The Tank Museum & Tankfest

Date: Issue 126 - October 2023 Update: June 14, 2024

This time, our travel story will delve into the world of armored and tracked tanks. In contrast to other British travel chronicles revolving around cities like London and Edinburgh, our journey will take us to a more remote destination. We're heading to Bovington Camp in Dorset, Southern England, which is a 3–4-hour drive from London.

The Bovington Tank Museum is roughly the size of a royal palace, albeit a bit smaller when you consider that it houses hundreds of tanks for exhibition and storage. It's a veritable tank paradise, showcasing over 300 armored vehicles from nearly 30 countries, making it the largest tank collection in the world. What I find most impressive about this museum is that it offers something for everyone.
