Once you have arrived at Armourgeddon, you will be kitted out in your tank suit and given a helmet. Then it's off to the tank track where you will be introduced to your FV432.
Our Tank Driving Experience is run on a one-to-one basis. Following a safety briefing and a short background history of the FV432, it's time to get going! Initially your instructor will drive you around one of the tracks here at Armourgeddon, based on an old WWII bombing range. Then it’s over to you. You will be instructed as to how the controls of the FV432 work, given a headset to wear under your helmet and then you are off.
Your first lap is driven with the drivers hatch open so that you can become accustomed to the track and the controls. Then it's out of your comfort zone for the second lap as we lower your seat down and the hatch gets closed above you. Driving in battle conditions looking only through your periscope it’s back to the track for lap two. The third lap is of your choice; will it be hatch open or closed? One thing is for sure; you will have a newfound respect for our members of the Armed Forces.

Huge thanks to Mick for helping my husband enjoy an amazing tank driving experience. All the staff were approachable and friendly.
I booked myself in as a passenger in the tank and thoroughly enjoyed it.
The museum was interesting and we enjoyed a cuppa from the little cafe.
Easy to book and easy to find.
Would certainly recommend. Will be be returning? Yes definitely!!
Thank you everyone.

Great day out. Friendly and approachable team on site who really enjoy their job. Museum is well worth a visit but the tank driving should be on every ones bucket list. My only minor criticism is the quality of the coffee. Highly recommended, will be back.
