There are great perks to volunteering. Whether you want to improve your CV, make new friends or just want to give something back, making the move to volunteer could be the best decision you ever make.
Head behind the scenes and find out what goes into running Castle Drogo or learn about our precious collections and the history of the house. While the interior of the house has changed many volunteer roles are the same.
Spend time in incredible surroundings, welcoming visitors to the castle and telling them stories about this magical place.
Viewing Tower volunteer
If you’ve got a head for heights this role is for you. These volunteers manage the viewing tower showing visitors the building work progressing on the roof below.
Our buggy drivers provide transport between visitor reception and the castle.
This role is suitable for those who would like to volunteer on more of an ad hoc basis. This could be helping at the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt or Edwardian country fair.
Volunteering is not only rewarding but also great fun. We have a wide range of social events for our volunteers to relax and get to know each other, from our Christmas and summer parties to quizzes and our day outings. We also have an extensive training menu, last year some of the training consisted of going to Blackenstone Quarry to learn more about where the granite that built Castle Drogo came from and a First World War seminar.
This is only a small selection of our volunteer roles. Get in touch with our Volunteer Coordinator, Alice Coombs on 01647 434114 or firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how you can get involved. Or you can search for opportunities here.
