Led by our experienced Tour Guides, you will be immersed in all things Adnams and given an insight into what makes our brews so special. Due to the current restrictions, we have had to change our regular tours. You will get a slightly different experience, depending on the day you decide to visit.

Unfortunately, during working hours on Monday to Friday, we are currently only allowed a quick look inside the brewery. We have restricted access to see inside the vessels, but other areas are not accessible. It is currently just too busy to maintain social distancing while the team is working.

At the weekend, and on any out of hours tours we add to the schedule, we will have access to the rest of the brewhouse and we will visit areas considered appropriate for groups. Fermentation is still restricted at weekends as we are unable to navigate this area and maintain social distancing.

The good news is that any shorter ‘tour’ will be balanced by an extended tasting of Adnams beers and all experiences remain 1.5 hours in length. So…

  • During the week, we are offering an external history walk, then a quick look inside the main brewhouse vessels, followed by a detailed tutored tasting and explanation of the brewing process in our Tours Centre.

  • At the weekend, we are offering a shortened tour through the building and a tutored tasting in our Tours Centre.


Please note:

  • All customers will be required to bring their own face mask, to be used when you are not tasting.

  • To help increase the space for our tastings, they have been moved to the mezzanine level of our Tours Centre. This area is accessed via a spiral staircase. If you have reduced mobility and feel this might be difficult for you, please telephone to make your booking so we can make the necessary arrangements and advise you on your visit.

  • The brewery itself is partially accessible on the ground floor. Customers in wheelchairs (or small mobility scooters) are eligible for a concession as they may be unable to access certain areas on the tour. Please call 01502 727225 for details, advice and to discuss your requirements.

  • Adnams Tours now have a minimum attendance policy. We will look to run tours with at least five places filled and may have to cancel tours that do not reach this number. Under these circumstances we will endeavour to move you to an alternative, viable tour if possible.
