I'd not been to the Tank Museum in Bovington, Dorset (see here) since I was a child, so it was nice to visit. They've had a complete facelift since the last time I went and it looks amazing. I especially loved the 'War Horse to Horsepower' exhibition.
I won't say a lot more about it, but if you like history, tanks, explosions and planes, then it's worth a visit.
Tankfest is annual but it was only for pre-booked ticket holders, there weren't tickets available on the gate. This, in my opinion, was a good thing. It was a small-ish area, so it felt pretty crammed. That being said there was enough seating and different things were going on at different times, the museum was open and there were plenty of places to get food and drink if you needed!
Here are a few pictures.
