Take a closer look at our bees!
Join our Education Team in the Bee Shed to get a fascinating behind-the-scenes look in a beehive.
During the spring and summer months, when the bees are active, your host will suit up and go into the booth that is surrounded by protective glass and open up a hive of bees right before your eyes! They will use a smoker and a hive tool and lift out a frame of bees, explaining everything as they go to show you the inner workings of a hive in complete safety. Will you spot the queen bee?
In late autumn and winter, the bees become dormant so we keep the hives shut to allow them to rest. However, if you visit during this time, you will still be in for a treat. We will show you incredible video footage of the opening of a hive, with lots of fascinating facts and information about honeybees.
