In this hour and a half experience you’ll get a glimpse into the world of bees with the help of your host Alyson, a beekeeper who looks after several hives of honey bees in and around Bristol.

About Hives and Herbals

Whilst away at a festival Alyson got stuck into some natural workshops and particularly enjoyed foraging and making her own natural lotions and potions. This, along with her love of gardening and a newfound interest in beekeeping, was the beginning of Hives and Herbals. Alyson now produces a range of products using honey, beeswax and propolis, as well as offering amazing beehive encounters. Hives and Herbals bee experiences are ideal for people of all ages, from preschoolers to pensioners, and are perfect for anyone interested in getting closer to bees in their hive in a safe, relaxed environment.

We had a wonderful time learning all about bees with Alyson! Such a great host who made sure we felt comfortable every step of the way when we were exploring the hives. Thanks so much for such a brilliant experience :)

We had an absolutely fantastic time! A lot of information about bees and the host was lovely. My daughter now wants to be a beekeeper when she gets older.
