For my husband's special birthday, our son bought him (& included me!) a tour of Banks Brewery. The guide who took us round was a very pleasant & knowledgeable gentleman named Hugh, a retiree of the brewery. Hugh explained the process very clearly and made the whole tour very informative. At the end there is a very pleasant area where... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this trip. Bought as a present for my boyfriend who is a keen ale drinker and i went along without much interest in brewery's... However I found it all really interesting! The guide, Alex was really good, engaging, funny and informative. The trip lasted about 1.5 hours, which was the right amount of time. It also ended with... More

We did the tour on Saturday morning. It was well organised and very enjoyable. We were given a coffee to start and then taken on the tour which lasted about one and half hours. We were shown all the different processes of making the beer and our guide had a good sense of humour. It was quite warm going around... More

Visited yesterday 12/09/15 with my son and husband. Although I'm not a beer drinker (guess who was driving..) I thoroughly enjoyed the tour given by Bob, a man who had worked in the brewery from apprentice stage. I found it fascinating seeing the different stages of brewing and the yeasty mounds bubbling away. We were offered non alcoholic drinks when... More

Staff are so friendly and Bob, our guide and employee of 37 years, did an excellent job of showing us round and keeping everyone in our group interested. We shared our tour with a... More

Having spent all my adult life drinking Bank's beer I thought it was about time I found out how it was made Very interesting tour and well informed guide who had a good sense of humour My wife's a Londoner and had trouble with the local dialect but that just added to the fun Good tour and even better product
