Didnt see many keepers around to speak about the animals. Cafe was a bit basic, outdoor cafe was only doing sausage rolls (that were burnt) and tea and coffee. I know this was out of season being January but there were not many monkeys out to see. Prices should be lower out of season to reflect this. Arrived at 10am... More

This is an impressive rescue centre. They take in apes from around the world that have been abused, orphaned or used in the name of scientific research. The pens are impressive, they're large and provide excellent accommodation. Staff are friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Allow plenty of time to stop and watch the animals and listen to the many short, but... More

A fascinating place to visit for the family. All the monkeys are cared for beautifully and will definitely put on a show for you. We got there early as the doors open and it fulled up quickly. A play park, picnic area and cafe on site. Great day out.

I became a fan by watching the TV series, and felt that I knew many of the primates. As a Xmas present last year I was given an adoption certificate, meaning I was 'mum' to Hananya, an Alpha male chimp. This gave me free entry to the centre. My husband, son, daughter in law and their baby girl went along... More

This was a birthday treat for me. I have always loved seeing the TV programme, to actually be there was fantastic. We arrived before it opened and had a parking marshal guide us where to park. Parking was good (grass) plenty of room and clearly sign posted to get there. A top tip is to arrive early as all the... More

We were on our way to Weymouth for a few days away over Christmas.. It was a beautiful day, a bit cold but lovely and sunny. We have watched some of the stories on TV , but you have no idea what a fabulous place it is until you see it all.. We were mesmerised with the work and dedication... More

We first visited the park last August, and had an enjoyable day. Since then I have been watching 'Monkey Life' on tv and wanted to return. We visited again on 2nd January - we arrived at 10am. The carpark was already filling up. On entry we decided that we would like adopt Sally which means we get free entry to... More

This is a really lovely sanctuary where you can see the monkeys are well looked after and protected and their stories are shared with the visitors aswell as educating you about their lifestyle. The facilities were all clean, and eco friendly and there were plenty places to sit down, have picnics and run around for children. Prices were a little... More
