My son bought me a tour of Fuller's Brewery for Christmas and he and I took the tour last Friday afternoon.

Spent a fantastic morning here with my brother.Martin the guide was very good and knew alot about the history of Fuller's. He was better behind the bar,telling stories and jokes about the past.Beautiful setting on the Thames and the Mawson Arms is a good starting and ending point of the tour.Will be back again for some more...great stuff.

Very interesting brewery and great to see some of the old equipment that used to be used. There was no brewing taking place when we were there which was a shame but it didn't distract from learning about the art of brewing, The tasting at the end was great with a good selection of the different beers readily available and...

Thanks to tour guide, Dave, my knowledge and appreciation for my favorite brews has vastly increased. A very informative and humorous 60 minute tour followed by about a 30 minute tasting was the perfect way to start my day. Definitely worth the time and money to learn for yourself why Fullers is the greatest family owned brewery in the world.

A group of 10 had the pleasure of visiting the Griffin Brewery between Christmas and New Year and what a laugh we had. Alice, our witty and learned tour guide, was a wonderful host and was very patient and knowledgeable in the face of all our questions. We really liked the interactive parts of the tour, smelling the hops etc.... More

Visited the brewery in December 2016 and was amazed by how much history is behind the Fullers brand. Dave, our tour guide was fantastic and provided an insightful and charming story behind the family business that still makes all its beer on the original site. Chiswick is a great area to walk around too. The gift shop is also a... More

Just finished a brilliant tour of the Fullers brewery for my dad's birthday. Very enjoyable trip with Dave the tour guide who gave us a fantastic insight into the history of the brewery and the process that goes into beer making.

We visited here for my Husbands birthday. Had a great tour guide called Dave who was very humorous and engaged the whole group . Very knowledgable and welcoming. Really enjoyable trip well worth the money. Went to the Mawson Arm for food after which was an equally as welcoming venue. Would very much recommend this trip

As local - living in Putney a few miles away - I finally roped in some friends to join me on the tour. Other friends recommended it and I can now see why. While there are plenty of stairs to negotiate you're taken right in amongst the vats and inner workings of the brewery. The guides are very knowledgeable -... More

If you're contemplating going on a tour at this location, don't hesitate to book it. It is absolutely amazing. If you're into beer (or even if you aren't) it's well worth a visit. And at the end of it, you get to taste as much as you can. Our tour guide Colin knew his stuff, he was full of information... More
