Half term fun at Diggerland UK!

Have you been waiting to visit Diggerland UK?

For families, kids and adults alike, the joy of yet another bank holiday in May brings a smile to everyone’s face! 

Not only that, the long bank holiday weekend is also the start of half term for the majority of UK schools. We can already hear the sense of dread in most parent’s voices. Fear not, we have your back, and the ultimate day out for the whole family is just around the corner. 

Everyone knows that bank holidays weekends are made for fun family days out. Want to know more about a day out to Diggerland?


Forget going to the park, or having a picnic, Diggerland UK is the perfect day out for the whole family to experience. Research shows that 7 in 10 parents say they find it difficult to keep their kids entertained during school holidays. Our UK theme park is the only place where children can operate and drive construction machinery. Kids will never complain of boredom when they visit us!

We have 20 different rides and drives that are included within your entry price. Enough attractions to guarantee a full day’s outing. So which rides and drives are on offer?

Rides & Drives

We have a wide range of outdoor attractions for our guests to enjoy, including the notorious JCB 3CX, Skyshuttle and our personal favourite, Spindizzy

That’s right, you and your family can enjoy driving a JCB 3CX round a specially adapted track. For all the kiddies that love JCB, you will need to be over the height of 90cm to ride.

All of our Diggerland UK parks have a range of Komatsu mini diggers, and giant diggers scattered around the park. If you think you’ve got what it takes to dig for treasure, hook a duck or knock down all the skittles. Make sure you get in the queue!

Groundshuttle is the perfect attraction for groups wanting to ride together! Enjoy a bumpy ride on a telehandler around our dusty, dirt track. How fun does that sound?!

Indoor attractions

Our indoor soft play area has been closed up until last weekend, and it’s re-opened just in time for half term week. If the outdoor attractions weren’t enough, let your children run around, and let off some energy in our indoor soft play area. Grab a coffee while you wait at our on site café, you’ve earned it!


Diggerland UK has been listed as a ‘Good to Go’ covid friendly day out, by Visit England.

We have implemented extra health and safety measures to help keep you all as safe as possible. When you visit Diggerland UK, our visitors will expect:

  •  A reduction in our visitor numbers
  • Social distancing measures are in place around the park
  • Face coverings will be required when indoors and on certain designated rides
  • Contactless payments are advised where possible
  • All visitors will undergo a non-invasive temperature check on arrival
  • All Diggerland parks are deep cleaned including any touch points and machines. We do suggest customers also bring their own hand sanitiser as well

We always want our guests to have a fantastic time when they visit Diggerland, but we always want them to feel completely safe and at ease too. All of our covid restrictions can be found here


As we are a seasonal attraction, Diggerland UK would normally be open every weekend. However now that half term is upon us once again, we will be open every day that week, how exciting!

We always advise our customers to check our opening dates before purchasing any tickets, just to make sure they know when we are open. 

If you’re planning a fun, family day out during the half term, we hope Diggerland theme park comes to mind. We are selling out fast so be sure to pre-book your tickets ahead of your visit soon.

We will allow pay-on-the-day customers, but only if we still have ticket availability. So, we would highly recommend pre-booking in advance as it will guarantee your entry.
