Gift Aid

gift aid

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 this only applies to individual and family tickets, not larger groups.

Tesco Clubcard Vouchers

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


Because your visit is accompanied by a real archaeologist, our tours are timed. You can just turn up and join a tour or, especially during busy periods, we would suggest that you pre-book on 01904 615505 to make sure you are guaranteed to join in the fun.

Alternatively you can pre-book your visit to DIG or any of its sister attractions and events using our online booking service.

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.
