The Poppy Factory

Embark on a journey through the heart of Remembrance in Richmond as The Poppy Factory celebrates its centenary. Immerse yourself in the poignant narrative of the individuals who craft the iconic poppies at the charity's newly established visitor centre and exhibition.

Originating in the aftermath of the First World War, The Poppy Factory evolved into a close-knit community of wounded and injured veterans alongside their families. You'll have the opportunity to witness how these veterans continue to handcraft Royal and regimental wreaths and even try your hand at creating your own. A variety of souvenirs can be purchased at the petite gift shop, accepting card payments only. Today, The Poppy Factory stands as a national charity dedicated to supporting veterans with health conditions in their pursuit of various employment opportunities. Your DayBreak includes a guided visit of the factory along with tea and cakes.

 

What's Included:

  • Entry to The Poppy Factory

  • Guided tour of the factory

  • Tea and Cakes
