  • I give these Bees an A! Get it? Because they're brilliant. I love bees.
  • Loads of info and the chance to see bees doing what they do. Really friendly staff and a great place to visit.
  • We turned up full of hope that this might be an interesting way to spend an hour given the bad weather, but looking back, I would have rather stood out in the rain. You wander in through the gift shop and to the foot of a staircase guarded by an 8 year old ready to charge you money in exchange for a sticker and safe passage up the stairs. As I made my way up the stairs, I clung to the hope that my £2.50 was not wasted, but was greeted with a gloomy looking canteen and a mysterious door leading to the bees. What I found in this darkened room was that instead of something interesting, there was a VHS video from the 1970s on loop featuring a man in short shorts playing with bees. At the back of the room were several bee enclosures featuring live bees. To see the bees you need to press a button to light up the enclosure which only serves to annoy the bees and also reveal the fact that there are more dead bees on the floor on the enclosure than there are live bees. Got to be a contender for worst tourist attraction in Cornwall, possibly UK.
