Many kids get excited at just the thought of passing a building site and seeing all the JCB diggers, which to them are larger than life toys!


Fascinated by all of the machinery, little boys (and even girls) dream of sitting inside the cabs of diggers and hope their playrooms will one day come to life. Well the dream can come true at… Diggerland!


The Ultimate Adventure Theme Park Experience where children and adults alike can ride, drive and operate REAL diggers, dumpers and other full- size construction machinery. Located in Kent, Durham and Yorkshire, Diggerland is the perfect destination for action, fun and thrill packed family days out.


Diggerland is fun for all ages from four (subject to height restrictions) to 40-plus.With its 18 different rides and drives and an array of additional activities it’s the ideal theme park for groups of all sizes looking for something exciting and truly unique.


Get to grips with real JCBs and 180/360 excavators. Take a head-reeling turn or two on the Spindizzy. Rise to lofty heights and enjoy the views on the Skyshuttle. Enjoy a bone-rattling off-road ride on the Groundshuttle. Or simply have a go on the Dodgems and Go-Karts!


There are indoor and outdoor play areas, sandpits, coin-operated rides and much more where younger visitors can let off steam while their parents can just sit back, relax and watch the fun… or join in!
