At Diggerland, we provide a unique experience for families and friends, and take pride in that we have something for everyone in the group. After all, where else can you say, “I got to drive a JCB”?

Things to do in Durham – Diggerland of course!

If you have children that are digger obsessed, or a big kid (otherwise known as a parent) that has always dreamt of driving their own digger, then look no further.

We have an array of 20 rides and drives as well as additional activities to provide your family with the most unforgettable experience.

Take a ride together as a family on the ultimate Spindizzy attraction, where a Komatsu PC210 will lift you up in the air and spin you around. Yes, you read that correctly!

Or perhaps you can all enjoy breathtaking views like you’ve never seen before from our Skyshuttle ride. All you need to do is hop into your seat, and the operator will safely raise you 50 feet up in the air! Who knew that Durham could look even more stunning from that high?

You might be the calmer type of person, whereby Diggerland offers a range of low key attractions. You can sit back and enjoy maneuvering your way around in a Dumper Truck, or let someone else take the wheel and give you a tour on our Safari

We have a variety of different attractions catered to suit all members of the family. But don’t just take our word for it, see for yourself what one of our customers said on Trip Advisor.
