Group visit to National Collection of Humulus in Faversham

Visit starts at 11am, Join us for lunch at The Albion in Faversham from 1.30.

Please join us on this exclusive visit to see the National Plant Collection of hops in Faversham. Vital to brewing and at risk from disease, you will be fascinated by the knowledge of our host, Peter Darby. If you are interested in plants, beer and conservation, then this is the event for you.

The visit will undoubtedly make you both peckish and very thirsty; so join us at the Albion in Faversham afterwards (we are leaving food & drink bookings and payments up to you), for an in-depth, but tongue-in-cheek appreciation of hops!
