House Tour Guides
Swarthmoor Hall, Cumbria
Voluntary, travel expenses paid
Swarthmoor Hall is a historic house known as the ‘cradle of Quakerism’. The house is open to the public four afternoons a week throughout the year and for group tours at other times by appointment. We are looking for Friends who live within travelling distance of the Hall who are interested in acting as tour guides. We do not necessarily need a regular commitment of hours. We do hope to develop a pool of volunteers who we will train as tour guides for our visitors both adults and children.
