For those who would like a more in-depth introduction to BedZED, each month we offer a guided tour, led by a member of staff from BioRegional – BedZED’s co-developers and sustainability experts.
Our tours are aimed at industry professionals. To avoid disruption to local residents we cannot offer tours to groups larger than 20 people.
Please note there is a maximum group size of 20 people.
Tour length: 1.5 hours (depending on the number of questions).
When: Tours are normally held on the last Thursday of the month, in the morning. The tour booking page shows all available tours. We are sorry that we cannot offer tours on other dates, as costs do not allow it.
Each tour includes time spent walking around the BedZED site, a short film which looks at all the energy saving features of an individual home and refreshments. We look at the green lifestyles strategies; how we have reduced the ecological footprint of waste, transport emissions and food. We also look at the strategies for reducing energy and water consumption, generating energy on site, and collecting and recycling water. Please note the tour does not currently include a tour inside one of the homes at BedZED.
Cost: £16 per person, or £10 for concessions (students, pensioners and those who are on benefits). All bookings should be made online, using the link below.
A presentation by a senior architect from ZEDfactory can be arranged for an additional £250 per group. Please contact us for more information on 020 8404 4880.
Wheelchair accessibility: The BedZED site is wheelchair accessible.
