"We had a delightful time, lots of laughs and great memories were made. Would highly recommend Daniel as your tour guide when in Bath, England!!"
Customer Tripadvisor Testimonial
Due to the health & safety complexities of operating a tour in a working brewery - the brewery has yet to announce when they will be able to re-start their official brewery tours.
In the interim the brewery is offering a beer tasting session along with a short talk on the history of their brewery. These are currently being run on a Friday and a Saturday and are limited to 10 people. If you are interested in visiting Stonehenge and doing this beer tasting session afterwards please contact me so that I can check availability (please do not use the calendar on this page). You will return to Bath between 3 and 4pm. There is a reduced price for this tour if you would like to do this option.

STONEHENGE AND BREWERY TOUR DESCRIPTION
Stonehenge is on many people's list of places to visit in England and some people argue that you haven't truly experienced English culture until you have tasted a pint of beer. This tour allows you to experience both!
I will drive you to Stonehenge (just under 1 hour from Bath) and will guide you around the ancient stone circle to explain its history, why this particular location may have been chosen and the most recent archaeological findings. Built thousands of years ago the exact purpose of Stonehenge remains a mystery. Some believe it was a ceremonial place for the Land of the Dead, others believe it to be a site of great energy. At the end of our visit you can form your own opinion!
After exploring Stonehenge we will drive to a local English pub for lunch. After lunch we will visit the historic Wadworth Brewery.
The Wadworth Brewery is one of the oldest breweries in the region, dating back to 1875. It is the only brewery to have an onsite sign-writing workshop where skilled craftsmen make the signs that hang outside the brewery's 200+ pubs. It is also one of the few breweries to still deliver beer by horse and cart to pubs in the local vicinity.
You will join the public tour of their traditional Victorian tower brewery to learn about the different stages of the brewing process. The tour ends with a tasting session of their popular beers and the opportunity to buy some beer souvenirs before I drive you back to Bath.
This tour is available on weekdays only and starts at 8:30am. You will return to Bath around 5:30pm.
Pick-up is available from all Bath hotels and central locations in the city - such as the Bath Spa train station.
