Tour guides are a valuable source of information and history. The tour guides provide visitors with a solid understanding of how the site came to be, what it is now and how they can get involved.

    This role is great for history buffs and people who are comfortable speaking to crowds and those they don’t know. As a tour guide, you will lead groups of people through areas that are normally unseen by the public and inform them of the past, present and future uses of the rooms and buildings. Living memories have been collected from people who have had a strong connection with the Convent, such as some of the Sisters and women who used to live here. These stories underpin the tour guide script.

    Required skills:

    • Ability to memorise and recall the script
    • A loud voice!

    Time commitment:

    • Minimum one day a month, two hours per tour
