The perfect day out for all the family! Trentham Monkey Forest is completely unique to the UK. It is the only place that you can walk amongst 140 Barbary macaques roaming free in 60 acres of beautiful Staffordshire woodland.

This is a full day experience. Many different monkey environments as well as a decent cafe. The souvenir shop is somewhat expensive and a little impersonal. Recommended.
