Trentham Monkey Forest
A unique experience for everyone - come to the only place in Britain where you can walk amongst 140 Barbary macaques roaming free in 60 acres of beautiful English Forest. Walking in the park you are transported into a different world through close contact with the monkeys. You will be mesmerised as you watch the monkeys playing on the ground and in the trees, displaying their natural behaviours as they would in the wild, so don't be surprised if they stroll on the path straight in front of you! Guides are positioned along the paths and are happy to answer any questions. Hourly feeding talks.
Children (aged 3 to 14 years): £5.50. under 3 free
Special rates for groups (20+) and schools, please ring for details.
