Volunteer at the castle
If you'd like a new challenge helping us to keep this majestic castle special for everyone, for ever, then come along and join our merry band of volunteers.
We've opportunities across the property from helping with events to welcoming visitors that will provide you with a great way to meet lots of new people and support our work here at the castle.
Call our volunteer coordinator on 01580 831327 to register your interest.

Join in or watch competitors as they swim in the castle moat before heading off on a 21km bike ride and then 6km run.
It's a bit of an early start but a great way to begin your Sunday morning. Pack up a breakfast picnic and grab yourself a good viewing point around the moat or up on the hill overlooking the car park.
The castle is closed during the event but will be open at its usual time of 10.30am. Normal admission charges apply on opening.
