THE ULTIMATE MINI EXPERIENCE

Experience production and take a look behind the scenes with our experts. The products made by the BMW Group inspire with unique design, creativity and agility. It is exciting and fascinating to experience the live production.

Plant Oxford is the birthplace and heart of MINI production. Manufactured to individual customer specifications, hundreds of MINIs leave the plant’s assembly lines each day, off to meet new owners in more than 110 countries around the world.

Three UK plants have had a part to play in MINI production – Plant Hams Hall makes engines, Plant Swindon produces body pressings and sub-assemblies for MINI, and all this comes together at Plant Oxford with body shell production, paint and final assembly.

Since production of the new MINI started in 2001, almost 3 million cars have been made at Plant Oxford. But the plant’s heritage goes back much further than that – it is a site with 100 years of automotive manufacturing history, which has become a landmark in the “city of dreaming spires”.

Your exclusive guided tour will include a two hour tour around the MINI Plant Oxford with optional refreshments before or after your tour.

ASTON MARTIN: BEHIND THE SCENES

Experience the exclusive opportunity to explore the State of the Art Headquarters of Aston Martin.

The Art of Living team will take you on an expert led tour of the production facility, with unparalleled access and insight into the immaculate craftsmanship, precision and quality techniques that go into every Aston Martin.
