We have had many visitors that have enjoyed a day out at the tank museum always with very positive feedback. 30 miles from Quiet Woman House, just under an hours drive through Dorset countryside.
Huge display of tanks and military vehicles, several special event days where the tanks are driven and demonstrated. There are experience days where you can go behind the scenes and see how the museum is run and also get to experience being inside a tank. See their website for the VIP days.
One of the biggest draws is Tiger day, this year held on the 15th of September. If you are interested in tanks then you will know all about tiger 131, the only operational tiger tank in the world.
Tankfest is held this year on the 29th of June & 1st of July. Moving displays, trade stalls, static displays and loads of entertainment for all the family. Please check the tank museum website for full details.
