Ightham Mote volunteer room guide

A man, with two children talking to a room guide

Our room guides provide vital support in bringing the house to life for our visitors, by engaging with them and helping them to learn about Ightham Mote’s past.

You’ll bring your enthusiasm to enable visitors to discover more by answering their questions, helping the children with their quizzes and pointing out items of interest. 

Our sessions run from 11am – 2pm, and 2pm - 5pm daily, or you can sign up for the whole day; however we do ask you to come at least once a fortnight. We won’t throw you in at the deep end though, as we’ll let you shadow more experienced guides to help equip you for your role.


What’s in it for you?

•    Becoming part of a friendly and dedicated team.
•    Meeting people from all walks of life and making new friends.
•    Improving your communication skills. 
•    Enjoying new experiences and learning something new every day.
