NEW: Mini Factory Tour
Tuesday 14th November 2017
Although today’s Mini bears little resemblance to the original car designed by Sir Isaac Issigonis in the 1950’s, the modern-day model of this iconic car is still built at the factory in Cowley, just outside Oxford. We have arranged a guided tour of the production plant, which can produce a car every 67 seconds. Experience steel being turned body shells by robots and then see how various components come together to produce a gleaming new car.
Please note that this is a walking tour of approximately 2 hours in length and is unsuitable for people with walking difficulties. We strongly recommend wearing comfortable closed walking shoes. Due to possible interference from plant machinery people with heart pacemakers are not allowed on the tour.
