A must if you are into brewery visits while in London. The old parts are remarkable, and the museum/taproom is of interest for beer collectors. Enjoyed a lot the sampling after the tour. The taproom is so lovely, best i´ve seen. Gift shop not so interesting.
The brewery tour is interesting and thorough enough (at an acceptable price), followed by generous samples of Fuller’s beers. The brewery store stocks most Fuller’s and Gale’s beers - but not quite as many as I hoped for. Also some merchandise, but not the entire range of the webstore. Surprisingly large selection of wines.
A 10 pound charge will grant you a wonderful tour around the facility, covering both old and new factories. Tim was our guide and he is a lovely old man.
After the tour you get a sampler and a small Fullers engraved glass. Very nice!
As mid-sized brewery tours go, this is one of the best. Wasn't planning at all on going but happened to be in the 'hood and showed up just as a tour group was coalescing. If Jane is your guide, you're in for a treat. She's fab and knows her stuff. Lived the factory, the tasting, the whole package. If all you've had of Fullers so far has been bottled, as I had before this, you owe this historic brewery the opportunity to showcase their wares in real ale format as they are designed best to be.
Visited most recently on 25/03/13.
Country barn style shop to the left of the Mawsons Arms.
As well as the standard range of Fullers beers they stock a number of past vintages, the occasional collab with another brewer, plus a large number of wines and beeriana.
Worth noting that the vintage ales have become somewhat depleted in the last few months.
Status as at 25/03/13 ...
1999 - lots
2004/05/06 - moderate amount
2009 + fair amount
2000/07/08. all gone since my last visit pre Xmas.
10 minutes walk from Turnham Green tube on the District line. Just over 10 minutes walk from the Lamb brewery. 15% discount for CAMRA members.
Not the cheapest place to buy Fullers beers by some way - praying on overseas beer tourists. Eg - the latest Vintage is £5.50, yet you can buy this in Waitrose for £3.99.
(A review of the Fullers Brewery Shop) They have still got quite a few from the Vintage series, 1999, 2000, 2005, and from the last five years. A nice shop with lots of Fullers related gifts and a good offering of wine and spirits in addition to their own bottled beers. And it is, of course, the right place to go for all their latest bottled beers. Friendly service. Be aware that there is limited service by the Piccadilly line on the Turnham Green station if you are coming by the tube. It’s easier to travel by bus between Hammersmith, and the bus station near the brewery in Chiswick (visited, 26.11.2012).

A beautiful old Englsh brewery with a large shop with all kind op Fuller things and off course a lot of beers, even old one’s. Also a nice bar were the serve the Fuller beers. Friendly staff.
A large old fashioned brewery with a good shop selling most of the Fullers and Gales bottled beers, branded merchandise and wine. The tour is well worth the £10 charge but needs to be booked in advance. When I went a couple of years ago our guide was a retired brewery worker with a wealth of interesting information and tales of what it had been like to work there in the days when they still used dray horses to deliver to local pubs.

Nice place to go for a tour of the brewery. There is a shop with lots of merchandise and the regular Fullers products. There is a good selection of the vintage series with affordable prices.
