About Your Accommodation

All the hotels used by the pilgrimage have en-suite facilities and good quality food (three meals a day). Prices tend to reflect the proximity of the hotel to the Grotto and do not necessarily indicate superior facilities.

Single room supplements apply in all hotels and these prices vary, depending on which hotel you select.

PLEASE NOTE - the booking form only shows five hotel options. If your preferred hotel is not listed there (but is on the price list) please just write down which hotel you wish to stay in.

Some hotels are more suited to pilgrims in wheelchairs, both in their interior design and their location. If you would like advice on a particular hotel, please contact either Tangney Tours or the pilgrimage administrator.

The Birmingham pilgrimage to Lourdes is organised with Tangney Tours.

Making your own way to Lourdes- Affiliation

Affiliate pilgrims make their own way to Lourdes and book their own accommodation, but they join in the Diocesan programme.

There is an Affiliation fee of £45.00 for each pilgrim who affiliates. A Pilgrimage Prayer Book and Birmingham Badge will be provided for these pilgrims along with an invitation to join all Liturgies during the pilgrimage. The fee also contributes towards the cost of the running and organisation of the Pilgrimage, including the Lourdes Sanctuary levy.
