Book a Tour

If you’ve ever wanted to know what makes Fuller’s ales taste so good, you’ll discover the secrets of our success on a tour of the Griffin Brewery.

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.

Tour booking information
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.

Restrictions
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.

Lunch
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.
