An amazing opportunity to venture behind the scenes of JCB’s world famous diggers; this unique tour includes historical information, little-known facts, exciting insights and gets you up close to the JCB manufacturing process.

Experience JCB Yourself

Your visit will begin with welcome refreshments, and a short presentation in the JCB Theatre showing our corporate brand video on the global manufacturing facilities and products. You will then be invited by one of our Tour Guides to attend a personal tour of the ‘’Story of JCB’’ exhibition with time to visit the JCB shop.

See How our Machines are Made

The tour will then take you to the assembly line of the world famous Backhoe Loader machine; here you will see the process of how the machine is built from the delivery of the sheet steel, profiling, laser cutting, welding, paint shop, assembly and finally the finished product!


When booking one of our fantastic tour packages (see below), you’ll experience a unique dining experience in our VIP Hospitality Suite with seasonal dishes created by our Executive Head Chef, Alastair Rowe, using the organic produce sourced from our sister farm, ‘Daylesford Organic’.
