I booked this as a 60th birthday present for my dad because he used to drive tanks in the army. We had to travel an hour and half but we weren't disappointed! We paid to watch and had a great time. My 3 year old thoroughly enjoyed watching all the tanks too! It was chilly so we were grateful of the hot drinks and food on offer. My dad had a fantastic time and really enjoyed the experience. Great present idea. The museum was good too. Not massive but lots fit into the space that was there. Very interesting. Overall a lovely day out

Brilliant experience with really friendly and understanding staff. The weather was torrential rain but that just added to the fun, with the tank sliding sidewards.
Many thanks to the staff.

Synopsis:

Team building is an important part of business growth and development. Meetings and seminars on the importance of team work tend to be extremely boring to the staff and they don’t do much in developing their working spirits. The best way to develop the spirit of team work among your staff is through corporate team building activities. There is a wide range of activities to choose and you could involve your team in picking their most preferred options. The best options on the market are paintballing and tank driving.
