Wow! What a fantastic experience! Back for my second experience, this time a car crush. Thanks to the amazing Nick, who loves what he does and it's infectious! I... read more had an amazing time and am still smiling 2 days later!! This place is a must, best fun ever. If I could I would give it a 20 star review! I Will BE BACK!!!!! See the website for videos.
What a refreshing and fun day out with the guys. Makes a change from the day to day madness we are living in right now. Recommended to anyone wanting some... read more space, fresh air, fun and to feel “normal” again for the day.
My girlfriend surprised me for my birthday with a VIP session with Todd at Tanks A Lot. It was such an enjoyable day and I would recommend it to anyone.... read more Todd is great and he has some amazing stories, and he is very knowledgeable on all things military. I can’t believe somewhere like this exists, it really is a playground for adults. I’d love the opportunity to come back here.
Came here for my 21st birthday and it was a fantastic day doing multiple laps around the course in an FV 432 and a 2S1 which was great fun and... read more surprisingly easy, once you get the hang of it that is. Then we went to the armory to look at the impressive collection and field strip a Bren gun, only to do it again on a timer which I got below 35 seconds (this includes putting it back together). Then there was the car crush which was probably the best bit, granted I barely fit in the Chieftan being as tall as I am (6'4) but it was a great experience nonetheless. Highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a good day out.
I was lucky enough to receive the tank experience as a present; so had very little appreciation for what it would be like. However it is safe to say that... read more the day was beyond any expectations I could possibly have had for an activity like this.
Driving tanks was certainly not top of my bucket list, but was very different to driving many other vehicles, and gave an appreciation for the experience anyone who has ever had to do it as a job faces.
The actual experience of driving was great, and enhanced even more by: the many nearby historic vehicles; the weapon displays; the length and quality of the experience; but above all the passion and entertaining stories of the host.
If you have any interest in an experience like this then this location should be top of your list.
Bought this experience for my husband, wasn't sure what to expect but can tell you we weren't expecting to have such a fantastic day. Added extras on so... read more our young adult kids could have a go in the vehicles. We spent the day with Tod who is very experienced and knowledgable in all things tank and more, funny, engaging just a generally pleasant guy. Husband and son enjoyed trying to strip down the Bren gun in the quickest time - neither getting anywhere near the time Tod can do it. This definitely something we would do again. My daughter will be back despite Tod's comment that he had never left for a lap on a Monday and got back on the Wednesday!! She may well take her H license. We all had great fun and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Hubby had great fun doing the car crush at the end and has taken great delight in telling everyone about the day.
Booked the private tank crush experience for our (tank mad) son's 18th birthday and to say he a brilliant time would be an understatement and in no way does the... read more whole experience justice. Don't be put off by the title though, it's not just a car crush, it's a full afternoon of activities that ends with the car crush.
We'd been before about 4 years ago and done the full-monty day as a family which was great fun (and which I've previously reviewed). You get more activities on the full-monty day but less time doing each one, it's more like a taster event and only the best on the day gets the chance to crush the car.
This visit he had chance to drive the British FV432 and the Russian 2S1 for multiple laps round the course with us watching apart from when he drove the 2S1 one spectator was allowed to stand in the commander's hatch whilst it went round the circuit so his dad got a ride too.
Word to the wise - it's not a purpose built viewing area, just some garden chairs on the edge of the course so if you're spectating consider this in information in terms of the weather - you will either get very wet and muddy or in our case this visit, very hot and sunburnt so take drinks / shade / waterproofs as per the British weather.
The driving experience was followed by a visit to the armoury which because we'd been before he was shown how to strip down and reassemble a Bren gun instead of the talk on the weapons in there. With a couple of attempts got to sub 35 seconds which he was quite pleased with.
Then the bit he'd been looking forward to, the car crush using a British Chieftain MBT. Apparently when you run over the car you don't feel a thing! The smile on the face said it all though, he had a brilliant time and as well as our photos / videos of the day we also have the video which Nick made and posted on their Facebook page.
As spectators we hitched a ride out to the course in the back of the FV432 armoured personnel carrier which though dark isn't as claustrophobic as you fear and if do you have any issues with that they are more than happy to try to accommodate you - they took my 74 year old mum out to the spectating point in the pick-up truck rather than her getting in the back of the FV432, and again when it was car crush time instead of walking across the fields we got a lift out there in a WWII WIlley's jeep.
Vanessa who answered the phone and helped us find a way to include my mum was lovely and helpful and came to say hello on the day deserves a special mention, as of course does the all knowledgeable Todd, our instructor for the day, who really helped make it a very special, and memorable, 18th birthday. No doubt we'll be back in another few years for him to do his H license.
What a day, couldn't have asked for anything more geniunely a mega day. Definitely worth the money, thanks for a great day Todd
An experience not to be missed, great family day out. Exciting and exhilarating in perfect surroundings. The hosts were great company, engaging and welcoming throughout the day. Tanks a lot,... read more Tanks A Lot leaving with great memories and a desire to return.

What an excellent day! Great place with the most helpful, friendly and knowledgeable staff.I got to experience so much and was guided through it professionally by Tod who went above... read more and beyond to accommodate me. Nick is a fantastic guy who did everything he could to help me out in very way possible! The experience itself was amazing! I was lucky enough to drive several tanks and loved every second of it! I would highly recommend this place to anyone who loves a bit of adrenaline fueled action, especially of you're a motor head or military nut! You won't regret it! You'll be buzzing for weeks. Big thanks to Vanessa who continues to go the extra mile. I look forward to coming back and seeing you all again, I loved it that much!
Wow, what an experience and what fantastic guys and gals here. Decided on a leap year proposal to my bf (he said yes) after a tank driving experience. It was... read more booked and arranged well in advance with "secret squirrel" mission accomplished right up to the last minute when my other half was suddenly wondering why he was climbing into a tank. I was initially going to another provide but went here just based on how wonderful the people where in organising everything. The venue is spot on, we will definitely be back! Can't speak highly enough of Vanessa, Nigel and Rob for making this such a very special day. xxx
