I was taken here as a birthday surprise to visit my family and was very excited at the prospect of getting up close and personal with them. Unfortunately, the weather was terrible and we were unsure about whether to actually enter as we had an open ticket that could be used on any chosen day. After speaking to a member... More

This is the second time we have visited but this time we were a wider family with an age range of 7yrs-61yrs including teenage boys! Everyone found great entertainment during the day as we learnt lots about the monkeys and were able to observe them in their habitat It's wonderful how close you can be to these wonderful animals and...

Costs £7.50 to get in, children under 3 are free. The walk around the forest is really interesting and great fun to see the monkeys in their social groups. Overall we spent around 60 - 90 minutes there so dont expect to spend the whole day there. Well worth the entrance fee as our son LOVED it!

Visited Trentham Monkey Forest in the summer and had such a good time. All the staff are so friendly, and the talks and feeds they did are truly amazing. I would highly recommend visiting.

One of a kind attraction, it was fascinating to see the monkeys interacting in their natural habitat. Informative talks & signs around the park. Would recommend. Food is pricey in on site restaurant so take a picnic.

This is a great way to see the monkeys able to roam free. It is fun spotting them in the trees or sitting on a bench in the grounds. The monkeys are very tame and sometimes if you sit still will come and sit beside you.

Had a fun morning out with my kids. Pleasant walk and fun to see the monkeys playing/fighting/preening. Restaurant/cafe actually pretty good compared to most at similar places.
