The Chain Bridge Honey Farm visitor centre was established in the early 1990s to allow the public to discover first-hand the extraordinary tale of bees and honey.
The comprehensive information found on the visitor centre walls was compiled by beekeeper and honey farm employee Ann Middleditch. There are sections on bees and bee behaviour, products of the beehive, including honey, wax and propolis, different types of bee as well as bumble bees and wasps and information on swarms. All the exhibits are handwritten by calligrapher Dorien Irving, and are themselves works of art.
A recent addition is our fabulous Beekeeper’s Garden which has been planted to attract bees, butterflies and other pollinators.
Why not take a walk to the Union Chain Bridge which was completed in 1820 and is a suspension bridge that spans the River Tweed and links England to Scotland.
To round off your visit take tea in the café situated in a double decker bus! Yes that’s right!
