Bovington tank museum is in Dorset and about 10 miles from Poole and Bournemouth. It is I believe the largest collection of military vehicles in the world, and has a number of unique vehicles. If you take a look at the Bovington tour I did here it will give you a good idea of what there is to see, and the collection is growing all the time as more vehicles are put on display. I would suggest waiting until the tank fest which is held there every year around June/July.

Thanks for the answer Darren.
Looks like it is a must-see museum, is it far from London?

Thanks for this walkaround Darren.
Could please tell me where this AMX13 is preserved ?
For your information, it looks like an early chassis of the 2A type (2 return rollers, single headlights, sloped side bins and some other less noticeable features).
