YOUR EXPERIENCEAs your tour starts you’ll receive a welcome drink and introduction before being taken back in time to learn how the Castle Bromwich manufacturing operations served the nation during the war years, when the facility was a primary location for building Spitfire fighter aircrafts in the 1940s.
You’ll learn how its unparalleled expertise in advanced aluminium manufacturing was developed further to produce the iconic Jaguar vehicles on the roads today.
Bringing you forward 78 years, you’ll be shown around the brand new Body In White facility. Here, you'll witness aluminium body panels being formed into unrivalled lightweight architecture.
