Get involved: we’re looking for volunteers to help our visitors feel at home

The last visitors of the year have been and gone, but there’s still plenty going on at Wordsworth House and Garden.

Over the winter, our expert builders and carpenters will be creating two exciting new exhibition spaces – in the main house and former reception area – to be unveiled when we reopen on 12 March.

One will house a special exhibition of original drawings by Beatrix Potter, to celebrate her 150th anniversary; the other will be home to a permanent exhibition about William’s adult life and legacy.

Volunteers play a crucial part in helping visitors get the most out of their time at his childhood home, so if you like meeting people and have a few hours a week to spare, why not join the team?

We’re looking for volunteers to:

  • welcome and orientate visitors
  • help them enjoy our exhibitions
  • lead 30-minute taster tours
  • play our harpsichord
  • act as room guides
  • serve and clear tables in the café.

You don’t need any special skills or knowledge, as we give full training and support. You just need a friendly, chatty manner. Email us at wordsworthhouse@nationaltrust.org.uk to find out more.
