Hidden Charlecote… your chance to get behind the scenes!

During the winter months, when the house is on its reduced opening for its deep clean, we’re looking to run some special tours for our visitors. These tours will show the ‘hidden’ parts of our place. Rooms and areas not normally open through the year. We will be running these tours with members of our volunteer team, however we need more!

Have you a hankering to delve into the past? Does our special place fascinate and excite you? Do you enjoy talking to people? Would you like to lead a tour at Charlecote?

We’re building up our team of guides and this is a great time to join us!

Don’t be put off!
Don’t be put off if you’re thinking ‘I don’t know enough about the house’ or ‘I haven’t volunteered here before’, that doesn’t matter as training will be provided. The key thing is that you enjoy communicating with people and sharing Charlecote with them. We’ve some training days scheduled for September and October with one of our regional managers. At these training sessions we will put the content of the tours together as a group, everyone will have a chance to influence what goes into the tours and how they are run, and we will also look at what makes a good guided tour.
