Review of Monkey World

This place is just brilliant. We were a bit worried that we would be the only adults amongst loads of children's but no, there were more adults than children and this is because it isn't a zoo, it is a sanctuary. We were lucky that nearly all the monkeys were active when we visited but we were well aware that it could be the opposite. The keeper talks were really interesting and some of the stories are heartbreaking, it is so nice to see these beautiful animals safe and happy. Eating facilities are good there, we had coffee and cake when we arrived (all for fundraising!!) and a pasty at lunch time, all very reasonably priced.

Monkey world is a great place to go- a great day out. I went with my Mum and had a lovely two day trip. There were so many monkeys to see and the staff were all very helpful and had alot of knowledge to share about the monkeys in the scheduled talks they gave. There were 3 places to choose from to eat and a selection of hot and cold food. The gift shop also has alot of souvenirs you can buy and the money goes directly to monkey world which is great. This is a rescue centre, not a zoo and the staff are very attentive and look after the monkeys wonderfully.

Great place for adults and children alike, wear comfy shoes!! Great grounds, plenty of picnic areas/seating areas, food outlets, but of course the best parts are the monkeys/apes, the enclosures are equipped with apparatus to keep them occupied, these animals are so interesting to watch and in some cases so amusing, don't forget your camera.

The enclosures are huge compared to other animal attractions which is excellent for the primates no doubt. However, from a spectators point of view it can be often difficult to get a good view of them.

Like most places it is expensive but it all helps to keep the rescue centre running. Ideally there could be some better placed viewing platforms and vantage points for visitors to get a better view.

If you have seen the TV show you will enjoy seeing some familiar faces.
