Overview

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 English Forest. Walking in the park transports you into a different world through close contact with the monkeys.

It is a good place to visit, however it's bit to expensive comparing to the attractions. Spend there about an hour, not much to do :)

We went here with my 3 grandchildren aged 13, 6 and 3. What a fantastic place! Easy to get to from the M6, plenty of parking, lovely staff, well organised 'feeding times', and lovely surroundings for the monkeys to live in. 10/10.

If you want to get up close to monkeys then this is a wonderful place to do so. The staff are very knowledgeable and approachable. Monkeys everywhere so you will see them, the babies are charming.
