Having enjoyed the TV series we wanted to visit Monkey World whilst in the area. Our day left us with the same feeling of an organisation which is trying to save primates and genuinely wanting to make their lives better. All the animals were well cared for and clearly had a lot to occupy them and keep their interest in... More

I have always wanted to visit Monkey World both as a child and now as an adult. I finally managed to get there with my partner and my brother going in with me. It was a really good price and there was loads of free parking. If you have children then the play areas are really great, not just the... More

Visited Monkey World with my Wife and 18 year old Step Son yesterday. There is ample parking and marshalls to direct you to free spaces, so all good on arrival. Entry fees were reasonable compared with other regional attractions and we were surprised at just how large the site was. There are 3 thoughtfully located cafes (another, 'the Watering Hole'...

Monkey world is a great day out, I go with my granddaughters who absolutley love it both have adopted a monkey which means they get in free for a year. They take a great interest in all the different monkeys there and never tire of going. It has plenty of picnic areas, would of advise to take pack lunch. Good... More

Was a lovely afternoon out, ample parking, reasonably priced, loads to see and some quite friendly Monkeys who seemed to take quite a shine to young children. Great talks. The only negative I have is there isn't enough toilets around the park so make sure u go before getting to far in.

If you're in to monkeys it's the place for you! Lots of different monkeys to see and the play areas were great. Toilets were very basic but ok, and the queue for refreshments was very long and not a lot of choice. We took 4 children under 5 years old and to be honest, they were more interested in the... More

A week in Dorset visiting many attractions.Monkey world head and shoulders above anything else we visited.Money well spent for all day entertainment even the guide book for only a £1 would have cost £3-£4 anywhere.

We came here on bank holiday Monday in the afternoon on our drive home to break up the drive home. We spent about 3 hours at Monkey World but could have spent longer. I must say all the exhibits/pens were the biggest I have seen in any zoo type environment. We had my elderly Nan with me and she hired... More
