We have a fantastic team of staff and volunteers who are passionate about protecting and bringing to life our properties. There are a number of different ways you can support the work we do.


All of the income we raise from people visiting our properties, buying a gift or having a cup of tea is reinvested in the care, conservation and bringing back to life special places.


There are many different ways you can volunteer, from tour guiding to collection care, helping out at events, gardening, photography and blogging, for as much or as little time as you can afford. Learn more about our volunteering opportunities here.

If you would like to help for an hour, a day, or even more – just get in touch with the property nearest to you. We would be delighted to hear from you.
