Such a brilliant and enjoyable day out, only £37 for a family of 4! The site is massive and well laid out for a leisurely stroll around this brilliant place. There are so many different species of apes in open enclosures that are great to watch, each enclosure has facts about the apes along with names, and plenty opertunities for... More

Omg what a brilliant park! All the monkeys were amazing and we went twice while we stayed in Dorset. Great place to take your children. We adopted an orang-utan which was fantastic and my son was allowed into the park for free with his adoption pass. Shop was great and facilities were great too!

I went here last week with my two small children (4&2), husband, a friend and her 1 year old and we all had a brilliant day out. There is plenty of space to walk around and the monkeys are great to see, if they are not hiding. The staff are very friendly and though we only had hot drinks I... More

Not a zoo but a sanctuary. It is sad that primates should end up in captivity, but the guys at monkey world rescue the inmates from far worse situations and their work should be applauded. The talks in each section are highly informative and delivered by passionate keepers. Free entry to kids with Blue Peter Badges too!

This is the second time I have visited this attraction. It is a great attraction both for families and couples. There were talks about the monkeys every half hour from 12.30 and we found them to be very good and informative. If you are not very mobile I noticed they were lending electric scooters out which I thought was a... More

We have visited Monkey world on numerous occasions but it is always an enjoyable day out and you feel as though you are helping to rehabilitate rescued monkeys. The entrance fee is very reasonable and the café prices are good too considering the 'captive market.' The grounds are well kept and the enclosures are large so the monkeys seem well... More
