Definitely the factory. The tour is really informative and watching the vehicle assemble is fascinating. Best of all, the tour is free if you're a current Aston Martin owner and arrange the tour through the dealership.

Works is alright but unless you can arrange a tour of the actual workshop, Newport Pagnell is just like any other dealership.

I haven't been to the heritage trust but based on pictures I think Gaydon + The British Motoring Museum (a few minutes away) would be the better bet.

Definitely the factory.

I've been to the factory and Works twice each. The people at both are fantastic, and I got great tours of both. There's always some really cool stuff at Works, which makes it worth visiting. But if you have to choose and you've not done any of them, I'd say go to the factory. If you can fit in a trip to Works, do that as well, or do it the next time you're able to.

I donít know if Works provides a tour.

I was provide a lenghty tour at Works bc purchase a car there. Seeing the classics, like DB4 GTs being built to me was more exciting than Gaydon. Especially since can watch some of the Gayton tour on-line.

That said - youíll love either one of them.

This is really good to know, and thanks for asking. I end up in the UK on a regular basis, and I'll add this to the list!
