Established in 1875, this independent family owned brewery is steeped in history, heritage & traditional skills, as well as a wide collection of carefully hand crafted ales. With an on-site Sample Bar, Brewery Shop & Visitor Centre, there's certainly much more to Wadworth - a visit to see our Shire Horses, who deliver our ales across town each week day, is highly recommended! The Visitor Centre is FREE admission, however fees apply to our guided tours.

Scheduled tours are available daily at 11am & 2pm, catering for up to 60 people, prices start from £9.00pp. Brewery Tours include a visit to the main production areas, our on-site Sign Studio; where guests can gaze at our unique hand painted pub signs, followed by a visit to the Stables, finishing with a tutored beer sampling session. Our Visitor Centre & Brewery Shop is open each week day from 10am-5pm (except bank holidays), and is always well stocked with your favourite Wadworth ales and gifts.

The size of the place (large brewery but not a mega-factory) and the architecture of the building make this an interesting and diverting trip. It's not quite as good now the cooper has gone, but the tour of the brewing process & facilities are professionally handled.

Accidently managed to get on a tour due to a group cancelling. I didn't realise this place was 'that' popular, and to my surprise I now know why! If you don't want to be disappointed on the day of seeing this place then I would recommend booking especially if you have a group visiting. I will be honest I'm not... More

The visitor centre is a free attraction where you can read the history of the brewery on a timeline display, sample the beers. Play old fashioned pub games and buy branded merchandise. The full brewery tour is at a cost, but is well worth doing. Really interesting and you get to see all aspects of the industry, including the dray... More

Thank you for your email. Unfortunately, Wadworth haven't had a Cooperage for over 4 years now, so it must have been a while since you visited us. That said, our award winning tours are well worth a re-visit, there is something new happening all of the time & the brewery has changed quite a bit by the sounds of your... More

My husband and myself, also another couple, went on the Brewery Tour, it was very interesting, seeing how the beer brews and where the hops start off. The only down side to the tour was there was a lot of stairs and steps. Our friend has dodgy legs, so he certainly knew he had climbed flights of steps. But near... More

We called into the brewery as we had parked nearby - we would have probably taken a tour but there were no spaces available. Good little visitor center which is free to look around with some historical documents and artifacts

As a birthday present I was taken to the Waddy's Brewery Centre for a tour of the premises and a beer tasting session. Great fun for a CAMRA member! The guide was most informative and ably answered everyone's questions while bringing the business of brewing beer to life. The sign painting studio and heavy horse stables were also great. The...

Originated in 1875 this tour covers old and new engineering and brewing methods. Tour guides always jolly and knowledgeable. Visitors travel up through the numerous floors of the brewery building with information being given on what happens in each area, also some superb views out over the town of Devizes in particular the market square.
