Volunteer at Pendennis Castle

In 2018, Pendennis Castle is launching a new interpretation programme, helping visitors to get the best out of their day and explore more elements of the Pendennis story.

Tour Guide and visitors

To support this programme, we are recruiting a team of volunteers, including a Gun Team, who will play an integral part in telling the story of Pendennis Castle's rich military past through its incredible collection of artillery. There are a range of opportunities that you can get involved in from leading inspiring tours and showing how our guns would have operated to being part of the office team supporting the new project.

If you have some spare time, are great with people and would relish the opportunity to get involved in an exciting retelling of history - this is the opportunity for you.

As an English Heritage volunteer you can:

  • Indulge your passion
  • Engage with local heritage, helping it become part of the local community and landscape
  • Meet new people
  • Be part of a friendly team
  • Learn new skills
  • Gain valuable experience to add to your CV or just as part of who you are

We will provide:

  • Training and support
  • All of the things you need to make your gift of time an enjoyable one
  • A uniform or costume
  • Tea and coffee
  • Travel expenses to and from Pendennis Castle
