A lovely place to walk around and be amused by the many monkeys. Surprisingly for a rather wet Tuesday afternoon in term time it was very busy, lots of families with babies and toddlers as well as many retired people. But the site is vast and it was possible to get away from the crowds. Though this did mean we... More

Anyone can offer the delights of a simple zoo, but nothing can surpass going somewhere that has been specially created to look after animals that have been abused (both intentionally, but often unintentionally). No this place won't be for everyone, as the animals are not performing 'seals', so do what they like, when they like. Some people assume that a... More

Visited here several times and i love it. Such a good thing they are doing here providing a safe and stimulating environment for all these rescued primates. I would highly reccomend this as a visit to anyone.

Very pleasant and helpful staff and excellent keepers' talks. They do a wonderful job for the rescued monkeys. It must cost a fortune to run as they do so much for the animals. I travelled alone using public transport and as a disabled, elderly woman I was very impressed by the help received from the rail companies, in particular. Also,... More

A really fantastic day out in a park that really is all about the animals. The staff are all really friendly and it's good value.

I really enjoyed my trip to Monkeyworld with 7 members of our photography group. We brought donations of blankets and bedding for the monkeys and decided to stay and take some photos while we were visiting. The monkeys look happy, and it's nice to see them having a better life than they previously had. The information given by the boards... More

Not visited for a few years now and found many changes when we went again. It's a shame that glass has been used on enclosures that were wire mesh previously as on a bright sunny day you don't see much. Lovely place however and Jeremy and his team do a fantastic job.

Couldn't wait to get back to Monkey World and was not disappointed. When people complain they couldn't see anything obviously lack patience. These are mainly rescued animals not performing circus animals. The waits are so worth it. To see little Thelma playing on her own and interact with the others in the group is well worth the stand and see.... More
