This building is wonderful, it is so unique. Have never seen anything like it. Haigh's Chocolates are in this building, which is certainly worth a visit.

The Beehive Corner is a well-known landmark and meeting place in Adelaide. It was restored to its former glory in the 1990s, and certainly provides a visual break from the nondescript modern buildings around it. That said, I wouldn't go out of my way to see it unless you are an aficionado of Gothic revival architecture. Frankly, the main reason... More

It houses both Haigh's Chocolates which I recommend for everyone to see as well as a comic book store. For a building its age it is very well preserved and the brick work is in very good condition (better than many in the CBD in my opinion). Tram stop is literally outside Beehive Corner so its easy to get to.

An Adelaide icon and this interesting and unusual landmark has at Rundle Mall level one of Adelaide's other icons, Haigh's Chocolates. Incorporate a look at this building with a shopping trip. Do not drive a great distance just to see this alone, but when you are there pause for a moment from the end of Hindley Street. Look up at... More

Distinctive building with interesting architecture which has been well preserved. Worth taking the time to have a good look at from various angles.

It is a very distinctive building, amongst many high rises. Situated at the end of Rundle Mall, there is a Haigh's Chocolate store on the ground floor. Along with other reviews, it does stand out and is very well preserved, but, still is just a building.

We walk past it on every trip to Adelaide and you cant help but notice it and comment. Adelaide has so many beautiful older buildings but most of them you comment because of the stone unique to Adelaide. Here it is more the architecture with the stonework and gargoyle.

Walking along Rundle Mall, the Beehive Building is a feature that you cannot walk past without looking upwards. The building exhibits many features of Victorian architecture but the Turret with the Beehive on top and the Golden Bee at the summit is a joy to behold. The building may not be as famous as The Golden Gate Bridge in San... More

This building is so nice and it's in such a central location. It's fascinating - the architecture is beautiful, lovely stonework and the gargoyle is a bumble bee ... it's certainly unique and an easy landmark to get your bearings when you're still unfamiliar with the city streets. Very nice to see.

Beehive corner stands like a beacon at the intersection of Rundle, King William and Hindley Streets. It is a permanent reminder that Adelaide has class, style and of course history. If you were in any doubt then pop into Haighs Chocolate Shop for a sample of Australias (and possibly the worlds) best chocolate. Beehive Corner Building is what Adelaide is... More
