I went on it last year, just a day trip for me, went down through Cannock Chase woods, nice route, much better than the motorway.

Newer models Hinckley, older models for the Americas and Pacific sub-continent either Thailand, or Brazil.

"Triumph has six-world class factories around the world. Two of these factories are based in Hinckley in the UK, just a stone's throw from the Mallory Park race track. There are also three factories in Chonburi, Thailand, and one in Manaus, Brazil."

Last time I went to the NMM only a few modern Triumphs, dozens of Meriden Triumphs and overall about 1000+ bikes.

No mention of discount on NMM site but the Triumph factory tour page says 50% off with proof of factory tour (below picture of keyring).

We're going in March, group of about 15 - any recommendations for a cafe to eat and meet in beforehand?

If that's the NMM you're going to, there a greasy spoon cabin/caff at Bikersworld, Coleshill. Approx 10 mins ride away.

Yes you do get a discount voucher for the NMM on the factory tour.

Went in November.
