My husband had got tickets using his credit card points and to be honest we only went because of this and as the tickets were due to run out. So we went over on a Sunday afternoon with our two girls aged 3 and 5. We had an amazing time far outweighed our expectations. My husband and me were dragging... More

My 3 year old loved this place - as did his Dad! As long as your child is 1 metre tall your kids can go on almost all the rides and there's a great selection of diggers, trucks, and other fairground type rides (but all with a construction theme). If your child is below 1 metre e.g. 2 years of... More

I've been to Diggerland twice before with various grandchildren and they've loved it. This time it was Grandad's turn! Ninety minutes of the Monster Digger experience. If you have any enthusiasm for things mechanical this is a must. Instructor, Steve, was very patient ( he needed to be) and before long reach, lift, and scooping were all co ordinated.The final...

This was our first visit to diggerland and both our kids, aged 3 & 6, had a great time. They were able to have a go on most of the 'rides', which were fairly basic and easy to use, quickly with minimal queuing. As others have said, the negative for us was the price. For a family of 4, booked... More

We went to Diggerland on the October half term deal so paid £9.99 per person. When we arrived we were a little underwhelmed and thought we'd be done within the hour. We were wrong. We had a lovely day there from 10.15 to 17.00. In our party there were 4 adults and 5 children between the ages of 3 and... More
