Tank Driving Experience Leicestershire

Get ready to rumble... your way around a purpose-built Leicestershire course in a huge military tank, with this fantastic tank driving experience, including one-to-one tuition!

This Leicestershire experience lets you drive a tank for 3 glorious laps around a purpose-built obstacle course. This is a really unique driving experience, for those who like a bit of rough! Forget your sleek cars and your shiny tarmac, this one is muddy, bumpy, loud, and larger than life!

This feels like an authentic military experience in many ways - you'll be suited and booted in camo gear and a helmet, and driving an authentic, 17-tonne modern military vehicle. Your instructor will guie you through the basics before you take the controls and rumble around the course yourself!Your day will begin with a vital briefing concerning the instructions on how to drive 17 tonnes of hardened steel. Then if you have managed to contain your excitement long enough you will be let loose to attempt tackling the steep obstacle course. Feeling confident? Well next you will have to try it with all doors and hatches closed seeing only through your periscopes! You will take full control of this amazing machine and be in charge of where, what, why and how the tank moves over the purposely difficult terrain.

I thoroughly enjoyed the experience - both as passenger on the first lap, and as driver on the next. My instructor, Matt, was brilliant, giving just the right amount of advice and guidance, and making the whole journey worthwhile. Thank you very much!

I had a bad wrist and didnt think I could drive the tank but the guys there were great and were doing everything they could to ensure I could make the most of my experience and it's one of the best things I've ever done, would highly recommend it and will certainly look to do it again in future!!



Certainly a very fun afternoon, the centre itself is set in beautiful grounds with many other military vechicals to see. We went on a very warm and sunny day, perhaps more mud would have been better-but thats hardly the companys fault!


We had great fun! After the experience my little 5 year old nephew was aloud to have a look aroud the tank and fire a paintball. He loved it! The staff was very helpful.
