Our tour guide Lisa knew her stuff. Not just brewing facts but interesting historical references to Fuller's and the history of English brewing. Well worth a visit - and sampling at the end was very welcome.

This was my 4th visit in 2 years, this time with a friend from NSW. There’s so much to like, how they brew beer, the knowledgable tour guides and then 30 mins in the bar sampling their wonderful ales. Highly recommended.
