What you'll do

How close have you been to a beehive? Here’s your chance to join The Bee Lady for a hive inspection and 'bee a beekeeper'.

You'll get up close and personal with the bees in a safe, relaxed environment as you look inside the hive and discover more about the lives of the bees. Together you’ll make sure everything is as it should be, doing everything a beekeeper would do in a usual hive check.

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.

How to get there

What people are saying

We had a wonderful afternoon with Alyson doing a Bee a Beekeeper experience. It was great fun donning the beekeeper suits & also incredibly educational - I learnt a lot about bees, they are truly fascinating! Alyson was a fantastic teacher and was very friendly, interesting and informative throughout. She made sure that we asked any questions we had and told some great stories. It special to get so close to bees and see inside the hive. Would definitely recommend.

Really relaxed and informative session. Small group so everyone was able to actively participate as fully as they wished. Great learning environment where we could ask as many questions as we wanted and it was nicely interactive. Would absolutely recommend to anyone wanting to understand more about bees and the workings of a hive.
