“Rotary Club Trip”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

After a horrendous (5 hour !!!) journey down from Yorkshire, the trip was well worth it.
Whether you are are car buff or not, you cannot help but be impressed by the pride, passion and craftsmanship that is there for all to see.
As other reviewers have said, we were shown everything from start of manufacture to finish - there are no no-go areas (apart from the paint spraying shop for obvious reasons), and you get chance to talk to the guys on the job, who are only too happy to converse with you and answer your questions. Our guides, Dixon and Mike, were great and quite obviously have Morgan blood flowing through their veins!
Superb cafe and visitor reception area, and we owe special thanks to the ladies in the 'canteen' for accommodating a party of 29 with soup and sandwiches at such short notice after our nightmare trip down.
Also don't miss the gift shop, which offers some very tasteful quality goods.
In particular, the centenary sketchbook, 'Made in Malvern' by Glynis Dray, published for the Company's centenary in 2009, is a marvellous tribute to all the people who work for the 'Morgan family', and (IMO) makes a great souvenir.

Wonderful Cars made by a Wonderful Company! Only wish I could afford on !

“Superb way to spend time in Malvern”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

If you're planning a trip to Malvern, phone ahead and book a place on this interesting tour of the Morgan Motor Company factory. You don't pay until you arrive (£12.50 per adult). Tour starts with an introduction by one of the informative guides (we had Mike), followed by 10 minute film, then the actual tour. To see these beautiful cars being built by hand in front of your eyes (there are no robots in this company), is an amazing sight. The staff are very friendly as you walk around and although they must get a bit tired of being watched intently by those of us on the tour, they acknowledge that you are there and all take pride in their work. There are no barriers to taking photos, all the guides ask is that you stay within the red walkway so as not to bump into any vehicle/body shell or a craftsperson at work. Our guide has been carrying out his role for 12 months at Morgan and you can tell he is passionate about the vehicles (owning his for around 1 year). He was amusing and knowlegeable about the end to end process. Neither my wife or I have ever taken an interest in Morgans, but to us two 'novices' we now dream of one day owning one of these beautiful pieces of work. Would definitely recommend this tour.

“Excellent visit”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

If you are passionate about Morgans then this is worth a visit, the staff were exceptional, so helpful and knowledgeable in how the factory works. My husband did the trip around the factory and museum and at the end took a driven trip out in a Morgan and he was delighted with the experience. The gift shop and cafe are a must.

Our tour guide was knowledgeable and obviously a great fan of Morgan cars. Good to see that manufacturing in England is still alive and thriving.

“English craftsmen at work!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

An amazing experience to see how these famous cars are made - all by hand. This must be one of only a handful of places where one can get right up close to craftsmen creating a motor-car. It was fascinating and well worth the ticket price. The tour lasted a good 2 hours and covered just about everything. If you are interested in motor cars (or even if you're not) you must see this place - it's unique and thriving!
