About The Tank Museum

This registered charity establishment houses the world’s finest collection of historically significant tanks. Here, you and your beloved can wed surrounded by unique pieces of history and scenic landscape.

Facilities and Capacity

The Tank Museum offers spacious indoor and outdoor event areas, ideal for hosting your entire day of wedding celebrations on-site. Exchange vows in the open-air under the canopy that overlooks the display arena here. Up to 1,000 guests can witness your ceremony from the surrounding gently sloping lawns. Host a relaxed drinks reception in The Mezzanine, which offers views of the Purbeck Hills on one side, and overlooks the Tank Story Hall on the other. Here, guests can mingle, sip champagne, and explore the various exhibits while you have your wedding photos taken. For your wedding breakfast and evening reception, The Cold War Hall offers an abundance of space that can be set up in the layout of your choice. This room features a display of Cold War tanks that can serve as a unique backdrop for your occasion. It is also located next to the Battlegroup Afghanistan exhibition. Up to 310 guests can be accommodated within this space for a seated meal. Smaller spaces, such as the Sherman & Churchill Suites can be utilised as get-ready rooms or intimate ceremony spaces.

    Fantastic Day!

    Our teenager chose the venue as it is his favourite place. We were not disappointed. There's not many people who Cam say we got married next to a world war 2 Tank.
    They couldn't do enough for us, went above and beyond, you will not be disappointed.
    If you like the tank museum it's the place to get married! Will never forget our special day thanks to these guys.......
