This is year 3 for the Bute Park Bees and they have been busy bees once again!

Bee hives in Bute Park once supplied honey to the wealthy Bute family and their guests in Cardiff Castle but over 60 years had passed since honey was last produced in the city centre park.

Thanks to private donations from two Bute Park-loving individuals to help set up the hives and the mentoring of enthusiastic parks employees by local beekeepers Nature’s Little Helpers.

Bute Park honey is now back on the menu and available to buy directly from Bute Park Education Centre (open daily 12.00 – 15.00 – cash only) and the Bute Park Plant Shop (open Wednesday and Saturday 10.00 – 15.00).
