Monkey Forest is completely unique to the UK. It is the only place that you can walk amongst 140 Barbary macaques roaming free in 60 acres of beautiful English Forest. Walking in the park transports you into a different world through close contact with the monkeys.

Amazing place, and amazing value. The staff are really knowledgeable and are very helpful. Great for kids and adults alike. Tip though, bring your own lunch. Cafe is pretty expensive!

Well this was a brilliant visit, I was overwhelmed to see such amazing animals living in a perfect environment without any cages or dangers, these little guys do actually walk round in between people and are truly at home! Such a pleasure to see these little guys and I have to say the guides and staff around the park were... More

My breakfast with the monkeys was fantastic, I had a great time riding in the buggy to go and feed the monkeys, I went in an hour before the public, I had one to one with the senior guide. We fed the monkeys, apples, potatoes,oranges, seed and monkey pellets. I saw at very close quarters the new babies, one only... More

I went to the monkey forest with my boyfriend not long ago as he loves monkeys. It was clear from the start that they monkeys are extremely well looked after within the forest and that they are the first priority. The only disappointment was that you couldn't see the monkeys in any other habitat other than outside. Would be great... More

We went there with 6 children aged between 4 and 12 and they all enjoyed watching the monkeys play and climb tree's. we wasn't sure what to expect but it was a lovely afternoon. not much more to do there once you have been in the monkeys enclosure. only thing we wasn't happy with was the prices on the food...

We have been wanting to visit monkey forest for a while as all the advertising we have seen makes it look a fantastic day out with the kids. We spent over an hour travelling and as we got there people were already leaving which didn't bode well. We queued for 20-30 minutes to get in (knew it would be busy... More

We went on a Saturday morning in May. Busy, small queue to get in but as the park is big you can easily get around and see the monkeys without other guests spoiling the view!! Interesting regular talks about the groups of monkeys and the staff and very knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions. Clean toilets on site, ample... More

We went in a family group of five adults and had a truly wonderful experience. The forest is set out with two feeding areas where the macaques regularly go for treats so you can't fail to see plenty of these beautiful creatures. The staff are around the entire attraction to give you lots of information about the monkeys and the... More

Went here today. What a lovely place. Definitely worth arriving early as when we were leaving at 12.30 the car park was busy. Spent a couple of hours here. Reasonable pricing and under 3 free. The play parks are great. The cafe looked full, but there's a nice picnic area, so may be best to take a picnic. Suitable for... More
