Ok so i might get stuck going to my brothers graduation somewhere around Cornwall this summer. So that means getting to Heathrow/Stansted, renting a car and driving down there(or maybe train i dunno yet). Is there any cool museums along that route? I like tanks, planes and generaly mechanical stuff :p

Yeah - Bovington in Dorset.  The British tank museum - it's massive and got pretty much everything that's worth having, from WW1 to some modern stuff, and of course it has Tiger 131.

Also, if you can fly into Stanstead then Duxford is definitely worth a look.  It's got planes (obviously!) but also loads of tanks, TDs and AFVs.  It's really impressive.

Bovington is awesome. I went there for a weekend just for the tank museum and ended up going on both Saturday and Sunday. On Sunday they also let us into some of the tanks (MkIV from the first world war and a Chieftain, although I'm too tall to fit in the last one but my friends still went).
