Boarhunt is famous for being part of the Pilgrims Trails below is a brief history of the trail.

A short history of the Hampshire Pilgrim's Trail

Follow the 155 mile medieval route from the shrine of St Swithun at Winchester Cathedral to Mont St Michael in Normandy.

Weave across the landscape through Bishop's Waltham and Southwick to Portsmouth. The trail follows in the footsteps of the Miquelots, pilgrims who made the long journey to worship in Normandy. Today there are special waymark signs, green in Hampshire and blue in France leading to the medieval sanctuary.

The Norman sanctuary of Mont St Michel attracted pilgrims from Scandinavia, Italy and Germany, as well as from Britain. Most pilgrims stopped at the Mount on their way to Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain.

The Hampshire Millennium Pilgrims Trail which opened in 1999, is a 29-mile section that is waymarked with green disks attached to wooden and metal posts, trees and street furniture. In the French section the waymarkes are blue.

Within Portsmouth, the section of the route from Portsbridge to the Ferry Terminal is a shared cycling and pedestrian route and also marked with blue cycle and pedestrian route signs.
