Overseas Travel Is Now Increasing – Will You Be Visiting Diggerland UK?

As all of the existing travel restrictions to the UK have now been lifted, will you be planning a much needed family trip? Diggerland UK Theme Park is one of the most unique days out in the UK, so make sure you add it to your to-do list!


When COVID-19 struck in 2020 it affected the tourism industry massively. Everything came grinding to a halt and shut until further notice. After such a difficult period we are so incredibly happy to be coming out the other side and better than ever!

According to VisitBritain’s latest annual forecast, the volume of inbound tourism to the UK is on the rise. For 2022, inbound visits to the UK are expected to increase to 21.1 million people. As well as spending estimates to rise to £16.9 billion! Both of these are up over 50% in contrast to 2019 stats.

Will you also be part of these stats?


Diggerland UK Theme Park is the only construction themed attraction in the UK. Which means you’ll have to make the time to visit us, with your digger mad children. Once you visit once, you’ll be coming back time and time again with the whole family.  


If you’re travelling from afar then it’s best to arrange accommodation as soon as you’re planning on visiting. Luckily for our visitors, we can recommend some fantastic places to stay in the local area.
