Volunteering at Kingston Lacy

Make new friends whilst volunteering for the National Trust

Last year Kingston Lacy welcomed record numbers of visitors and we are now developing ambitious plans for the years ahead. For this, we need your help. From room guides to catering volunteers and outdoor lovers; there is a place for you at Kingston Lacy.

Opening this special house and estate

In March each year, the house fully opens up to the public. To properly display all three floors of treasures we are looking for people to help with this special place.  The gardens and wider estate are open all year round.

Kingston Lacy currently has around 500 volunteers. Alex Shaw is one of these, and has been volunteering for the National Trust for five years. 

" I have made so many friends, met many different people, learnt a lot and become part of a great team. Having been self-employed for my whole life, it is lovely to do something different."
- Alex Shaw, Garden Guide

As a volunteer at Kingston Lacy you’ll have the opportunity to learn new skills, share your knowledge and enthusiasm with our visitors and enjoy a social calendar including a Summer garden party, Christmas drinks and the Spring Conference.
