Looking to create a buzz for the summer holidays? This 60 minute bee tour around the King's Cross development allows you to learn how to ID bees, count bees, and how to help bees by creating more food and shelter for them.
The KXBeeTrail App 2018 unlocks content about bees on your smartphone at 7 marked locations en route. After each bee count, the App also unlocks vouchers to use at some of the cafes, restaurants and even an ice cream parlour along the way. The App is a great for adults and children alike to learn about nature on their doorstep in a fun way. It's gentle exercise, starting outside the German Gymnasium on King's Boulevard and finishing at the Skip Garden cafe, via Granary Square, the canal, Handyside Gardens and Lewis Cubitt square. The results of the bee count at the end of the summer will be shared with an organisation that collects data on the city's wildlife to help planners. The KXBeeTrail App 2018 can be downloaded from Google and Apple from 9 July - 10 September. It's created by the Honey Club (a partnership between Urban Bees and youth charity, Global Generation). It's good for the bees and for our wellbeing. More information is available here
