Was so wonderful to be so close to these amazing creatures. Staff were friendly and informative. We were just as interested in the wood and landscape as looking at the animals themselves. Fab day out in beautiful surroundings.

It was amazing to see the monkeys so up close, especially when they walk/run across a path right in front of you! Walked around the circuit of the park a few times and saw the feeding times and listened to one of the talks. Staff...More

Well organised and staffed experienced. Queue for payment not too long and was efficiently handled. Approaching the entrance to the monkey park feels a bit like Jurassic park which made it exciting for our younger children! Fabulous that the monkeys are free to roam, all...More

Brought the kids here expecting a full day out. Nice idea and lovely environment for the monkeys to live in and hopefully reproduce. Once you’ve seen one you’ve seen them all. 2 hours is long enough here.

Monkey Forest is the perfect half day attraction and most people do spend around 2 hours with us. Thank you for your review, we're happy to hear you enjoyed seeing the monkeys in their natural home.

I’m afraid not, the monkeys are able to roam freely so no dogs allowed.
