Service Description

Discover London locations with connections to Girl Guiding history including the site of the first World Centre in London and GG HQ on this full day walking tour with journeys on public transit (bus, Overground and Underground). Learn about Guiding's royal connections, the people involved with the movement, and the top secret work of Girl Guides in World War One. Our route takes us to iconic and historic sights of London like Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey as well as St. James's Park where we will hopefully see some wildlife in the form of Pelicans and feral parrots. The tour extends to sights outside of the central area with a visit to the site of the 1909 Scout rally and the wondrously atmospheric cemetery famous for its wildlife containing the Baden-Powell family grave. You tour guide Catherine is a Friend of Pax Lodge and a long-time volunteer with USA Girl Scouts Overseas. She will tailor the tour content to your particular group. Each participant needs to bring an Oyster or contactless with them with enough stored value for multiple journeys. Please dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes. There is also an option to start the tour at the Pax Lodge Girl Guiding/ Girl Scouting Centre and it can also be done by coach or vehicle hired by you.
