Our tours are temporarily closed from November 2019 to November 2020.
In November 2019 we stopped running tours due to planned refurbishment work of the factory, to make way for a new and improved visitor experience. If you wish to be notified when tour bookings become available after the building work, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We don't just make Remembrance poppies and symbols, we also support veterans with health conditions into employment.
The Poppy Factory’s employability team works year round to support our veterans into jobs. From giving advice to ex-Service men and women, to supporting businesses, we have it covered.

Tours re-open in November 2020.
Enjoy a fascinating presentation, watch a film about the factory and our history, and make your own poppy. You will also be able to see some of the wreaths and poppies we have made throughout history, including for the Royal Family.
Your teams can help transform veterans lives by fundraising in-aid of The Poppy Factory, volunteering their professional expertise or joining our friendly and diverse workforce for an inspiring, interactive (and indoor!) team building day at our Factory in Richmond-upon-Thames.
“The Poppy Factory was a brilliant find. The volunteer tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable and facilitating. We made a poppy in the factory and met some veterans employed there. It was fascinating to see the Royal Family’s wreaths and the different designs. Truly inspiring, humbling and educational.”

No two people’s experiences, skills or situations are ever the same. Complex health issues, such as PTSD or a physical injury developed during or after Service, can make it incredibly tough for veterans to find and sustain civilian work. That’s why the support we provide is tailored to suit each person. Meet our veterans
