For my 70th birthday, daughter and I travelled down to Winchester from Lancashire on the Friday. Stayed overnight as had to be at the site for 0830 on the Saturday. About 20 participants and their friends and family were welcomed by the very friendly organisers. Registration was straightforward and we were treated to a Safety brief which although very serious...

I bought this as a surprise birthday gift for my girlfriend. She likes anything different or out of the ordinary; which this certainly is. She didn't stop smiling all morning. There was a good safety briefing to begin with & then the drivers sperated into groups of five & given coloured tabbards to wear. My girlfriend had the pink tabbards,... More

All traces of nervousness and apprehension were dismissed by the warm welcome, careful briefing and good humour. Split into groups of six, Bonny was the only lady in her group and therefore following the maxim of 'Ladies First' she was first up. Up. up and away in her APC. She took to the sea of mud like a DUKW to... More

What a fantastic experience!!! Ignore the one or two complaints and listen the the massive majority of delighted people! You get to drive 4 different tracked vehicles with one to one instruction from extremely experienced instructors. In between you can enjoy as much free Tea, Coffee, Hot Chocolate or Oxo and homemade cake you can manage. There is also biscuits... More

To drive a tank was always a dream of mine so when my son and his girlfriend bought this experience for my birthday I was very excited. I chose The Tank Driving Company at Juniper Leisure as they offered a great range of vehicles: APC, Stormer, Abbott tank and the huge Chieftain. I was not disappointed! We were welcomed with...

We attended Juniper Leisure's tank driving afternoon over the weekend (3rd Septemebr 2016) This was originally a birthday present received by my wife but I wasn't about to sit and watch so I booked the same experience so we could have fun together! The route instructions were simple and we found the site quickly and easily, arriving in plenty of... More

The experience itself was very good ( or so my mum said ). We were told upon arrival by a lady who was possible the rudest person I have ever encountered that we had to pay £10 each to spectate. This was after a few weeks earlier being told that becasue we had to cancel due to a family death... More

We bought a tank experience for my mum for her 70th birthday and she asked us all to come. I don't mind admitting that I wasn't looking forward to it - I couldn't see the point of just standing around watching her drive a tank for a few minutes and having to pay £10 each for the privilege. I was... More
