Volunteer Guides

Guides work at the Ship Centre meeting and taking visitors around the displays. Their role is to inform and inspire our visitors about the Ship, its discovery and history.

This role may suit someone who enjoys interacting with the general public and has an interest in medieval history and the Newport Ship.

Prior knowledge of the Ship and nautical archaeology are not essential, just a willingness to learn. New guides are given training by buddying with and mentoring from an experienced guide, organised by the lead volunteer.

The Ship Centre is open to the public Fridays, Saturdays and Bank Holiday Mondays during the season, which is March to end of October.   We also run tours, by arrangement, of the Ship Centre for groups during the week and in the evening.

If you are interested or would like further information please contact Chair of the Friends via our contact us form).

We would love to have you on board!
