nearly two thousand years, Harry walks through England, France, Switzerland and Italy weaving a historical tapestry liberally coloured with tales of angels and saints, emperors and kings and war and revolution. He uncovers a little known route that leads him through vineyards and villages, towns and cities and over rivers and mountains to the heart of the Eternal City, Saint Peter’s Basilica.

‘My congratulations to Harry Bucknall. I thoroughly enjoyed Like a Tramp, Like a Pilgrim. It’s a wonderful book.’ – Martin Sheen, Actor and fellow pilgrim.


‘A remarkable story from a remarkable man’ – Alan Titchmarsh, Gardener and TV    presenter.
