We are looking to recruit a new team of volunteer tour guides to increase the content of our tours. If you are interested in Abney, or have knowledge of certain aspects of Abney Park we'd love to hear from you.

We’ll provide all the training and support you’ll need to become an Abney Park Tour Guide, and you’ll be able to help some of the 250,000 people who walk through the gates each year get the most from their visit.

No previous experience is required.

There are also options to work in the office (or from home) researching those buried at Abney Park.
