We’re sorry, this experience is not able to go ahead right now.
Due to the current lockdown measures, this experience is unable to take place between Thursday 4 November and Tuesday 2 December.
Every booking - regardless of when this takes place, will play a part in helping our local businesses to survive this challenging time and help them bounce back when we are able to visit them in person again.
Book something to look forward to or gift to someone special for when lockdown is over, or to celebrate a brand new year!
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 two hour 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.
All beesuits washed after each experience
You'll be provided with a beekeeping suit and everything you need for your experience on the day
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.View more experiences by Hives and Herbals
