Also the steps were very small on some parts so we were advised to... More

Went on the Greene King Brewery tour on Tuesday afternoon, the guide was brilliant, very informative, happy to answer any and all questions. The view from the top of the brewery must be the best in Bury. The best part of the tour however is the tasting which is saved until the end when you're taken to The Brewery Tap... More

The tour guide was excellent, & the information was very interesting. My favourite beer is Speckled Hen, so this was a visit just to see how my favourite beer is made!. My only problem is the tour is quite long over an hour & 20 minutes & very warm. The tasting at the end of the tour is nice, plenty... More

We took a trip to London, and went out of our way to visit this brewery since my husband loves their beers. I am so glad we did. The town itself is charming. We had a lovely walk from the train station to the brewery. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and hilarious. The tasting at the end was lovely,... More

4 curious male adults went for a family afternoon and had a great time. Informative, intersting and of course tasty. We had Susan as a guide and she was brilliant. She knew the nuts, bolts and hops of the place and was able to field any question thrown at her - from engineering to distilling. She was then a great... More

We went on the brewery tour and I have to say for anyone visiting the town or in fact living there this is a must. All of the guides are totally engaging throughout the whole experience and bring the history of the brewery and Bury St Edmunds to life. Thank you for a wonderful visit
