I propose a meet at Bovington Tank Museum.

You just wanted an excuse to use that smiley, didn't you?

That's just down the road from Monkey World. Which I always thought should be combined with the tank museum to make the ultimate visitor attraction.

Google tells me I could get there in little over 3 hours (about the same to Bletchley), so I could make it three.
Though I see they have 'dressing up' sessions, which I think Mike should avoid...

One thought -- this museum is not far from Bournemouth/Weymouth so any thoughts of a meet up there should possibly avoid Olympic time, as the A31 and other road in the area might be chocka with people going to see the sailing events at Weymouth.

I see that 30th June/1st July is Tankfest weekend. All the moving tanks that you could hope for* plus lots of other stuff.

However, seeing the museum properly is a few hours worth of the day, so having the display outside at the same time would be a waste. I wonder if a whole weekend might be the answer....



*I realise that for some people this might be the number '0'.

You can get quite emotional about them, can you?

It's easy to cry-o'er-tank.

Family holiday one year my granddad (who is still living during the blitz) went to the tank museum, some people went to monkey world and I went to see rise of the planet of the apes.

I will be in Edinburgh from 15 - 21 August.
I will of course have about 6 billion family obligations, but I would also love to meet up with any forummers who fancy a jaunt north of the border. I do realise that this is full on festival time, so it might be a bit chancy. If it doesn't happen, tant pis - I just thought I would throw the idea out there.

I'll make a mighty effort to meet you there, filo. Would be nice, somewhere near the Grass Market?

Is it legal North of the Border, then?
