Pax Lodge is the third world center to be located in London. It is part of the Olave Centre—where the World Bureau (the headquarters for WAGGGS) is located—in northwest London in the area called Hampstead. The first two world centers were Our Ark (1939-1959) near Buckingham Palace and Olave House (1959-1988) in western London. Pax Lodge celebrated its grand opening in 1991.
Although Pax Lodge is in an urban setting with all the excitement of Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, the original Hard Rock Café, and London shows; you are within walking distance of beautiful Hampstead Heath (with Parliament Hill where the kites were flying in Mary Poppins) and Primrose Hill where you are high above central London. Sites like Stonehenge, Bath, and Hampton Court are just a train ride away.
While at Pax Lodge girls and adults can participate in international programs and service projects on Hampstead Heath and nearby Waterhouse Close.
