We run up to 20 tours each week, all led by expert guides who aim to answer all your questions and give you a fascinating glimpse into British beer-making history. The tour lasts around one and a half hours and culminates with the highlight: a tutored tasting of some of Fuller’s finest ales.

Visited the brewery last Friday and really enjoyed the tour and the beers. We started off in the brewery tap next door with a spot of lunch and a couple of pints before Lisa, our guide, took us round. Lisa was very friendly and made the whole tour a pleasure with her in-depth knowledge and stories. She explained each stage of the brewing process in an easy manner and was always asking if anyone had any questions. By the time we reached the Hock cellar we were ready to sample the full range of beers on offer. The cellar area is packed with more history on the the brewery which made for a great end to a great afternoon.

Had a great time being shown around the brewery by Jill, finding out about the history and the engineering parts of the brewery. Nice to see some of the old equipment next to the modern equipment. Good beer tasting at the end, with lots of different beer to try, and great guidance. Really glad we got the train and didn't drive there. Also had a nice lunch in the brewery pub before going on the tour.

Absolutely fantastic value for money tour. Jane was our tour guide who led us through the brewing process. Her knowledge was sound and her enthusiasm for beer indisputable. Thank you Jane.

Enjoyable and informative tour around a brewey with great tradition. Great if you want to know the technicalities of brewing or just want to see how it operates. We had an informative and entertaining tour guide, Jill, and learned much about the production and distribution of their different beers. This brewery is 'the real deal' and takes great pride in their creations and their business. The tasting session after the tour is fabulous and even as a wine drinker and not a beer drinker, I enjoyed sampling the many different varieties (and combinations of varieties) that Fuller's had to offer. Hello Golden Pride - what a discovery!
Wear comfortable shoes (walking up and down industrial-type stairs) and don't plan on driving afterwards!!! Gift shop available for beer mats, towels, mugs and beer!
