Attended the Halloween Tour, WOW this site has many stories hidden below the ground in the ancient tunnels that run under the buildings. The staff were fantastic, very knowledgable about both the brand and the site which is steeped in history and each one of them went all out to make the night scary, funny and factual. Excellent hospitality and... More

Went to the Cook School part of the Training Academy. Spent several hours in excellent facilities, with detailed and enjoyable teaching from the resident chef. Good value, particularly as I got it through an Itison deal. Would definitely recommend.

A great day out on a Sunday. We toured all around the brewery and learned about the history of Tennent's. I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the place and all of the different things they do in the Tennent's Training Academy. We had fun at the end in the T Bar. The tour guide was fantastic. A fun... More
