Our volunteers are essential for sharing Croome’s stories

Join in and experience something different

Our volunteers not only allow us to open Croome but also to share the history and stories of this fascinating place. We are constantly in need of more volunteers in various roles across Croome, and thanks to our upcoming work to Croome Court we will be creating new roles to support a range of exciting developments on our journey.

We offer free tours to our visitors as often as we can, all the way through the week. We get many great comments and we want more. We're aiming to provide more guided tours at weekends and through the winter and we need your help to do this. You don't need any previous knowledge but you'll need to be confident and friendly to be a brilliant tour guide at Croome.

Garden stewards

Our visitors love seeing and talking to volunteers in the parkland, but we need more help to steward the lakeside and parkland walks. Armed with a bag of handy items and information, we would love you to be on hand for our visitors outdoors. You'll need to be friendly and approachable to be a great garden steward at Croome.

Conservation cleaners

Half of Croome's visitors enter the house every year. This means mud, wear and tear. We need your help to clean up and also take part in conserving its precious floors, chimneypieces and contents. You'll need to be active, friendly and able to talk to our visitors about the work you're doing to be a great conservation assistant at Croome.
