This was a present from my wife last year and I was so thrilled that we were able to do it finally this year. Tank driving was absolutely brilliant... read more - really out of this world. I also drove other armoured vehicles, as well as clay pigeon shooting. It was also interesting to learn about different weaponry. All in all it was a fantastic day. I almost forgot to mention the food - it was was delicious, so much so that I felt like asking for a second helping.
My wife came with me as a spectator. She also thoroughly enjoyed the whole day too as she and other spectators were allowed to sit in for the talks.
Tanks Alot have the most friendly and helpful staff, and in particular Venessa who tirelessly helped to ensure that my wife had all the information she needed. We would recommend this experience to any adult.

We bought a full month day for my dads birthday present and couldn’t be happier! Action packed day with lots of driving! We weren’t sure we would enjoy it... read more but everyone of us came away having had a great time. Spectators get to have a go at a variety of things too - definitely worth the money for drivers and spectators!

An absolute blast, I can’t recommend this place highly enough. This was a delayed 50th birthday present from a wonderful friend who then came along as a spectator. Just to... read more be clear spectators get to watch but also ride in the vehicles and if they are interactive get a go on stuff for fee as well !.
So there were 72 drivers and about the same number of guests. The farm is litterered with interesting vehicles and the staff go out of their way to make it fun and entertaining. There’s no military gruffness, just a great group of staff putting you at ease and making you laugh. Vanessa was the lady who organised the day for us and hugely helpful. So the day starts with a prebrief and you split into teams who rotate through the different activities. We had a calm start with Ian doing survival starting fires etc then we went to shoot clays with Steve which was great fun. Don’t worry, no barn doors were harmed when I was shooting !. Next up the first bit of driving, a Russian SPG then the lovely 432. The staff were great and very encouraging as it’s a little daunting to get in a huge tank and drive it around a muddy field but it was AMAZING.
Break for lunch and a huge meal to keep your energy up.
After this a brilliant interactive bit of musketry and mortars from the 1800’s. The two fellas doing this were just hilarious and it really was brilliant. Then a talk in the armoury from a serving soldier called Danny on the history of guns and lots of hands on with their huge range of historic deactivated weapons. Really informative and light hearted too.
Finally the last two drives of the day; the Springer which is basically military dune buggy (and amazing fun), it’s like super Mario cart on crack, then a lovely AFV called a Stormer which was a whole different ride on a really fun rough course.
At the end of the day the top student gets to drive one of their MBTs (used in the Fast and the Furious) over a mini cooper. Brilliant Caitlin on our team won that privilege and DESTROYED it.
It’s a very clever mix of high adrenalin activity balanced with some easy to watch and play bits to balance the day nicely.
A long say, stuffed full of fun. I really can’t recommend this highly enough. Well done to Nick the owner, ‘Mini’, Ashley, Jill and all the other staff and volunteers.

Coming here was a surprise birthday gift from my fiancé and I couldn’t believe it.
I had a fantastic day getting to drive 4 different tanks which was incredible.... read more Todd helped teach me to pick up the driving really fast and he had great banter the whole time.
The armoury was amazing, it was filled with 100s of real weapons from all over the ages that we got to hold and get to know, and Todd was great to answer questions about so many of them.
Finally driving the mark 10 chieftain to crush a car was intense and was Todd’s last crush which we felt honour to be part of. It was insane how effortlessly the 60ton beast completely smushed the car into pieces and caught it all on camera!
Overall 11/10 would do again and recommend to anyone!

Best time you can have, without taking your clothes off.
There is so much more to add but you have to do it to appreciate it.

We booked a private car crush for my Sons 13th Birthday. We got to drive the FV432 and the 2S1. Absolutely incredible.
