  • It's ok but a tad overpriced. If it's just one person £8 it's ok but add in two kids (£6 each) it's £20 which just to see two groups of the same monkey sit in the same place it turns out to be a bit e...  read more »
  • Good day out for the little ones, bit pricey but you can get deals on voucher websites/local radio station. You can get up close to the monkeys and they do an informative talk at feeding time. They al...  read more »
  • Family have recently visited and thought it was excellent for familys lots to do and see...excellent facility ...for young and old 
  • Great entertainment walking around with all the monkeys. The staff are very friendly and knowledgable. Bit of a one trick pony though as once you've been around the monkeys, that's it, nothing much else to do. Good fun and value though.
  • Visited on crazy busy bank holiday. Great that you can see the monkeys close up, so kids love it, but you have to queue for everything. Decent pricing to get in. Good, plentiful free parking.
  • A wonderful experience! Monkey Forest is a great day out for all the family, being able to walk among the monkeys was exciting, the staff are informative and helpful and there's plenty to see and do. The entry price is very fair too.
  • Great day out, would go agin, food and gifts was price just Right some really nice places to sit and just in the view, loads of areas to have a picnic, just a wonderful day out, the monkey forest is great as well
  • Well I drove my missis and daughter 100 miles for this ... and from reading all the reviews I wasn't sure what to expect. The day we went it was absolutely chucking it down and i didn't hold hi expectations. But it was well worth it. I dunno how people are saying they didn't see anything, there was so many monkeys all very active and the walk, albeit only 40 mins was a nice walk with plenty of information boards around. It was really good. Missis enjoyed it the most! We will definitely be going back soon.
