School Coach Trips to Diggerland

A structured school trip, club or group visit to a DIGGERLAND Adventure Park can be as educational as it is enjoyable and entertaining.

At DIGGERLAND, students & pupils and other visiting club & groups’ members get to enjoy hands-on experience of driving and/or operating real diggers and dumpers in a variety of fun and innovative ways as well as enjoying thrills and spills on all the other specially adapted rides and drives.
