By an historical quirk, Greene King brewery has retained a major brewing facility in the middle of historic Bury St Edmunds. Quite how they do it has to be a question in the mind of anybody who takes the tour. This starts with a historic review - which is all the more relevant when you appreciate the neighbourhood. Then there... More

Wow what a tour! We had our tour on a murky Sunday, a little disappointed by the weather in anticipation of the roof viewings but were soon taken in by the amazing site that the weather was forgotten. Our tour guide Susan met us in the gift shop and left us to look around the museum area, which gave us... More

Fantastic tour all around the factory. Lasted a couple of hours with a taster session at a private bar to finish up. Maureen was a fantastic tour guide and really made the day

My friend and I wandered along to the brewery tour very recently and had a wonderful time. A potted history of the brewery and the area surrounding Bury, a good wander around the brewery itself explaining the process of how the beer is made and a taster session at the tap to finish up. Our guides Henry and Robin were... More

Myself and four friends did the tour on Saturday 25th April, and what a great tour it is. The guide was knowledgeable and fun, the tour was just the right length, and the beer tasting at the end was superb. It's great value to at only a tenner, and at the beer tasting you get to sample a good few... More

My now husband and I stumbled across this venue by chance having popped into the Greene King shop to buy some beverages. As we were getting married at The Atheneaum this seemed like the perfect venue to choose (a 5-10 min walk) and we are so pleased we did. If like us you would like somewhere intimate, unpretentious and relaxed... More

Came with friends at the weekend for a tour. Very informative but light hearted at the same time. Maureen really knows her stuff. We will definitely be doing the tour again but next time with the dinner package
