A walk on the wild side

Discover how we manage the island to ensure its future.
The birthplace of Scouting and Guiding
A must for anyone who has ever been a Scout or Guide! Our guide will take you on an exploration of the original campsite from 1907, activities the boys took part in and the worldwide movement now. You will also see Baden-Powell’s statue and the ‘Trading Post’ souvenir shop.
Brownsea through the ages
Take a stroll back through Brownsea’s varied history, from thriving Victorian pottery community to first-ever Scout camp, ‘safe’ home for refugees during the Second World War to safe haven for nationally and internationally important wildlife today. Discover the vital role it plays in nature conservation on this enjoyable guided walk.
Off island talks
We have a dedicated team of volunteers who travel across Dorset to deliver talks about Brownsea. If you belong to a group or know someone who is and would enjoy one of our talks, please contact email@example.com.
