We had a family day out yesterday and visited Diggerland. We arrived at 10.00am when the park opened and didn't leave until 3.00pm. The queues for rides was minimal and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. Nice areas for families to have picnics and the toilets and baby change area were spotless.

We went here for my son's 7th birthday. There was also my wife and I, our 9 year old daughter, and both sets of grandparents. We got free tickets through Tesco Clubcard Vouchers, so I didn't pay much attention to the admission prices. However, I did notice adult tickets were £19.95 and over-65s tickets were £9.95.

We had great day out at Diggerland to celebrate our youngest fourth birthday. The children (and adults) loved playing on the diggers and other attractions. However we visited during the Easter holidays (the Thursday before the Easter Bank Holiday Weekend) but were disappointed with the amount of queuing to access the rides. It was very busy, it was after all... More

A very cold welcome - left in the freezing rain by staff and manager who would not let us wait inside the lobby due to `insurance reasons`- so Diggerland speak to your insurers or build a shelter!
