Diggerland is Now Closed for The Winter, but The Fun Doesn’t Stop There!

Have you been thinking about booking a family day out to Diggerland soon? Unfortunately all 4 of our UK parks closed for the winter on Sunday 30th October, after an exciting weekend finale. Worry not, the fun doesn’t stop there though! We are in full swing leading up to Christmas, as well as the park preparations for next season. 

We have plenty for you all to look forward to, and enjoy!


After a fun packed summer, exciting October half term and a busy Halloween weekend, our mascots Duggy and Dotty, are taking a well deserved break! They’ve thoroughly enjoyed welcoming guests to the park in 2022, and meeting plenty of construction mad families. However, they will most likely be booking a holiday, and getting ready for the festive season ahead. 

Our staff and Management team are still working hard throughout the winter period, despite the park being closed. They will soon be packing away the construction machinery, carrying out safety checks and fixing any maintenance issues. We will also be looking at replacing some of the machines for newest models ahead of the 2023 season. If you visit us in 2023, keep an eye out for shiny new machines, ready to be used to dig and drive!


Although you’re not able to book a date for next season, we do have the option of buying gift vouchers. If you’re attempting to finish the Christmas shopping soon to avoid the stress, then our Diggerland gift vouchers could be the perfect gift for anyone digger mad. So which gift vouchers are available?

General Admission Vouchers

General admission vouchers are a fan favourite with everyone. Whether you’re trying to find a gift for your child, or want to plan a day out for the whole family, then this is the best choice. Even the grandparents can come!

Currently, you can buy a Diggerland gift voucher for the following:

2 people: £51.90

3 people: £77.85

4 people: £103.80

As the name suggests the general admission vouchers will admit the listed amount of people into Diggerland. Once in, visitors will be able to access and enjoy all of the 20 main rides and drives. 

Please note that the voucher will cover anyone that is 90cm or taller. Anyone under this height will enter free of charge, so make sure you measure anyone visiting prior to purchasing!

Adult Experience Days

Want to get some extra one to one time with a specific time of machine instead? If you’re age 17 or over then our Adult Experience Days will allow you to experience a unique, fantastic day out at Diggerland. 

Visitors can choose from the following Diggerland gift vouchers:

Dumper Racing: Race against the clock, as well as other competitors to reach the finish line first. Hope aboard your JCB skidsteer of choice, and race your way round our course, avoiding any obstacles and time penalties. Sound like your sort of race? View the Dumper Racing in action.

Individual and Group JCB Experience: Have you always dreamed of operating your very own JCB 3CX backhoe loader? Well now you can, well for 90 minutes anyway! Recipients will be able to utilise all major functions of the machine, and dig to their heart’s content. You’ll also have a choice of an individual or group experience. Find out more here

Monster Digger Experience: Another 90 experience, however this time it is operating a Komatsu PC210. Climb up into the cab of a 21 tonne digger, and get the hang of operating the machine using a variety of levels and pedals. Will you be able to dig an impressive hole, or does it look easier than first thought? You’ll just have to wait and see! Buy a Monster Digger Experience voucher today!

All of our vouchers can also be purchased on third party websites including BuyAGift, Red Letter Days and Virgin Experience Days

There is also a 12 month expiry date on all of our gift vouchers here at Diggerland. Make sure you check out our opening dates when selecting a visit date as we are a seasonal attraction. We would hate for you to miss out, however we do offer anyone who has purchased a gift voucher directly from Diggerland the choice to extend it if needed.

We understand that most people love to open a physical gift voucher, however some prefer to just have it emailed to them instead. Luckily for you, here at Diggerland we offer both options!

If you give our bookings team a call on: 01634 711 711 we would be happy to assist with purchasing a gift voucher. Please bear in mind that we can only process postal vouchers over the phone. Otherwise e-vouchers and postal vouchers can be bought on our website

For those that need the vouchers for a particular date, for example birthdays or Christmas, we would recommend buying them as soon as possible. Unfortunately, with the current Royal Mail postal strikes throughout November and December, delays may be possible. 


We are busy finalising the opening dates for our 2023 season so unfortunately we will be keeping you waiting for just a bit longer! 

To give you a rough idea we are planning to open around mid February in time for the half term… So keep February relatively free if you want to be one of the first people to visit our back in 2023.

Check back soon to find out more. Alternatively, sign up to our newsletter to be the first to receive the latest news, offers and Diggerland information!
