A discovery session at The Poppy FactoryImage
The Poppy Factory has been an integral part of Richmond since the 1920s. Today we still make Remembrance products in our factory, and we also support veterans into all kinds of employment across England and Wales.

How to find us

The Poppy Factory is a 15 minute walk from Richmond train station. You can also catch the 65 bus from Richmond station to the Compass Hill stop, which is outside our visitor centre.

Our entrance is a sharp turn on Petersham Road, opposite a colourful poppy pedestrian crossing, a few hundred yards from Richmond Bridge.

We are unable to offer parking for individual cars or coaches but passengers can be set down by the coach at the entrance to our car park on arrival and collected after their visit.

Pay and display coach and car parking facilities are available at The Old Deer Park, Richmond (TW9 2RA), around 15 minutes’ walk from the factory and accessible from the A316. There are also NCP car parks available in Richmond town centre, around 10 minutes’ walk.
