Welcome to Urban Bees.

Urban Beekeeping in LondonBees are one of nature's wonders. They pollinate plants as they collect their food and honeybees make delicious honey.

Bees do well in cities due to the variety of trees and flowers. They eat only pollen and nectar, and 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 trees and flowers.
