my husband and I did the tour last Thursday and it was great. The guide Maureen was excellent, very informative and friendly. The view over Bury was stunning. The tasting at the end of the tour was the cherry on the cake! Highly recommend this tour to anyone, but fit enough to get up the stairs!

I went on the Greene King tour with a family friend. The tour itself lasted a little over an hour and then we got to taste a few beers. It was a great tour that offered excellent views of the city from the rooftop. I would recommend the tour just for the views and the tasting session. The tour of... More

Having visited The Heineken and Guinness breweries, I wasn't expecting much as the tour is pretty cheap! I was definitely wrong. The Green king tour is much more personal as you're taken around in a small group. I learned much more about the brewing process than before and our guide Maureen was fabulous, so friendly and engaging! At the end... More

This was my first brewery tour and I had an excellent time. Maureen our guide was fun, informative and what she doesn't know about brewing beer isn't worth knowing! Thank you to the Brewery for a brilliant couple of hours, and for the beer tasting at the end!! Superb.

I brought the tour for my partner for Christmas (just gone) and went today! I'm not a fan of beer but I had an awesome time. My partner had a fab time. The tour of the brewery was awesome, not to be done if your wary of heights or lots of stairs but is worth it! The best bit.... Finishing... More

Many thanks to Maureen for a fun and educational tour of the brewery, even if it was a bit chilly up on the roof!

We only had time for a brief visit to the shop and the display area. Folk in the shop were very friendly and helpful - very welcoming. We didn't manage to do a full brewery tour this time, but will definitely aim to do that on a future visit, since clearly this comes highly recommended by others in the Trip... More

The tour takes you in and around the Greene King Brewery. There are lots of things to look at and see, as it is a working brewery. The guide was very knowledgeable and was good at answering any questions asked. The tour finishes in the pub, it could do with being a bit shorter so you get there quicker! Once... More
