Try Our Award-Winning "Bee Experience"

If you are feeling adventurous you can book onto one of our award-winning ‘Bee Experiences’. These events last for approximately 90 minutes. You will receive an introduction to honeybees and beekeeping from one of our experienced beekeepers, after which you will be able to put on one of our beekeeping suits and get ‘up close and personal’ with our bees.

Our bee experiences also make a great present for Christmas, birthdays or special events. Vouchers can be purchased from our online shop or in store.

Bee Experiences are run from March through to October at the bee and heritage centre, on the Samlesbury Hall estate near Preston. We are 5 minutes from J31 of the M6. The facility includes a large indoor visitor centre and classroom area alongside our outdoor apiaries and half acre pollinator garden.
