Attraction Information

If you go down to the woods today you won’t see a bear, but you will see a lot of monkeys at Trentham Monkey Forest!
Set in 60 acres of ancient Staffordshire woodland, this unique attraction is home to 140 free roaming Barbary Macaques. It’s as close to seeing these animals in their natural habitat as you’ll get, with no cages or bars to hinder your view. Follow the ¾ of a mile visitor pathway to meet the two groups of monkeys, who live in growing family groups where you can watch all of their daily interactions unfold and even see baby monkeys!
There are lots of information boards throughout the woods that give you information on the endangered species and friendly guides are on hand to answer any questions. 
There's even an adventure playground for your little monkeys to let off some steam.
  • Discover Barbary Macaques living as they would in the wild
  • Guides explain the monkey antics as they occur
  • Fun-packed adventure playground
