Fantastic fun. Would recommend everyone to have a go. Our team included both ages and sexes from 50 year old lady (me) to 19 year old boys and girls and we all just never stopped smiling. I'm still buzzing from the experience

This is simply one of the best days out I can remember having. If you like big noisy vehicles, the aroma of oil and car smoke drifting around a picturesque landscape, then this is for you. The instructors are great, and you end up doing stuff in huge vehicles that you never imagined an office jockey would end up doing.... More

Having driven out to the area in a 432 Armoured Personnel Carrier, and following a comprehensive briefing, I had 3 laps at the controls of the 432, then 2 laps in a CET (very... More

Had a wonderful day out with these guys and girls. A present from my wife via Red Letter Days, I had a great time driving armoured vehicles, clay pigeon shooting, firing a musket and a mortar. Great food and great company. Well run by very experienced people, all the activities were top notch. YOU NEED TO TRY THIS!!!

I bought a Full Monty package for my husband for our 10th Wedding Anniversary. I bought a voucher through Buyagift and booking was very easy. As Full Monty days only run once a month, I thought we may have to wait to get booked in. We booked mid-September for 24th Sept. Vanessa was very prompt at responding to my husbands... More
