Scouts, skills and century of change: the untold story of Gilwell Park

Curated by The Scouts Heritage Service, we’re delighted to bring you an exhibition which explores 600 years of history at Gilwell Park, Epping Forest’s hidden gem. From society scandal to Scouting wonderland, Gilwell Park has an amazing range of stories to tell.
