The social event for British apiarists and honey enthusiasts, the National Honey Show is a competitive exhibition of fine honey and other hive products, including waxes, candles, crafts and confectionery. Honey-loving visitors zoom to St George's College in Weybridge.
The first National Show of Bees and Honey was held in 1923 at the Crystal Palace. Developed over eight decades into the must-attend event for British and international beekeepers, the weekend climaxes with the awards ceremony, where the biggest names in the bee world pit their wits against each other to see who has the best honey in Britain.
Whether you're a beekeeper or honey fiend, there's always something to buy, from fumigators to beeswax polish for your Georgian footstool, mead and Honey Madeira Cakes for the peckish.
By car: Just off the M25 at junction 11.
By bus: The bus from Heathrow to Woking passes the College gates. There are also local buses connecting with Weybridge.
By train: There are at least 4 trains per hour from London Waterloo either directly via Staines or with one change via Weybridge to Addlestone station (a 10 minute walk from the college). Main line services from the South West and West connect through Weybridge.
