Chain Bridge Honey Farm

Food & Drink Attraction

Horncliffe, Berwick-upon-tweed, Northumberland, TD15 2XT

    Chain Bridge Honey Farm Visitor Centre offers a fascinating insight into the lifecycle of the honeybee.

    Our museum is buzzing with information relating to every aspect of bees, honey and beekeeping. You can see the bees at work in a special glass observation hive, learn all about the bee with no sting and try for yourself some of our honey and beeswax healing ointments, luxury cosmetics and polish - and of course you can try our delicious honey. Every wall of the museum has been hand painted with stunning murals, including a panoramic scene of the entire Tweed valley. Other attractions include a vintage vehicle museum and cafe in a vintage double decker bus. A walk to the nearby Union Chain Bridge is also recommended
