A great day out driving diggers, good variety of machines to drive, staff friendly and helpful, especially the chatty Safari Mitsubishi driver. Clearly mainly aimed at up to young teens, who I think would really like the opportunity to drive all the machines and the 4x4. The appeal could easily be extended to older teens and the whole concept developed... More

We decided to visit Diggerland as it was half way home and had been enjoyed by a friend 2 years ago. We went as a group of 2 parents, 2 grandparents a baby and 4 year old twins. When we got to the entrance and realised we would be paying £120 for the twins to run around, we just left... More

A fantastic day at Diggerland this week. Great variety of rides and activities. We spent about 4 hours there on a quiet day and our son of 4 was able to go on most rides. Opportunities to drive lots of diggers and similar vehicles. Would definitely go again. Great customer service.

If Diggers aren't your kids passion then this really struggles to entertain the younger members. Staff great and the diggers are great - just not enough there to keep the whole family happy.

Hi there, Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that you did not feel there was enough to entertain the younger members.

This is expensive to get in, but £5.50 in Tesco vouchers gets one person in so using this method makes it well worth it and good value, as the admission price if £20 per person. You can see why once you're in there though as the running costs and upkeep of it must be huge! It is well laid around... More

Brilliant for all ages. we took our three children aged 3, 5 and 9 and there was something for each of them. We stopped there on our way home from our seaside holiday in Devon and it was the perfect end to our holiday. The food was good and there was indoor soft play next to the seating area. The... More

Plenty of parking and easy to find. If the weather is good there is a large range of activities, all digger related. For very young children there is a Little Tikes play area and for children aged 4+ they will be able to independently use many of the diggers. The play park was enjoyed by the children and the site... More

We visited with our 3, 6 and 8 year old boys. We all had a fantastic day. The staff are really lovely. We got there early thinking it would be a massive place with loads to do but in reality you don't need a full day there as it's not huge.

We visited Diggerland today with our grandchildren aged 5&3. We couldn't have had a better time and were lucky , given their ages, that most schools had finished their holidays.

Visited here on the way home from our short break to Torquay. My 3 year old loved the place, and it wasn't a bad day out.
