Important update. Gilwell Park venue closure announcement.

 

The event, conference and hotel  facilities on the Gilwell Park estate exists to provide a financial contribution to The Scouts and enable the work of the movement in giving young people Skills for Life. Due to the huge financial impact COVID-19 has had on Gilwell Park, the business is no longer viable and we’ve been forced to make the difficult decision to close the venue. There will no longer be any weddings and private events, conferencing or hotel stays at Gilwell Park.

 

The team have been working relentlessly behind the scenes to ensure all guests are contacted, either by phone or email and are refunded in reasonable time. If you have any specific questions or haven't yet been contacted about a booking or hotel stay, the quickest way to get in touch is by emailing info@gilwellpark.co.uk. Please bear with us whilst we work through this challenging time.

 

Everyone at Gilwell Park is sorry to see the venue closing. Looking ahead, the site will continue to be used for helping young people from across the UK and around the world develop skills they can use for the rest of their lives.
