It’s a unique opportunity to see behind the scenes of a famous working brewery. Whether you’re looking for history and heritage, an insight into ale-making or just some superb samples, you’ll find them all here.
We run up to 20 tours each week, all led by expert guides who aim to answer all your questions and give you a fascinating glimpse into British beer-making history. The tour lasts around one and a half hours and culminates with the highlight: a tutored tasting of some of Fuller’s finest ales.
£12 tasting tour (£10.90 + £1.10 booking fee)
Our tours currently operate Mon-Fri only, at 11am, 12noon, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm. Sorry, but we do not currently run tours on weekends or public holidays.
Non-tasting tours are available on a bespoke basis for groups; please email any requests to email@example.com
Important information regarding brewer tours 24 October – 30 November
In late October we will be giving our Hock Cellar an impressive refurbishment. The Hock Cellar is an integral part of the tour and is where the tasting session takes place.
Our original plan was to close our gates to the public between Monday 24 October and Wednesday 30 November, whilst this refurbishment takes place. However, we don’t want to deprive our beer-loving fans of visiting our brewery. Instead, we will be operating a ‘skeleton’ brewery tour service. This means every other tour will be operating Monday to Friday, between these dates. The tours that will be running are; 11am 1pm and 3pm. These tours will cost £12 per person.
On Thursday 1 December 2016, the new and improved Hock Cellar will reopen as an interesting and interactive museum. Any bookings made for tours from this date will cost the new price of £20 per person.
Brewery tour vouchers that are purchased before 1 December, at £12, are valid for a year and therefore will still be valid when the tour price increases to £20. You lucky beer fans!
Tours must be booked online, where the booking module will allow for a maximum group size of 15. However, we can accommodate larger groups with plenty of notice – just give us a call on 020 8996 2000.
To redeem a voucher, please click on the ‘Book a Tour’ link above and follow the steps through to step 3. You will then be prompted to put in a voucher code. This code can be found at the top left of your voucher.
Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate children under the age of 16 years old. For tasting tours the minimum age is 18. No open-toe shoes are permitted in the brewery and long, flowing clothing should also be avoided.
Please note that the tour includes several flights of stairs and few places to sit down, so those with mobility issues may find the tour challenging.
Directions and parking
The closest tube station to the Griffin Brewery is Turnham Green, a 20-minute walk away. Turn left out of the station, then left again at Chiswick High Road. Walk along Chiswick High Road until you reach a Sainsbury’s Local, then cross the road at the traffic lights. Take Chiswick Lane and cross over to the park side – at the end of the road you’ll see a subway that brings you up outside the brewery.
If you’re planning to drive, please note that parking around the brewery site is limited, though there are a few parking meters in Chiswick Lane South.
Right next door to the brewery, and indeed the starting point for the tour, is The Mawson Arms. Why not extend your visit to Fuller’s by enjoying a fantastic lunch in this traditional English pub? Make a booking here.
