Walk into the courtyard to admire the Victorian architecture and stroll around the distillery, stopping at the interactive audio points. Learn about the history of the area, of gin in general, and of Bombay Sapphire in particular. 

Visit the twin greenhouses that contain live samples of the 10 botanicals found in the world-famous gin. In the Botanical Dry Room, smell and taste dried examples of these signature botanicals; choose your favorite to help inform your choice of cocktail later. 

Go behind the scenes in the Dakin Still House, listening to your host explain the vapor infusion process.

Worth every penny.

Our tour guide, Naomi, was exceptional. Having done it a few years ago it was refreshing to come and it to have changed. The making your own G&T at the beginning was a great touch. If you are allergic to wasps though, wear repellant as they were rife on the visit.
Interesting place to visit

Very interesting place. The guide was a little rushed in her presentation. The cafe was overpriced. The cocktail bar was very good and the staff were friendly and very knowledgeable on cocktails.
Well worth a visit especially if you...

Well worth a visit especially if you are a gin lover. Our tour was taken by Helen who had a fun personality and full of information. If there was a question she couldn't answer at the time she went to find out the answer and came back to us while we were enjoying our cocktails. Would definitely go again but in the summer maybe as it is in very beautiful surroundings.
Very interesting, crowded, free...
