Monkey Haven, Newport

4.6
#1 of 45 in Outdoors in Isle of Wight
Explore animals of land and sky at the Isle of Wight’s Monkey Haven. As a well-known animal relief organization, the center boasts a diverse collection of rescued primates and birds of prey. Attend a handling session with a knowledgeable trainer and learn more about the different types of monkeys, or listen to individual rescue stories while watching the owls being fed. Stop for a hot chocolate and scone at the center’s cafe before you leave. The center is nonprofit, so all proceeds go toward animal conservation and education. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Newport holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Monkey Haven and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • A big favourite with all the family, the Haven is beautifully maintained and focus is on not only on the welfare of the animals but their happiness too! You can easily spend several hours just sitting watching them having fun. Nice cafe too but limited options for eating. Great gift shop and animal adoption schemes.
  • Really enjoyable rescue centre. Plenty of interesting monkeys that I could watch for ages. Staff are also very friendly and playful with the animals. Recommended to come before 12PM to see the animals being fed. Interesting Owls and birds too. Not the biggest place but great to spend a couple of hours in. Highly recommended.
  • Great day out for all ages! Would recommend going to the daily talks / feedings! The cafe is small but has a wide range of food, as well as lots of outdoor seating!
  • Very cared for place. Talks by Lizzy were very engaging and enjoyable. Well worth a few hours for the £10 adult entry.
  • this is a really good day out, especially for little ones. there is a stamp activity for little ones to do by finding stampers around the park which are stamps of different animals. there is also a little outdoor play area for little ones ( slides, climbing frame, see saw) the food was very reasonably priced and child friendly meals.
