Bee Discovery centre

The Discovery Centre comprises an exhibition on honeybees, a bee-friendly garden, an observation bee-hive and apiary and an outdoors shelter for activities such as flower pressing, honey-tasting, candle making and utilisation of teaching aids. Our hosts give talks on the honey bee (habitat, life cycle, plant pollination, nectar collection, honey production) with reference to what bees need to survive in the modern world and how important they are to ensuring mankind's own food supply. A Courtyard with tables provide an outdoor classroom and a place to picnic.

We host visits to the BuzzWorks Discovery Centre from local schools, youth organisations (e.g. Rainbows, Brownies, Beavers and Cubs) and other youth and adult community groups.

This fully accessible site is situated on the edge of the Old Hale Way Allotments and is open to the public on selected days between May and September:
