The Hive

Princesshay’s new educational space, The Hive, is now open and it’s buzzing with activity.

The Hive is dedicated to our Rooftop Garden and the Honeybees that live there. The Rooftop Garden was built above the Centre in 2012 and while you can book a tour to visit the garden during spring and summer, the garden is not visible at ground level where people shop.Created as part of our ongoing commitment to sustainability, The Hive enables visitors to observe the activity inside a real beehive in an engaging way to help children to understand the importance of bees and other pollinators.

The Hive is open daily from 10am-4pm and can be found in Bampfylde Lane between Superdry and Chandos Deli.

If you are interested in a tour for a school or group, or would like to volunteer to be a Princesshay beekeeper, contact the Centre Management team on: 01392 456548.
