My fiancé and myself took our grandchildren they loved it. The monkeys where roaming round some with new babies on their backs it is a very peaceful place the only downside is the very steep hill to see all around the park not very good as I have some walking difficulties. There is a nice sitting area by the cafe... More

Great for the kids - great picnic areas and you can feed the monkey's. great value if you are prepared to spend the whole day there. refreshments available if you need them but can be expensive

Was a nice day out as we hit to enjoy the fresh air in a nice environment... There are plenty of monkeys to see and they are pretty calm... The only down side was the strep downhill path towards the end of the walk, not really suitable for the elderly and you must wear appropriate shoes to be able to... More

Visited early in the morning just as they opened and I would say that this is the best time - it does get a little busy later and it's harder to get a photo without tourists in! However, although a little expensive, it is great fun, the monkeys are up close and personal and its easy to get a picture.... More

Great place with lovely monkeys . Good for children and families alike including couples. Enjoyed the wildlife and guides. Rude and ignorant members of staff serving food in cafe. Nice play area and seating outside. Lovely forest overall , shame about the rude and ignorant cafe staff.

We visited the monkey forest on a rainy Friday after having done the aerial extreme on the same premises. My son was very excited to see the monkeys however after 10 minutes he was unfortunately bored. Of course this is not a negative for the attraction but instead a demonstration of his attention span! Other than the monkey forest there... More

The price was reasonable for what you get, although for our family it wasn't a full days worth although you can get a dual ticket with nearby Trentham Gardens. The monkeys were entertaining and you could stay in the enclosure as long as you liked and go back in as often as you wanted. The staff were knowledgable and more... More

Don't waste your money here. The leaflets and marketing are misleading: they show a monkey walking with you but they only cross your path to get to the other side for 2 seconds. They don't want to be around humans. The walk took 30 minutes, too expensive for what it is! We counted 40 monkeys out of 140. The rest... More
