Tours generally take place once every quarter, on Thursdays towards the end of the month at 11am. Please visit our Eventbrite page for all upcoming tour dates.

Please note that to minimise disruption for BedZED residents we are not able to offer tours to groups larger than 25 people.

£20 for full price tickets, or £14 for concessions (students, pensioners and those who are on benefits).
