Get into the driving seat of a 17-tonne tank with this Tank Driving Taster and try your hand at some military vehicle mastery on a former WWII bombing range.

You’ll be getting your hands on an armed and armoured FV432 APC, driving for two laps before letting your fellow crew members try their hand at mastering the controls. It’s like nothing you’ve ever driven before, unless the vehicle you have sitting in your drive runs on caterpillar treads and has a periscope for looking out when the doors are closed.

You’ll experience both hatch-open driving for times of safety and the hatch-down, periscope-up driving that our fighting men and women need to do when safety’s paramount.

An expert instructor will be on hand to guide you through the pedals and levers you’ll need to make your way around the course, and after you’ve had your thrilling drive you’ve also got free entry into the onsite military museum and collection. See everything from a 40s military helicopter to a Sherman tank, and spend the day surrounded by military tech on this driving day with a difference.

This experience is available April to October on Sundays and selected Wednesdays between 09.00 and 17.00.

We recommend you book at least eight weeks in advance to ensure that dates are available. All bookings are subject to availability.

Please allow approximately 45 minutes for the driving plus additional time to visit the museum.

Participants must be medically fit to take part. No driving licence is required.

Spectators are welcome. A fee per spectator will be charged. This includes admission to view the Tank and Military Vehicle Collection. Please check the fees when booking
No dogs allowed on site.
