Princesshay City Bee and Rooftop Garden Tours

About

Princesshay are inviting you to explore their hidden oasis for insects and plant life, giving access to the Princesshay Bee garden through tours from May to September.

12 years ago, the team at Princesshay created a rooftop bee friendly garden high above the shops as a sanctuary for honeybees. Over the last decade the space has matured and grown and the team tend weekly to the three - four bee hives (depending on the time of year) housing over 240,000 honeybees.

The tour will start at ground level outside 'The Hive' on Bampfylde Lane before heading up to the rooftop to visit the garden space and see the beehives. The hives will be observed at a safe distance and will not be opened during these visits.

On the tour, visitors will get to learn more about the Princesshay City Bee Project and see the bees in action through glass panels in the observation hive.

The event is open to all ages. Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult. Unfortunately, the rooftop space is not accessible for visitors with mobility issues due to steps and uneven surfaces on the rooftop. Capacity will be limited to 20 people per tour.

Please note to arrange a group booking or school tour, email the team at marketing@princesshay.co.uk
