Welcome to Hartlebury Castle's Volunteering Pages.
Due to the current Winter closure of the Castle from 1st September 2020 we will not be processing new volunteer applicants, unless applying for the Garden or Grounds management team. Please look back after Christmas.
Hartlebury Castle is a Grade 1 listed hidden gem that served as the Bishop of Worcester's residence for over 1,000 years. This magnificent building is home to the internationally significant Hurd Library, the Worcestershire County Museum and beautiful gardens and grounds.
Following major investment by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Hartlebury Castle re-launched in May 2018 as a new visitor attraction for Worcestershire.
Visitors can now explore rooms in the Castle never before open to the public, promenade along the reinstated Long Gallery, marvel at talking portraits, explore the historic grounds and unearth stories about the Castle and those who lived there.
The County Museum, which opened in the North Wing in 1966, remains an important part of the site, with stories and objects from Worcestershire's fascinating past featuring decorative arts, costumes and an outstanding transport collection including gypsy caravans.
