Take a look behind the scenes at Shepherd Neame – Britain’s oldest brewer. You guide will take you through the heart of the brewery so you can see the traditional mash tuns; taste natural mineral water from the brewery’s well; try some malted barley; smell locally-grown Kentish hops; see bygone delivery vehicles and step into a recreated cooper’s workshop. Finally there’s a fascinating tutored tasting of Shepherd Neame’s Kentish ales and speciality lagers. Tours run most days - advance booking is strongly recommended and you should allow 2 hours for your visit

A great tour with a friendly, humorous & knowledgeable tour guide. A little more expensive than some other brewery tours, but a good visit nonetheless. A good excuse to visit Faversham for the day.

Excellent visit, interesting and informative. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and answered our questions very well. The visitor centre was very welcoming and the beer tasting was first class There could perhaps be some on-site parking facilities for visitors.

We had an excellent time at the brewery. Our tour guide was very knowledgable about the history of the brewery and the group interested. We learnt a lot about the brewing process and also at the tastings at the end of the tour.
