Opened by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in 1961 and initially built to provide Scouts with an affordable place to stay while visiting London, 65 Queen's Gate has operated as a conference and event centre since 1987. Any income the venue generates, goes back into supporting Scouting in the UK, changing the lives of young people.


This Lego house…


Built with bricks donated by members of The Scout Association back in 1957, Baden-Powell House was built as a tribute to the founder of Scouting, Lord Baden-Powell. The architect Ralph Tubbs, was well-known for designing the Dome of Discovery, part of the successful Festival of Britain Exhibition on the South Bank in London in 1951.

'Thank you for hosting our conference. Communication in the run up to the day was friendly, informative, and timely and gave me confidence in the venue and staff. I felt you went the extra mile to meet our requirements and to help the day run smoothly. On the day staff were friendly, efficient, helpful and a joy to work with. We'll be back again in the future.'
