If you are a UK taxpayer, you can help us further by turning your donation into a Gift Aid donation at no extra cost to you, which allows us to claim an extra 25p for every £1 you spend from the Government.

Please note that Tesco Vouchers are valid on single admission prices only and are not valid with any of the joint tickets or Pastport.


Your visit around DIG is led by a real archaeologist, so all tours are timed. We would always advise pre-booking your places in advance, as we cannot guarantee any walk-in spaces on arrival.

Pre-booking means you and your family are guaranteed to join the fun!

Book Now

Alternatively you can call our Reservation Team on 01904 615505 (Mon to Fri 9am to 5pm, Sat-Sun 9am to 1pm)

Upon pre-booking, your ticket will automatically be upgraded to a ‘Fast-Track’ admission. This incurs an additional £1 on top of the initial booking fee (£2 total) entitling you to guaranteed entry on arrival at your designated time-slot and ensuring peace of mind when planning your visit. The additional charge is waived for customers selecting our special five attraction “Pastport” ticket where only the standard booking fee will apply.

Pre-booking your visit allows you to choose what time you visit (subject to availability) and permits you to jump any queue at the attraction.
