Become a park walk leader

Veterans of another Knole Park walk return to the house

One way you can help to support Knole is by volunteering to lead walks in the park. With 1,000 acres to explore, you can show visitors parts of Knole Park they have never seen before.

Our regular programme of guided walks take place in Knole Park on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 2pm to 2.45pm. Unlike some other types of volunteering at Knole, walk volunteering continues even during the winter months.

Special seasonal walks take place throughout the year to highlight changes in the park, such as the blossoming of spring flowers, the fawns being born in summer, and the deer rut in autumn. Longer distance walks can take groups to the heart of Sevenoaks or nearby National Trust properties.

Don’t worry if you can’t spare much time. You can help with a walk as often or as little as you like. Current volunteer walk leaders visit once a month, once a fortnight or weekly. It’s up to you.

" I love walking through the beautiful park with a group of friendly and interested people, watching the seasons change and how it affects the plants, trees, insects and animals that live here. "
