Excellent tour of the Poppy Factory. Our guide Jyoti fully explained the history of the Poppy Factory and how the Poppy has become a symbol of remembrance. We were also given a talk on The Poppy Factory’s continuing work with employment seeking disabled service personnel. The tours are twice a day and free but need to be booked A nice touch was being offered tea or coffee and biscuits on arrival in the reception hall. There are also nice walks and eating places along the banks of the River Thames only 10minutes away. Well done The Poppy Factory.

Learnt many surprising facts about the history of the poppy. Amazed at the production of so many items. Volunteer tour guides were excellent, very knowledgeable and proud of the factory. Opportunity to purchase poppy items from gift shop. Made a poppy in the factory. Viewed the royal family's wreaths and photographs of visits. Met ex-veterans who work in the factory. Felt very happy to leave a donation. Nice cup of tea or coffee on arrival. First part of the tour is sitting, watching a presentation, Q&A. Second part is a short tour. Highly recommend a visit. Tours must be booked.

We had a very interesting visit to the Poppy Factory today. Lovely friendly, helpful staff and we learnt a lot about the excellent work that the organisation does. We had a delicious home cooked lunch, which has to be pre-booked, and were able to try our hand at making our own poppies. All in all a very enjoyable afternoon.

We went on a coach trip and it was an extremely interesting and informative afternoon. The volunteer staff were just great. You can even make your own poppy. Given a cup of tea or coffee. Merchandise can be purchased from the small shop area. Definitely recommend

Surprised this was tucked away from main street, with not a lot of parking. Interesting knowledge given by guide and short videos. Nice participation in making poppies, would have liked to have spoken to the Veteran's though.
