2012 Factory Tour #2


Recommended Posts

We have secured 40 places for the Jaguar Factory Tour for the end of March.

We will open up the register in January so please keep checking back.

On the day we also normally visit the Museum which is a 15 min drive away from the factory and also stop at a pub for lunch. It's great to make a great whole day of Jaguar goodness :)

Hi Steve,

I would like to be included, possibly my adult sons as well, depends on the date and which production line?

Just as a matter of interest, I assume you mean the Castle Bromwich factory, and Jaguar Heritage at Browns Lane, Coventry? They are more than 15mins apart, it is about 15 miles, but I would allow 30mins!

Hi, I've been driving Jaguar since I was 21, when I bought a series 1 xj6 with a knackered engine. Fixed it up (Great story) and have been in love with them since that first drive. I've done nearly all the repairs and projects since then on the following 10 xj's. Times are hard now, but I've still managed to get myself an older Jag, an X300 with manual gearbox :) It passed it's Mot first time last week, so I'm pretty pleased with it. Will get some classic insurance on it next week, and I would love to bring it along with me for a factory tour. Am I the luckiest guy with the initials JAG? And yes, I had to buy a private plate, L 9 JAG :) Cheers, John Alexander Grant.

Complete Joshua Harrison (2 Ticket)

Joshua Harrison should be substituted by Pete Harrison (2 Ticket). Joshua is my youngest son and it was his PayPal account that I used to pay for 2 tickets as I do not have a PayPal account myself and do not know how to create one. I promise that I have paid him back - with real money.

It was great to see that I have two tickets on the list. Will you be sending joining instructions showing where we need to be and at what times? Is parking available please?

Kind regards,

Brian Watt

I happened to passing along the M42 near Birmingham today so made a detour in oder to find the Jaguar Visitor Centre at Castle Bromwich.

Having got off the M6 and onto Chester Road pass straight over the first roundabout. After a couple of hundred yards turn left into Jaguar Gate 1, then just before the main gatehouse turn right into the Visitor Centre. If you miss Gate 1 there is another roundabout a few hundred yards further up Chester Road, although as Chester Road is a duel carriageway so you will have to come back to the roundabout a couple of hundred yards past Gate 1 and then make another run.

There are numerous retail car parks in the area as well as on street parking in a housing estate opposite the factory.

      Jaguar is commemorating the end of its internal combustion sports car lineage in 2024 with an exclusive limited-edition F-TYPE inspired by two iconic 1960s racing E-types

      Just 150 examples of the F-TYPE ZP Edition will be the last internal combustion-engined sports cars designed by Jaguar. These 575PS supercharged petrol V8 F-TYPEs feature specially curated interior and exterior details by the personalisation experts at SV Bespoke.
