Discover central London locations with connections to the founders of Girl Guiding including where Girl Scouts of the USA Founder Juliette Gordon Low lived and the site of the first World Centre in London on this 2 1/2 hour walking tour with a short journey by bus. 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, Hyde Park 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. You tour guide Catherine has a personal connection to Girl Scouting as a long-term volunteer. She will tailor the tour content to suit your group. We will meet next to the Bond Street tube (on the East side/ top of South Molton Lane) and finish close to Westminster tube station. Each participant needs to bring an Oyster or contactless with them with enough stored value for one bus journey. Please also dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes as the total walking length is about 3 miles. There is also an option to start the tour at the Pax Lodge Girl Guiding/ Girl Scouting Centre should you be staying there.
