If you’ve ever fancied visiting Longbridge for a factory tour, now’s your opportunity. MG Motor UK is opening its gates for two-hour tours of the facility starting on 15 March. The tours take place every Thursday, start at 1.00pm, and last for approximately two hours.
Visitors will be able to learn more about MG, thanks to a factory presentation. And will then go on to vsitit Lord Austin’s office, which had been so effectively preserved by the Austin ex-Apprentices still working on the site during the downtime between the downfall of MG Rover and the resumption of production in 2008. There will also be a tour of the MG Museum and Technical Centre. The latter is well worth a look for anyone who remains unconvinced about the levels of UK input into current and forthcoming MGs.
Disappointingly, the tour does not include the assembly buildings. MG states, ‘we are currently undertaking facility work to to improve our capability for our exciting future models.’ Interesting.
