New opening times for Robinsons visitor centre

Following their 1 year anniversary, Robinsons Brewery in Stockport have announced new opening times for their Visit England accredited Visitors Centre.

The Apsley Street conferencing and educational centre, which has welcomed over 10,000 people since its opening in March 2013, has increased the opening hours to cope with the phenomenal demand for its facilities.

Retail Operations Manager, Simon Taylor said: “The positive feedback we’ve received since we opened in March last year has been overwhelming. With a year under our belt, the time felt right to increase our business hours and offer our unique experience to everyone 7 days a week.”

The new opening hours will see the centre open on Mondays for the first time and an additional Sunday tour added to the schedule at 2.30pm.

“Our brewery tours have proven to be a huge success” said Simon. “People love not only learning about Robinsons cask ale but also the growth of an English business that is over 175 years old. It’s been a hit with historians and beer lovers alike." 

The building has hosted over 100 conferences and meetings for local businesses and groups in their Old Tom meeting Room. Just last week, Robinsons also announced the launch of a new conference room aptly named after one of the brewery’s founders; ‘Frederic’s Room’.

"Going forwards we hope to extend our business offering and the launch of our new conference room will help us achieve that,” added Simon.
