A trip to Diggerland is a great opportunity for three people to have a huge amount of fun together. Ride in and drive different types of construction machinery including dumper trucks, mini diggers and giant diggers in a theme park dedicated to these heavy duty machines – it certainly makes for a day out with a difference. There are qualified instructors on hand to ensure safety and show you how these diggers work. We defy you not to feel like a king of the road when you sit in the control seat!
The park is open at weekends and bank holidays from February to the end of October and seven days a week during local school holidays. It closes during November, December and January.
Diggerland is predominantly an outdoor experience but, although rare, they may restrict some rides in the event of very poor weather.
The park opens at 10am and guests are free to stay until 5pm (or 4pm in February).
Numbers On Day:
Additional adults or children (over 90 cms) can pay on the day to enter Diggerland. The parks do not allow entry of dogs, with the exception of guide dogs. Why not take your own picnic?
Please dress for comfort and wear suitable footwear such as trainers or wellies. There is a chance that you may get a little muddy, so bringing a change of footwear is a good idea.
Exit the A1(M) at junction 62 and head west on the A690 into Durham, then follow the A691 signs to Consett. After six miles, turn left at the roundabout, signposted to Langley Park then turn right into Riverside Industrial Estate at Langley Park.
Children (under 13) must be accompanied and supervised by their guardian(s). Height restrictions apply on all rides/drives and those under 90cm are too small. Some children may also need to be accompanied on some rides/drives by an adult.
Diggerland does not permit the use of bbqs. Although not included in the price, empty tummies can be refuelled at The Dig Inn, with a selection of snacks, burgers, salads etc (be aware credit cards are not accepted in the food area).
