The minimum group size is 10, there is no maximum.

If you opt for a guided tour, the maximum number of people who can be accommodated for 1 tour guide is 25 people. If you bring more people the group may need to be split into two for your tour, therefore requiring two guides. The exception to this is the First World War Mark IV Tank Tour, which requires 2 guides per 25 people.

Groups can pay in advance by either bank transfer, cheque or card. If you pay in advance by bank transfer, minimum numbers must be confirmed and payment made 7 days before the visit. After this time you can add extra people to the booking but you will not be able to reduce the number on the booking.

Any payments by bank transfer should use your booking confirmation number as a reference.

If you prefer to pay on the day you can do so, but in this case we will only accept cash, card or cheque. All group members must arrive together and make a single, joint payment in order to take advantage of the group rate.

Organisations can also pay by invoice after visit.

The group rate admission does not include an Annual Pass, but you can upgrade on the day if you would like to visit again.

Uniformed youth groups such as Scout, Cubs, Guides and Cadets can benefit from the group rate. One group leaders can go free for every ten children.

You are welcome to enjoy your birthday at The Tank Museum, however there is no children’s birthday party package currently offered. We please ask that groups of children are properly supervised by an appropriate number of adults. We recommend a ratio of 1:10 for secondary school aged pupils and 1:6 for primary aged. You are welcome to use the café, restaurant and soft play area and can also bring your own food and cake. Please just ensure that no candles are lighted within the Museum as this can set off our fire alarms.

For a more luxurious experience on your special occasion we are able to offer private room hire and bespoke catering, please see our venue hire offering.
