  • Visitor Information

Baden-Powell House is now a modern 180 room budget hostel welcoming both Scout and Guide members but also open to the general public.

It also houses a small exhibition of Lord Baden-Powell's life in Scouting, with artefacts and a souvenir shop.

The building, opened in 1961, is a living memorial to Baden-Powell, and was originally paid for by Scouts around the world.

Outside the building is a statue of Baden-Powell by Don Potter. This is the only granite statue in London.
