Venue type: Outdoor

If you go down to the woods today you won’t see a bear, but you will see a lot of monkeys in 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 monkeys in that area 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
  • Hourly feeding talks

Our family had a brilliant couple of hours at Monkey Forest. Even though we went in school holidays, it didn't feel too busy, so we could just enjoy the experience in a relaxed manner. Everyone loved seeing the monkeys play and swing in the trees. The baby monkeys are the cutest thing you'll ever see!

We Love Monkeys!!

What a lovely day! Came here with the whole family and the extended as well. It was amazing to see the monkeys up close and personally. It was wonderful to see them roaming free and enjoying life. The walk around the forest is barely a mile so it's not too much walking but the path, when wet, is muddy so bring good shoes. Feeding time is every hour and is very informative! Everyone's favourite part was seeing the baby monkeys run and play around. Some even had the funniest play fights. The cafe is great and the toilets are very well kept. There are great playgrounds as well for the little ones to let loose their inner monkey. Would needs about 2-3 hours for a visit. It was such a great value for money!! Would love to come again!

Great wee stop off
