Right in the heart of the action
Based at Holland Park Youth Hostel, where the facilities are of a high standard, we'll head into London for an amazing adventure: 

Saturday is the day we'll travel by executive coach, arrive at our hostel and then head for some food at Nando's! We'll then head straight into the centre of London for Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square and Downing Street. 

Sunday brings a new adventure with the science museum; whiz, pop and bang! In the afternoon, we'll visit the Natural History Museum and from there head for pizza! 

Sunday evening will take us to a west-end performance! 

Monday morning is an early start, with a blue badge guided tour, followed by a flight on the London eye before returning home. 

Wow! What a weekend!

Cubs builds confidence, independence and skills for life. 

Cubs go Capital is planned, delivered and managed by a team of experienced adult leaders from our scout district. Safety is always our number one priority and we have a great track record of safely leading large events (see examples here). 

Our comprehensive event plan manages every aspect of the event. Young people will work in small groups of around 15, led by experienced adults trained in first aid, and be supervised at all times. Our team work within a defined a set of protocols, risk assessments and contingency plans (for a range of scenarios) in our event plan which is available upon request.

Our adults work closely with SafeStay, our accommodation providers, as well as our activity providers, to ensure every aspect of the event is safely delivered.

Safety is our top priority.
