Welcome to Urban Bees

Urban Beekeeping in LondonBees are one of nature's wonders. Over 250 different UK bee species pollinate plants as they collect their food and only the honeybee make delicious honey.

Bees may do well in cities due to the variety of trees and flowers. They eat only pollen and nectar obtained from the plants. So we encourage people and businesses to plant more pollinator-friendly trees and flowers.

Our new book 'The Good Bee' is available now. You can buy a signed copy from us or it is available at all the usual booksellers.
