My husband and I love visiting breweries whenever we're in a new city. We were torn between Fuller's or Meantime, but decided on Fuller's since it's the oldest brewery in London and we love London Pride. We loved it! It definitely focuses more on the educational side than the fun side though, so it's great for people passionate about beer.... More

I ordered a voucher in January for my dad's birthday so that he could book a tour for the two of us on a date that would suit him - as he is very busy. After trawling TripAdvisor I picked this tour due to all the good reviews. Unfortunately the voucher never arrived. I have been in contact with Fullers... More

Did the tour 23rd March. Tour guide was Lisa who was excellent passing on an informative and interesting couple of hours. Would recommend to beer lovers and would even consider doing it again (or is that the bar experience talking)?

Collin was our tour guide...To start we had a 2 o clock tour booked and totally misjudged our timing. Got there 20 minutes late. The staff were very accommodating and Collin let us join his 3 o clock which was very nice. He was very engaging, well versed, and funny. Even let us get behind the bar and pour our... More

For beer fans, this is well worth the short trip off the tourist trail. Very interesting and informative tour of the brewery - really learned something about beer making and distribution as well as the Fuller's company. Employees seemed proud of the history behind the brand. Plenty of time is allowed for the included beer tasting at the end -... More

Maybe not the typical tourist activity to do while being in London, I really enjoyed this tour which was both interesting and delicious, as you are able to taste different Fuller products at the end of the tour. The tour starts with a brief overview of the history of the brewery, before you enter the actual production site. You get... More

I've been a fan of Fuller's beer for a few years and been wanting to see where it's made for ages. We had a great time and Dave the tour guide was fantastic and very informative and also generous with the 'samples' at the end of the tour. We both left for our hotel in a very sozzled and happy...

A brewery tour at Fuller's is a great gift for a real ale fan who doesn't need more handkerchiefs etc. My friend and I started the day with Brewer's coffee in the Manson Arms where we met out guide David. It was a sunny day so we started off by the river before proceeding past the 200 year old wisteria... More

Been meaning to visit Fullers Brewery for a while and enjoyed it greatly. The tour guide Lisa was excellent, very friendly and informative throughout and we finished off trying some nice beers, some I haven't tried before which is rare for me. Would definately recommend this tour. A++
