Did you know that the Ham Yard Hotel, situated in swanky Mayfair, has two bee hives in their garden? Read more about how they're supporting the bees.

Where did your idea of bee keeping on the terrace originate from?

The decline of the bee population is very real and we have the perfect space to do our bit in helping reverse this. The bee hives are placed to the rear of the garden and they are tended to by our dedicated bee keeper, Camilla. We employ eco friendly methods for bee management and hive maintenance.

What else do you do to support bees?

We ensure that the roof terrace garden is filled with plants that bees like. Due to demand from our guests we've started a series of informative talks with our resident bee keeper, Camilla Goddard.

What do you use the honey for?

The honey produced gets used on the hotel's breakfast buffet, cocktails at our bar and as honey gifts for guests.

Would you look to have bee hives at more of your hotels?

Yes absolutely, if we have suitable space for them.
