I love monkeys and loved my visit here the staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. The monkeys all look happy and healthy. My son enjoyed having a go at answering the questions as you walk around. The only downside is there is nowhere undercover to eat if you take a picnic. If it rains as it did when we were... More

Loved walking round and seeing the monkeys not in cages. Seeing the baby monkeys was great was my daughters favourite part. We only spent afew hours here, I think the entry price is fair considering how many monkeys they have to look after. The only downside is the cafe which I do think is quite pricey and the food wasnt... More

I really like this place, it's a unique experience to see a monkey walk across the path in front of you. The setup of the place is really nice, clean facilities a reasonably priced cafe, and good picnic and play areas. The only downside for me was the cost - I visited with my mum (classed as a senior), and... More

As the weather was not being kind we delayed the visit until the rain had stopped. At last the sun came out, was not sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. So glad the monkeys are freely walking around. The guides are knowledgable and very helpful. I really enjoyed this it was so nice just watching the monkeys and... More

Monkey forest is a great day out, even when its a bit chilly! Myself and my god daughter had a great afternoon walking around the park. From a biologist as myselfs point f view the conservation aspect is great! 6 young babies born this year for this endangered species. Great little adventure park for kids to play on after a... More

I took my stepdaughter, 6yo and 5mth old here and it took us about an hour to walk around. We stopped and had a coffee and muffins and the boy had a kids sandwich deal. Overall we enjoyed it but for the cost of gettin in you would expect more to do. We did have the feeding chat from one... More

Went here last week, good day out worth the money although something I didnt consider they're all the same type of monkey so abit samey after a while, however theyre very cute with newborns to see too so doesnt get boring. Also has a cafe and few different playgrounds, trampolines were there too when we went.

We spent about 1.5 hours on the monkey trail and really enjoyed seeing the monkeys up close. The staff were really knowledgable and stopped us for ad hoc chats about the monkeys while we were wandering around the park,they provided lots of interesting info which added to our trip. After leaving the monkey enclosure there were a couple of kids... More

Visited last week with a group of young people with physical and learning disabilities. It's a great facility - good picnic area so saved money on buying food there, toilets clean and well services. The monkeys were very entertaining and great staff are on hand to give info and answer questions. The feeding talks are very interesting too. I don't... More

My husband, myself, our daughter and 10 year old grandson have just had a lovely morning at the Monkey Forest. The monkeys are delightful, especially the babies,who were very cute. We watched the talk at 11.15, which was very informative. The staff that you see on the way round are very friendly and very knowledgeable. The forest is a lovely... More
