Right across the street from the Natural History Museum is this spacious concrete building, erected in 1961 in memory of Lord Baden-Powell, founder of the Boy Scout movement. Throughout the year, thousands of scouts and guides visit the house when in London, and the hostel with 180 beds (all en suite) and conference facilities which plays host to around 300,000 people a year, from more than thirty different countries. Room charges are reduced for scouts and guides, but rates for the general public are still competitive. The Baden-Powell house hosts many weekly and special events, from performances to Ceroc dance classes. The lobby is home to a small permanent exhibition detailing Robert Baden-Powell's life and the birth of scouting.
