The Honeybee Centre’s Bees & Bugs Lab teaches visitors about insects and arthropods with myriad hands-on exhibits. Live bees and other invertebrates offer a fascinating look at how the creatures live and eat. On the way out, each visitor receives a free honey stick to enjoy. The lab is open on Saturdays and Sundays and on statutory holidays. Children aged 3 and younger are admitted for free.

Honeybee Centre

Honeybee Centre buzzes with professional apiarists and busy hives, which work together to support Surrey's agriculture and inform the next generation of beekeepers. Most of the staff's time is spent renting out hives to pollinate fruit crops, then harvesting the resulting honey⎯whether from blueberry, cherry, or pumpkin plants⎯to sell in their store. The insect experts also provide an extermination alternative by removing and relocating pesky colonies of bees and wasps.

Additionally, the centre devotes significant resources to education, whether through kid-friendly exhibits or basic to advanced beekeeping courses, which help students manage their own hives and join in the bees' ritual dances. In the Bees & Bugs lab, kids of all ages tackle hands-on educational activities and watch live bees and other bugs. Afterwards, visitors can relax in the centre's Tea Hive Café, noshing on cookies or pie while sipping locally roasted coffee in a greenhouse.

    “The day we went the Honeybee centre wasn't actually open for any tours so they sent us down to the animal rescue refuge centre, about a 10 min. Drive down the road. They had a wonderful selection of animals that had been pets at one time & had been either abandoned or dropped off because the owners couldn't/didn't want to look after them anymore. The 4&6 yr. load that I took were fascinated with the animals & the insect collection. We ended up spending almost 2 hrs there! Well worth while & they accepted the groupon.”
