February half term is coming (a bit faster than you might like), and we know that so many of you will be looking for family days out in Durham to keep the kids occupied over the holiday. If you’re excited by the idea of a day of adventure that’s close to home, you should consider a trip to our amazing Diggerland Durham park.
Under 100cm? Come in for free!
That’s right, we’ve changed our entry height requirements and now children that are under a metre tall can enter the park for free. Best of all, they’ll still be able to enjoy 15 of our 20 rides and drives with the help of a grown-up. Which is still more than enough to keep the kids entertained for an entire day (and give you the day off!).

Enjoy a ride on a JCB 3CX
A day at Diggerland Durham doesn’t just provide your children with the opportunity to drive diggers and dumper trucks. Up to four members of your family can take a trip in our JCB 3CX Backhoe Loader, with the help of one of our experienced marshals. You and your children could even have the opportunity to drive it yourself, as long as they reach the minimum height requirement of 110cm. Who knows, maybe a day out to Diggerland will inspire your child’s future career?
Race around on Go Karts
Nothing will get your children’s heart racing like a spin round the Diggerland Go Kart track. The Go Karts are ideal for all members of your family, as anyone from 80cm tall can join in the race (though riders between 80cm and 100cm will need to be accompanied by an adult). Allow your children and yourselves to fulfil their Mario Kart fantasies – just make sure you’re on the home straight before throwing a “banana” at your opponents!
Enjoy Valentine’s Day at Diggerland
Although Valentine’s Day is a tradition that originates from the Romans, we’ll be feeling the love at Diggerland Durham over the first week of half-term. This year, Valentine’s Day falls in the first week that we’re open. All of our marshals will be excited to reunite with Duggy and Dotty, who in turn will be over the moon to give you a cuddle to celebrate the day of love!
