This is a fantastically enjoyable and utterly unique half day experience where you get get the chance to control a fully operational tank! Measuring 7m long and 3m high, the Chieftain really is a phenomenal piece of engineering and some serious war equipment! After this thrill, you can then get behind the wheel of another of the World's finest fighting machines ... the Abbott FV433 SPG. The fully operating swivel gun made this tank one of the most feared in wartime, and you won't find it hard to see why!

Next up is the FV432 Armoured personnel carrier - the most common variant since the 1960s where it was used to transporting infantry. As if this exhilarating experience wasn't quite enough to satisfy you, you get the added bonus of driving a quad bike! It may be smaller, but it's still huge fun exploring in this mighty vehicle! Your knowledgeable instructor will assist you with all the driving techniques, so you'll be amazed at how far you come!

Once you have arrived and been welcomed to the centre your day will begin with registration and a full safety briefing. You will have professional instruction throughout the experience as you drive the 700hp Chieftain Tank, Abbot SPG, Armoured Personnel Carrier and the Quad Bikes. There will be complimentary refreshments available and at the end of the experience you will receive a certificate of achievement to remember your day with.

Experience Tank Driving - Hampshire

(15/04/2013) The Chieftain tank was very disappointing - 200 metres out in a straight line and 200 metres back in reverse. All other aspects were good and, bearing in mind the torential rain, the staff did an excellent job throughout the experience

I have to say what a fabulous day! We all enjoyed it. I bought it as a gift for my son's 30th birthday. The staff were professional, amusing, and very helpful. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending the experiance to anyone, male or female. Thank you for a lovely day.

I was given the tank driving session as a birthday gift and it was one of the best presents I have ever had! The day was full of fun, surprise, activity and smiles and driving the Chieftain was the highlight of the day for me. I thought I would stall it or embarrass myself but with the help of the staff managed to drive up the hill and reverse with no mishaps!! The staff are all very friendly and they put you at ease from the moment you arrive. All in all this was a fun filled day which I would recommend to others - you will not be disappointed! Thank you Juniper Leisure!

What a 'Fantastic' day. Wasnt keen on the quads. Loved, loved, loved the Chieftain tank, that was the main tank that i wanted to drive! SO, so enjoyed the others too! To be in control of them was fantastic! Friendly instructors, made to feel welcome. Humour injected at every angle! Cant wait to do it again! Thank you for such a lovely day!

I had a really enjoyable day, the staff were very friendly and helpful. We did manage to find the site although a sign on the main road would have been helpful. Thanks for a great day.

A great way to spend an afternoon - not just driving a tank but also an APC, a mobile gun and riding a quad bike! Very well organised with four groups rotating round the activities so not much hanging around, and tea and cake were included. The spectators also got to ride on the tank. The best fun I've had in ages. Admittedly, the weather was good so the driving conditions were relatively pleasant, but I would recommend this to anyone who wants to try a different sort of track day and doesn't mind a bit of mud!

A brilliant day out. The only impovement i can sugest would be to expand the Chieftain circuit to a loop or figure of 8.

Great day out, took my kids as well who were given loads of rides both in and on the tanks themselves. Would recommend it to friends!

This experience was for my Dad, who at 70 has always wanted to drive a tank! He is very deaf so I had some concerns about him being able to understand the instructors. I mentioned this on arrival and the staff and instructors couldn't have been more helpful. All in all a very enjoyable day, worth the trip down.

Would have loved to do more with the chieftain than just go forward and back but had an amazing day and thank you to all involved for a great experience. Would have no hesitation in recommending you to my friends... but at the moment they are unlikely to take up the challenge as they think I'm mad. Many thanks all the same. Eirlys (Crazy Lady) Jones.

This was a treat for my girlfriend who is facinated by tanks, now she has driven some on this experience it has mde her obsession even worse so it must of been good, I went to spectate and was included in the many activities set up for friends and family. Brilliant day that is not effected by weather.

Staff were nice, facility was alright. Down side was that you could only drive the tank forwards and backwards on a straight track, no turning was allowed. The other vehicles you got to drive were around a track though, so turning was fine!

The only thing was the signage to get there could have been a bit clearer. The sign was very small and on the other side of the dual carriageway - we kept missing it. Otherwise excellent.
