I guess it is now? And I'll guess you will see what they do when you go!  :laugh:

I doubt there is any production in UK. The site is listed as an Exporter/Importer, so it must be a regional office, taking care of sales and marketing in UK. Other buisness developement might take place there too.

Well I have to concur with you there about the UK, the thing is though that LEGO Enfield is in the US :laugh:!
TLG facts

As for touring it ...... They have a modelbuilder shop where they do special stuff for exhibitions etc. Like the 12 large Indiana Jones statues for shops and special events.

Then there is the S@H for North America, Brickmaster, set designers, economy etc etc. And Community Relations Coordinator, a.k.a Steve Witt. Here´s a picture of him in his office working?

So to conclude, it´s not like doing the tour in Billund. But you can always call them and ask if you can drop by. Connecticut is nice.

I don't think it is, but my uncle met one of the Master Model Builders, and told him about me (forget which one), so he invited me on a tour while I'm in the U.S. (to visit my uncle)

I'd like to go on a tour there or just check things out (that one could...).  Fortunately, its not too far from me.  I've met Steve and he's a decent enough fellow (he likes Green Lantern, etc comics, so that's a plus!).

I wanna see a better pic of that poster he's got hanging on the wall...
