Highly recommended for all, even if you are not a petrolhead. The tour guide was informative and patient, encouraging of questions and giving full answers. The factory is a great British success story and its legacy is one of which we can all be proud.

Disappointing tour as we did not get to see the main production line. The F line is very dated with heavy manual labour Expensive for the main line to be excluded
