Have you ever seen a huge mechanical digger digging up the road and wished you could have a go? Well now you can! Diggerland offers everyone from children of five years old the chance to ride in and operate real mechanical diggers, or join in dumper truck races, under strict supervision, of course. As well as the diggers there are lots of other things to entertain, including computer games, bouncy castles, a sandpit, clowns, and a licensed bar for the adults. Food is available. This is a truly original and unusual day out. You can also host children's parties and other events at the venue. Check website for more details and exact dates. Call +44 871 227 7007 for more.
