Welcome to Urban Bees

Urban Beekeeping in LondonBees are one of nature's wonders. Bees pollinate the plants on their travels to collect their food and the honeybee makes honey for its winter food.

Bees do well in the city due to the variety of plants in the city’s parks, railway sidings and tree-lined roads and urban dwellers enjoy their delicious honey. Since honeybees are gentle creatures which eat only pollen and nectar they can, with careful planning and preparation, live side by side with you and your neighbours.

We encourage people and businesses to plant more pollinator friendly forage.
