Monkey World

"what are we doing today?"

Set amongst the woodland of Dorset lays 65 acres of sanctuary for over 230 primates.

Monkey World was set up in 1987 by Jim and Alison Cronin to provide abused Spanish beach chimps with a permanent, stable home.

Today Monkey World works in conjunction with foreign governments from all over the world to stop the illegal smuggling of apes out of Africa and Asia.

"i'm hungry"

The Treetops Cafe and the Watering Hole which serve both hot and cold food. Kiosks for snacks, drinks and ice-creams are dotted around the park. We have plenty of picnic tables also.

healthy food

Range of salads and fruit. Vegans and vegetarians OK. If you have special dietary requirements please ring 01929 462537 and press 2 for administration.

"Can I have one of those?"

Disposable cameras, films, together with cuddly toys, mugs, clothing etc.

"i need a wee"

Disabled Toilets and baby changing facilities available as well as standard.

and baby come too...

We do not sell baby food but milk-warming can be done by microwave or via the staff.

"are we there yet?"

Monkey World is just over 1 mile from the village of Wool on the Bere Regis to Wool road. From Dorchester and Poole take the A35 and from Ringwood and Southampton take the A31. There is a railway station at Wool and most taxis meet the trains.

All our paths are tarmac so is suitable for both buggies and wheelchairs.
