A surprising find whilst travelling in Leicestershire. An extensive collection of tanks and APCs dating from WE2 to modern times. The exhibits are a bit jammed together, but there are fresh spaces being developed for future expansion.
There are a number of Scorpion light tanks that you can book a have a go at driving… in fact, there seemed to be more of them at Armourgedden than in our modern British army!

Having cancelled our European battlefield tour (can’t think why?!). We visited Bletchley Park and was looking for other things in the area. Trip advisor and various searches revealed this gem.

A great collection of equipments and you get up close and personal to it all. A little poetic licence on some of the displays but as long as you aren’t a button counter it’s a great trip for kids.

You can easily lose a couple of hours there but not take up the day, unless you want to of course. They were running tank driving experiences while we were there but didn’t see them in action. They also offer tank paintball, archery and air rifle shooting.

Cafe is reasonably priced and you get a good view of the track and arena if you’re lucky enough to watch the action. Add that with the non offensive entry fee, we enjoyed ourselves.

Bought as a family Christmas present and ended up at Armourgeddon on Fathers’ Day. Easy to find and very well organised. Clear social distancing and simple but enforced safety. Booked for the tank paintball, opportunity to drive a ‘tank’ and then fire paintballs at your opponents in a drive and fire battle. Fun from start to finish, Wayne and Will our instructors were excellent and ensured we got the most from the day. There is also a really good military vehicle museum covering WW2 and the Cold War - arrive early so you can appreciate the collection. A really good day out - thank you Armourgeddon!

£9 each including children is too much for a very small collection.

A variety of tanks and equipment, but almost no interactive exhibits so not ideal for children.

Compared to other similar places this does not compete.

Tank rides are available for over 8’s only, and £30 each additional fee.

My fiancé booked the tank driving experience for me for xmas but due to covid had to wait until now to do it but it was worth the wait !
I had a fantastic time and loved every minute of it.
The staff are really nice people who explain everything so well, you feel everything is so well controlled but not restricted as you get to put an 18 ton vehicle through its paces.
Nick was my instructor who was also being assessed as an instructor on the day, and I must say was cracking bloke, very knowledgeable and professional and a nice guy to boot.
The museum has some great armoured vehicles and is well laid out. The baguettes from the little café were also nice and tasty.
To summarise, its a great experience with good people and I shall be back with my mates for my stag do.
reccomended.

A really enjoyable visit for anyone into army tanks, vehicles or World War II. We bought two experiences for our son’s 18th as he loves anything to do with WWII. He got to both drive a tank and then have a paintball battle firing balls from the canon. The staff are really friendly and knowledgeable. The whole visit was well organized. The museum is worth a visit too with lots of different vehicles and WWII memorabilia on display. A number of the tanks have been restored by the team.
Shout out to Nathan and Charles who looked after us. And Charles - your strategy in the battle worked with us winning 12-11 in hits!

This venue was so well placed to meet our friends before we had lunch at the White Lion pub. A great way to spend a couple of hours.

The museum was small but a little gem to view a few of the olden tanks from past. Then there was space outside to sit and view the tank range which my 1 year old definitely enjoyed.

The staff on site were great and given it is such a small location they catered really well for Covid and it felt comfortable and safe.

Great job

Visit with my brothers for a 40th birthday.
We had a fantastic day out with numerous activities including air rifles, archery, tank driving and clay pigeon shooting.
There was more on offer too - Quad biking and land rovers among others.

Staff were incredibly friendly and knowledgable.

The museum has a huge array of vehicles and war memorabilia. All the vehicles in the museum are fully functional too!

Great day out and will return.

I was given this tank driving experience as a Christmas present from my twin sister.
I have always wanted to have a go at driving a tank, definitely one for the bucket list & it certainly did not disappoint!
It was such a great afternoon, Alex was so friendly and knowledgable & nothing was too much of a problem.
I also had 3 members of my family as passengers on board, Alex was very patient & made sure we stopped & swapped everyone over!
There is also a tank museum, which we looked around before the driving & I know my dad was so impressed with how many tanks were in there!
Really friendly staff & atmosphere!
I absolutely loved it, and would highly recommend!
I will definitely be back, thank you so much Alex!
