Things to do at Jubilee Lodge


Excursions from Jubilee Lodge showcase the best of the capital including the London Eye, Covent Garden and the world-famous West End theatre district. Our Essex centre is within easy reach of several excellent shopping facilities too, so if you are eager for some retail therapy, you will be spoilt for choice. Trips may also include Southend-on-Sea for anyone fancying a jaunt somewhere a bit further afield.

Jubilee Lodge is also featuring some special excursions, on selected dates throughout February and March. These excursions have limited spaces and are only available on selected dates. Please pre-book before your break.

In-centre entertainment

There is always a variety of in-centre activities available during the daytime at Jubilee Lodge, which could include exercise classes, arts and crafts sessions, quizzes and bingo. Your evenings, meanwhile, could feature discos, casino nights, karaoke, live entertainment or even a Friday night party! If you prefer something quieter, simply enjoy a social but quieter drink at the bar with your fellow guests and volunteers.

Please note: The excursions and entertainment on offer vary according to the date and theme of your break. If you are hoping to participate in a specific trip or activity, please ask about the itinerary when booking.
