St Ermin's Hotel

Harvest time at the St Ermin’s Hotel and the hard work of their 300,000 rooftop Buckfast bees is rewarded with honey-themed menus and cocktails throughout September.

And, for the first time, the celebrated St Ermon’s hotel is offering a series of urban bee-keeping workshops hosted by bee guru Camilla Goddard of Capital Bee.

The ‘Bees in the Burbs’ taster workshops run at 2.30pm every Tuesday afternoon through September and cover bee basics; keeping, handling, safety, feeding and beehaviour, with introductory notes and planting list, a pot of St Ermin’s Honey plus a honey cream tea or honey-themed cocktail. Camilla Goddard believes it is vitally important that as many people as possible try to support honey bees, “choice of planting can have a positive impact and urban environments can be very attractive to colonies. By keeping just one hive you immediately introduce 50,000 pollinators into an urban area and that has a huge impact on the environment.”
