Learn how to drive 17 tons of steel with this great tank driving experience and live out all those childhood fantasies. Your experienced instructor will quickly help you learn all the basics while driving around the course with the hatches open and your head out so you can see where you're going. Once you're got to grips with driving the beast and you're feeling confident, try driving with only your periscopes for vision and the hatches closed for the ultimate thrill!
Arrive at the venue at the appointed time and be greeted by your friendly and experienced instructor. First up is a safety briefing, followed by an overview of the tank and its controls. Then you'll spend some time getting used to piloting the craft, before your first test – driving the tank over a World War II bombing range! If you feel confident enough, you can repeat the course under ‘real' conditions, with the hatches down and only your periscope to guide you! Your experience lasts for approximately 45 minutes.

The experience was brilliant - hurtling round the countryside in an 18 ton tank. As well as this it was well organised and the people were very friendly and knowledgable. I arrived 30 mins early and they still fitted me in immediately.

We incorporated the tank driving experience as part of a family fun day out.on 9/04/11 .Our two sons went as passengers on my husbands treat.The gift recipient being able to take passengers is great. Sons in their thirties yet giggled like teenagers. Everyone was very friendly and my husband kept smiling all day afterwards. Bad weather would be a bonus here , parking excellant ,dogs allowed car park only keep in car while doing experience. Small museum and refreshment area. A fun time had by all.
