I am looking to make a day trip from London to the Tank Museum in Bovington, Dorset. As it stands, it appears the best way without driving is the hourly South West Trains service to Weymouth (on the South Western Mainline) stopping at Wool Railway Station for 11GBP on an advance single.
My question is: Are there faster or more convenient ways to get to the Bovington Tank Museum? Would it be more sensible to stop at Wareham Railway Station where there are two trains per hour to and from Waterloo? I intend on taking a cab from either railway station. I also intend to be making the journey on a weekday morning, and I will return late in the afternoon.
Any suggestions or hints would be greatly appreciated. I apologize if this is the wrong forum to post in, but the Dorset forum sees considerably less traffic than the London forum.
