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.

Thank you for your review. Park rules state that customer must not run whilst in the park as this can scare the monkeys. Our park guides are on hand for both the monkeys and visitors safety. We hope your little ones enjoyed their time here....More

Thank you for your review of Monkey Forest. You were very lucky to have seen one of our new arrivals. The 3/4 of a miel pathway is wheelchair friendly, however, there are some steeper slopes that some may struggle with. Thank you for your comments.
