MINI Plant Oxford tours bag top award.

  • MINI Plant Oxford tour receives ‘Best Told Story’ accolade from VisitEngland
  • Award recognises attractions that ‘go the extra mile to provide a high quality day out’
  • Record 21,000 visitors came to see how MINIs are made in 2017

MINI Plant Oxford has received a top visitor attraction award from the official national tourism agency for England.
 

The plant, which builds more than 1,000 MINIs each day, has been recognised by VisitEngland with a ‘Best Told Story Accolade’ for its factory tour, which gives visitors a behind the scenes look at how this iconic British car is made.

 

With a dedicated team of tour guides, MINI Plant Oxford welcomed well over 21,000 visitors from all over the world last year to see how a new car is built here every 67 seconds. The VisitEngland accolade builds on the TripAdvisor ‘Certificate of Excellence’ awarded to the team in September.

 

In November the plant’s tour was recognised with a VisitEngland ‘Quality Rose Marque’ - a sign that the MINI Plant Oxford tour has been independently assessed and meets the high standards that visitors expect.

 

Tours of MINI Plant Oxford run Monday to Friday and last just over two hours. There is a maximum of 15 people per group and the minimum age is 10 years old.
