I think that if you want to take up beekeeping, you'll need to find out a bit more about it. You don't just get a hive and wait for the bees to come - it needs to be actively managed. If left to themselves, a new colony won't survive long, mainly because of disease.Honeybees rely very much on human management for their survival. Beekeepers usually start out with a "nucleus" of bees plus a queen (although a swarm may function in much the same way) but you need to know how to inspect the frames, how to check for disease, how to identify the queen and how to know whether she's mated successfully , when and how to feed the bees,... and so much more. It's a very rewarding hobby (my husband is a beekeeper). so it's worth finding out a bit more and then deciding whether it's something you'd like to take on.
