The new Triumph factory visitor experiance opened it’s doors on the 1st of November 2017, and now a few weeks later I finally had time to head over to Hinckley and take a look.
The Triumph factory visitor experience is located at Triumph’s factory number 2, otherwise known as their corperate head office and main UK production site in Hinckley and is nice and easy to get to, with loads of free parking.
Entry is free and as you would expect there is a very nice collection of Triumph motorcycles detailing the company history it includes a few famous bikes from films, the Mission Impossible II Speed Triple for example, and loads of information on how Triumph develop and manufacture their bikes.
There is also a very nice cafe to help warm you up from your ride there, I loved the end wall that had load of Triumph engines on display and Triumph even provide free wi-fi for everyone.
Up stairs (which you access via the lift or some steps that take you into one of the warehouses so you can smell the new bikes) is another floow of Triumph goodness as well as a store selling Triumph branded things suchs as jackets, t-shirts and flip flops (For The Ride?)
There is an optional factory tour available that costs £15 per person and I woud advise you to book this before turning up as it’s always fully booked on the day.
The visitor experience that includes the cafe and Triumph store are closed on Monday’s and Tuesday but open the rest of the week, including Saturday’s and Sunday’s from 10am to 4:30pm, with a the exception of Friday nights when is closes at 7pm
