Perhaps you're passionate about plants, or would like to help visitors explore the house. Maybe you're keen to show off the deer, or to put your computer skills to good use. Whatever you're interested in, we're bound to have a volunteer role to suit you.

There are so many reasons to volunteer

  • Meet people from all walks of life
  • Use your energy and enthusiasm in a wide variety of roles across the property
  • Try your hand at a variety of activities
  • Learn new skills and gain valuable experience
  • Stay fit and keep active, whatever your age
  • Help us keep Dyrham looking beautiful for our visitors
  • Interact with members of the public and help them enjoy their visit to Dyrham Park
