We visited last Thursday, 21st May. Hired a mobility scooter for husband (wheelchair hire is available) and then spent over four hours watching the monkeys and apes. What a fantastic place for adults and children alike. Plenty of space and it was so joyful to see that the primates had so much room to play in the sunshine or go... More

visited monkey world several times in the last ten years and every time you go there is something new or something new being done to keep the place interesting to see, this place was founded by jim kronin and his wife (sorry can't remember her name) to help mistreated primates originally it was just monkeys from laboratories and beach photographers...

Spent 4 hours visiting the park. With it being a weekdays and the kids at school it was ideal for families with younger children to visit so the little ones could see the animals without older children running around. Some of the enclosures were difficult to see anything in. Some of the gibbons were in fine voice and displayed in... More

Not too over priced, loads to see and lots of information, make sure you give yourself a whole day as the place is bigger than you first think. The food was also yummy and not too pricey as they can be in places like this, we will certainly visit again

Been here today with our 2 year old and 8 month old we had a fab day out great facilities for baby changing and parks for them to play in not over priced entry fee or for food would definitely recommend. The chimps were fantastic. Food in restaurant very average although very fairly priced would recommend you bring a picnic.

Although the not a full day out, it still a great place to go. Nice and clean with all the monkey easily to see in their enclosures. The entry cost is fair and the price for drinks and food is very competitive compared to theme parks. Overall great time, worth a visit
