Cubs, News, Scouts

Sleep at the Museum

31 December 2017

Back in December thirteen intrepid Scout & Cubs headed down to London to spend A Night at the (Science) Museum. The Saturday morning was cold but dry when we caught the 09:24 from the village and headed up to Stratford International for the start of our London Adventure. 

The journey would see the group use all forms of London Transport starting with the driverless Docklands Light Railway as we headed to Tower Gateway. At the Tower of London we consumed a rather chilly picnic before popping down to the Thames for a photo of Tower Bridge.

After lunch, we headed underground onto the Tube network to Parliament Square. We took in the sights of a rather scaffold clad Big Ben and then headed round the corner into the Mall to walk past the Cenotaph too see the wreaths similar to those we placed at our own village memorial the month before.


We continued walking through Horse Guards Parade and up to Trafalgar Square to see the grand tree which is gifted to us by the people of Norway as a token of gratitude for support during WWII.


When we reached Leicester Square, we jumped on a bus and travelled up Regent & Oxford Street before stopping off for pizza. With our stomachs full and our bodies warmed we started our final hike of the day past Marble Arch and through Hyde Park and into the Science Museum where we would be spending the night…

If you’d like your child to become part of the adventure or be the next Bear Grylls then Cubs is on Tuesday from 6:30pm and is for any child aged 8 – 10 ½. Full details can be found at or email
