Took the factory tour. Website says they run everyday but it doesn’t mention they run on a skeleton crew. I only saw 3 people actually working. I think it would be better during the week. Also the guy managing the section where you can hold...More

We took a massive detour purely to do the tour. The guide was a little impersonal and the tour was over fast but it was very interesting and some of the staff throughout the venue were really lovely. You won't spend more than an hour...More
