Overview

Take a step back to the days of wartime Britain with this tank driving gift experience, where you’ll take the controls of this 15 tonne military vehicle for 2 thrilling laps around a former WWII bombing range. It’s a perfect introduction to the world of tank driving, as well as experiencing a spot of history.

You’ll be in a tank with 2 others, taking it in turns to drive around the track. When it’s time for you to put your pedal to the metal, you’ll start driving with the hatch open, but not long after the hatch will be closed. You’ll only have the periscope to look through, giving you an insight into what life is really like on the battle field.

Whilst you’re not driving, sit back in the turret seat of the tank and enjoy the thrill of being passenger on this exciting ride, as well as the surrounding views of the stunning Leicestershire countryside.

You’re also welcome to explore the on-site museum for free, home to an array of fascinating military vehicles, from the likes of a 1947 Bell 47G helicopter to a 1940s M4 105 Sherman, along with tanks featured in famous films such as Saving Private Ryan.

A brief on the vehicle will be provided to prepare you for the tank-filled fun that you’re sure to have. Then it’s time to hop on the tank and tackle the tough terrain for 2 laps. A uniform and helmet will be provided so you’ll be fully kitted out for your experience.

It was a gift for my birthday and choosing the tank driving taster was a great choice. It was the opportunity to drive something that didn't require a steering wheel. My dad was able to come along for the ride and we were able to look around their museum afterwards. There was an extra cost for him to do so but it was reasonable and well worth it.

this was bought for me by my two adult children as a christmas present and while i have not looked up how much it was i believe it was well worth it. I would go back for the full day. the only down side was although i was told i could bring people to watch i was told on arrival each person would be charged £5 and although i was told it was in the email i have looked over all them all and can not find it . this could have added a £20 or more cost but it was waved as i never recieved one from the company itself. All in all it was a great time spend driving / being passenger in the tank. get there early as the place gets very busy and looks to be a great day if there all day

Just what we hoped for. It was excellent. Sadly they ran out of decent uniforms and I got a really manky one, which detracted a bit from the photos, but the tanks and driving were great.
