Join the Blickling Estate team

At Blickling we have over 500 volunteers who help us in the house, garden, park, shops, RAF Oulton museum, cafes and offices across the whole estate. So how could you get involved?

Three reasons to volunteer...

 

Start your adventure with us today...

Just some of the ways you can get involved; welcome our visitors, join our costumed interpretation group, help in the stamp shop, become a room steward in the house, explore the estate as a dog ranger or use your gardening skills amongst the double borders.

Blickling estate welcomes 150,000 visitors through the doors every year and we couldn't do it without our band of volunteers who give a warm and friendly welcome to everyone as they arrive. Meet one them, Karen...

What does it take to be a garden volunteer?

What makes someone suddenly decide to come and give their time weeding and digging and as one volunteer put it ‘getting dirty fingernails’?

Why I love Blickling: A volunteer's story 

"Its just after 8 am and the air is frosty. Across the fields a low mist hangs. As we load the tractor and trailer our breath forms little clouds. Shortly we leave Able Heath Farm..."
