Become a volunteer
We have over 600 volunteers helping us to run Polesden Lacey, but we are always looking for more volunteers from all backgrounds and all ages. Opportunities range from room guides, gardeners and retail assistants to piano players, researchers and photographers. Whether you are interested in a one-off activity or a longer term commitment, we would like to talk to you.
Email us to find out about our current vacancies and how to get involved.
Room guides are vital in bringing Polesden Lacey to life, for inspiring our visitors and helping them to learn more about the place in an interesting and enjoyable way.
Room guides also play a valuable part in safeguarding our interiors and collections whilst helping to communicate key conservation messages.
Visitor Services volunteer
Play a key role in welcoming visitors and act as a point of contact to answer questions visitors may have during their visit. You may also help with children’s trails as well as other events and activities throughout the year.
