Elmham House – the Shrine’s Pilgrim Hotel

The Catholic National Shrine’s main pilgrim accommodation, Elmham House, is situated in the heart of Walsingham on Friday Market Place.  It is a stone’s throw away from the Abbey Grounds and 30 minute walk away from the Slipper Chapel Shrine.  Our aim is to provide reasonably priced accommodation for those who wish to visit the Shrine, so it is not possible to book specific rooms, although preferences will be noted.
