As a Volunteer Buggy Driver you will play a crucial role in helping visitors at Stowe. This is a fantastic role if you like talking to people and being outside.

Brilliant customer service is at the heart of Stowe House and the Volunteer Buggy Drivers help visitors to discover more about Stowe and leave them feeling inspired.

You will be helping visitors to feel welcome during a scenic trip through the gardens on their journey to the greatest temple, Stowe House.

You will work alongside the wider Visitor Services team to ensure the visitor experience meets the usual high standards. You will also be on hand to assist visitors throughout their visit and helping to support the Visitor Services team in the day to day running of Stowe House.

Duties include:

  • Driving a buggy through the gardens of National Trust Stowe, providing a shuttle between the National Trust's Bell Gate, the entrance to the gardens, and the House.

  • Taking care of the people who use your buggy, making sure their journey to and from the House is as smooth and safe as possible.

  • Providing a brilliant visitor experience; being proactive and approachable with the visitors' experience in mind.
  • Being informative and knowledgeable when answering visitors' questions about Stowe House.


This role would suit someone who has an outgoing personality and who enjoys talking and interacting with the public, and enjoys being outside, even when it's a bit chilly!
