After going to Longleet and having my car destroyed by monkeys I tend to hate them. Monkey haven in Newport was going to be a big test. Happily this was a much better experience. Staff are friendly and welcoming and knowledgeable. There are different times...More

The fabulous reviews for this place are entirely justified. It is so obviously well run by passionate and dedicated staff. All the animals are healthy and well cared for, the entire site is spotlessly clean, and the keeper talks are friendly and informative. Even the...More

Really good activity for a day out with family or friends or as couples. Loads to see, the monkeys are brilliant and the child's quiz is also suitable for adults although I didn't get all the stamps. Would recommend!

My 3yr old, 8yr old & 12yr old loved it. Was a beautiful day though ( which always helps ). Just take two umbrellas, problem solved. Has a nice play area also.

Yes. The area is outdoors and is relatively flat. Ramps are used instead of steps so all the monkeys will be easily seen.
