A few weeks ago on the final day of the season until it reopens in February again to the public, we enjoyed an incredible day playing with diggers at Diggerland in Yorkshire. Yep you read that right, I along with the kids got up in some massive diggers and had a play and it was the most fun we’ve had in ages.

Having visited before, it was pretty awesome to treat the kids to another trip, made even better by the fact we were reviewing (thanks Hannah of Mums’ Days for recommending us!) The Yorkshire based Diggerland is in Wakefield so just a short drive from Leeds for us too.

There’s something so empowering about getting up in a big ol’ digger and clugging through the mud and there was lots to do from the toddler years and above!

I think I’ve found a new vocation! What do you think, is yellow my colour?

We also rode on trains and discovered dinosaurs off the beaten track-

Raced on tracks and laughed until our faces hurt…

A perfect end to a joyous day.

Diggerland reopens to the public on February 14th 2015.

We were given complimentary day passes in return for this honest review.

    It is nice to see photos from a different Diggerland and love that you caught the sunset over the park. It is a really fun day out

    If somebody had asked me if I wanted to go to a place called Diggerland, I would have said definitely no. But after seeing these photos, I really want to go. I totally don’t think it’s just for boys – I really fancy a go and so did Anya when I showed her the pictures which are stunning as always x

    Oh this looks like such a fantastic day out and something I hadn’t thought of visiting at this time of year x

    Oh wow, Louis would wee himself with excitement! Too funny seeing you behind the wheel of a JCB hon! Definitely think your day job is the more glamourous you! Love the pics as ever, the boys all look like they had a whale of a time, even Peter! xxx

    This looks like a must do for 2015! We’re all about the diggers in this household. Like the fact they can do the driving themselves but you can still have little ones.
