Meet the Bees


Join us to welcome John Beavan and his bees to the Chirk Castle estate. John is an experienced beekeeper who lives locally and will be keeping several hives on the estate as well as offering some beekeeping themed experiences for visitors.

During this approximately 45 minute experience you will learn about keeping bees from John, get dressed up in your own bee suit, have a look at some of the tools of the trade and then go for a walk to open his hives and meet the bees.
