Worth going
Aug 2021 • Couples
Lovely place to have a walk through and also enjoy the amazing monkeys at a very close distance to yourself. Seemed to be a children place, however we went as a couple to have a different kind of walk and it worked. Worth the money.

Great to see the monkeys at ease
Oct 2021
This was my second time visiting Trentham Monkey Forest and it was just as enjoyable to see the barbary macaques happy in their habitat. The staff were incredibly friendly and very knowledgeable - standing ready to answer any questions the visitors had.

An amazing place
Oct 2021 • Family
We were travelling to Alton Towers however also meeting family from Birmingham and looked around to see where we could meet and found this gem.

I am delighted to have found this place. It is amazing to see the animals walking about, having freedom to explore their environment and engage in play with others. It’s almost refreshing to see them away from a small caged environment. The babies are adorable and do not leave their mother’s side.

It's not just for kids! Wonderful experience.

Wish there were more sanctuaries like this in the UK. The monkeys are safe and happy in a well protected, natural environment. They don't appear to be bothered by spectators and staff are always close by ensuring their safety and wellbeing. It's amazing to see these wonderful animals up close and even more precious knowing how endangered they are and what wonderful conservation work the Team at Trentham are doing.

Thank you for your feedback. We are so glad you enjoyed your day out! As our monkeys are free-roaming we cannot control where they go, they are fine in rain as the conditions in Trentham are similar to those in the Atlas mountains where they originate from. It must have been an unfortunate visit we are afraid but we hope you see a lot more during your next visit! Thanks, Trentham Monkey Forest Team

Wow. All staff are a credit to themselves. A day out with caring staff, cheap prices + monkeys that are happy as Larry!
Oct 2021 • Family
Where do I start?

Amazing day out. Caring + passionate staff who despite their busy schedule, take time to answer questions and clearly care massively about the monkeys. It’s extremely well priced. I was so surprised at the ticket prices, refreshments and shop prices. My daughter bagged a lovely monkey for such a good price and the food was very reasonable! It’s very clean and well kept. The monkeys are happy and looked after so well and live a life anybody would love! It’s a full day out with a great length walk, play areas, information areas, cafe, shop etc.

I just want to add that I’m sure management already know this, but your staff are a credit to themselves and the company. Staff make a HUGE difference to a day out and they completed an already amazing day out for us. We had so many questions and they cared about answering them and answered with passion. We will be back in the near future.

Thanks for a lovely day out and also for saving such a beautiful species :)

Monkey Heaven!
Oct 2021 • Couples
We did the breakfast with monkeys. It was great to be able to be in the gardens before they opened. The ladies that took us round were very friendly and knowledgable. It was lovely to see the monkeys roaming around with out being caged. There were a few babies that were funny to watch too. Overall an excellent experience for an animal lover.

Monkey business 🐒
Oct 2021 • Family
Excellent visit, the children love visiting the park. We always have a great time. My youngest son who has ASD asked why it is called a monkey forest when the Barbary macaques aren’t monkeys they are apes. He makes a good point 🤣 it is brilliant how you can watch the Barbary macaques feeding and they can just walk right passed you.

Thank you for your lovely feedback. We are so glad you enjoyed your day out! Barbary macaques are true monkeys and they are commonly mistaken as Barbary apes. Some monkeys do not have tails, one of which are our beautiful Barbary macaques. Thanks, Trentham Monkey Forest Team

A good day out.
Oct 2021
Thought this was great. Monkeys obviously well looked after. Seemed really happy. Loved the way they could go anywhere. They were swinging from the trees over my head and walking on the paths. Baby monkeys there too. Great cafe with lovely friendly staff. Massive car park. A good day out.
