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.

Good expereince to walk through and experience the monkeys up close. Guides have good knowledge and you can watch the regular feeding. Downsides are that there is only 1 type of monkey, and it is quite pricey (about £30 for a family of 4) for...More

Loved wandering together through the woods, seeing the monkeys being fed and at play. Young ones very cute, and even more so earlier in the year we found!
