Come and see how Amazon operates and what is involved in distributing orders nationwide from its Rugeley centre. During the tour, visitors will have the chance to take a close look at the daily tasks of employees at work, as well as observing many of the key processes and technologies of the fulfilment centre, from picking – retrieving ordered items from the shelves – to packing, where items are carefully parcelled up in Amazon’s famous brown boxes before being sent on their way to customers.
The tour is followed by lunch at “The Colliers” pub restaurant, which is almost adjacent to Amazon.
After lunch, the day will continue onto Lichfield Cathedral for a guided tour. This cathedral is one of the oldest places of Christian worship, and the burial place of the great Anglo-Saxon missionary Bishop, St Chad. It is also the only medieval English cathedral with three spires. This magnificent building has a rich history, reflected in its architecture and treasures.
