Came here last weekend with little one who is 2. We did an Easter hunt which she loved. When you get in the Forrest it's very clean and well kept, there's staff around to give you information on the mokeys. The monkeys roam around very close to you which is a great experience. It was a good half a day out.

Had an amazing time today. The staff around the park are so knowledgeable and helpful.
The lady doing activities for children was incredible. Kept the children occupied for a good 30 mins. I’m amazed by what information they retained too. Only downside is the banana cafe. Sad to say that the selection of food is not great and definitely wouldn’t suit the monkeys who apparently like fresh fruit and veg!
Well worth visiting the forest for an informative day and the opportunity to get very close to the monkeys too. Take your own food if you want to eat healthily.

Thank Samhug

Really enjoyed the outing with our family.
Loads of monkeys who were behaving naturally.
Plenty of staff on hand to guide and help.
The activities for kids along the path was also really great.

First time here and we had a great time. It's easy to find, and easy to park (free). It was so interesting to see the 140 monkeys living freely and going about their business. The guides were cheerful, friendly and informative and we learned a lot.
Reasonably priced cafe, 2 play areas and a nice place to picnic if the weather is kind. Unfortunately on Bank holiday Monday it was (typically) wet and cold but we still had a great couple of hours and we plan to return on a hot day (if we get any) to enjoy it all again.

Nice place to spend a calm day in the sun. We had a great time learning about the monkeys. Hope to spend more time there next time.
