The Tank Museum is situated in the garrison village of Bovington, at the heart of the rural English county of Dorset.

LINSAY RD, BOVINGTON, WAREHAM BH20 6JC

The Tank Museum is in south Dorset and is signposted by the Brown tourist signs when approaching from Dorchester, Blandford, Weymouth and Poole.

The Tank Museum is about a 30-minute drive from these locations, about 45 minutes from Bournemouth and Salisbury, and about an hour from Southampton and Yeovil.

There is plenty of free parking on site for cars. Coaches can park anywhere in the ample car park, or alongside the Museum. Please find the map here.

Coach drivers get free entry and a £10 food and drink voucher to use at The Tank Museum restaurant.

Located very close to the South Coast, The Tank Museum has several nearby ferry ports. The Museum is a 45-50 minute drive from Portland Port, 30 minutes from Poole, and 90 minutes from Southampton and Portsmouth, and is four hours from Dover.

If you aren’t using a coach, all these towns have train stations approximately half an hour away from the port, with Poole running a shuttle bus service. There are also local taxi services who can take you to the town centre.

The Tank Museum’s nearest station is Wool (1.5 miles), which is on the South Western Railway mainline from London Waterloo to Weymouth. Trains are frequent in both directions, and whilst it is walkable in about 30 minutes, you may prefer using local taxi company (Garrison Cars, T: 01929 463395) to take you to and from the station. Train timetable here.

The Tank Museum’s is seasonally served by local bus services – although these are subject to change. For Special Events (TANKFEST & Tiger Day) there is a shuttle bus from Wool train station.
