- Children's Farms
Venue type: Outdoor
At Chain Bridge Honey Farm the visitor centre was established in the early 1990s to allow the public to discover first-hand the extraordinary tale of bees and honey. The displays and records are handmade, hand drawn and hand written in calligraphy so although it's informative it's also a really appealing little place that kids will enjoy the atmosphere of as well as learn from.
A most popular display is the observation hive where a living colony of bees can be viewed behind glass. You might watch these fascinating creatures for hours, particularly if you embark upon a quest for the queen! See the bees visibly bringing in pollen on their hind legs and performing quite captivating dances as they 'speak' to each other.
And after all that catch the bus for a cup of tea. Bear in mind the bus doesn't go anywhere, it's the tea shop, which also sells ice cream in what flavour? You guessed it: honey! A great treat for paying attention during the rest of it and learning all about bees!
