We are a family business based in Swindon, Wiltshire and organise pilgrimages to many destinations around the world. Our most popular pilgrimages include the Holy Land, Poland and Mexico. We also offer pilgrimages to Spain, Italy, Medjugorje, Fatima, Canada and Asia. Our success is due to our team’s dedication and hard work. We understand your needs as a pilgrim, and we aim to provide you the very best value for money pilgrimages with itineraries that are second to none!

Our speciality is the Holy Land. Our tried and tested itineraries are very popular and offer the very best value for money! Our long and trusted partners, based in the Holy Land, handle all our ground arrangements. Their local expertise and commitment to All Saints Travel ensures everything is organised and arranged perfectly accordingly to our various itineraries. This partnership greatly aids our growing popularity and helps deliver our world-class Holy Land pilgrimages.

Group travel is rewarding in so many ways. Many of our pilgrims enjoy travelling with a group where they can meet people, make new friends, and simply just share beautiful memories with others surrounding them. There is no greater bonding experience than traveling with others, so whether you are a solo traveller or travelling with someone, there is something amazing to experience. 

Thank you to all our loyal Church Leaders, organisers and pilgrims who have travelled with us in the past, some of which continue to do so every year on their annual pilgrimages. Your support and loyalty, together with your strong faith helps deliver our truly magnificent pilgrimages and we will be forever grateful.
