Trentham Monkey Forest
Walk amongst the Monkeys...
Re-opening for brand new season on 13 February 2016!
The monkeys live in total freedom which allows visitors to get an in depth insight into the lives of these fascinating monkeys. The woodland trail allows you to walk amongst the monkeys and immerse yourself in their everyday antics. See them as they swing from the trees, lounge on the grass and even walk the path straight past you!
This unique attraction lets visitors explore and learn about the lives of these fascinating primates, living just as they would in Morocco or Algeria. Guides situated along the path will provide you with interesting information about the monkeys and will keep you up to date with what they are getting up to. Be sure not to miss the hourly feeding talks to see some more monkey antics!
The Trentham Estate is home to several great attractions, including Trentham Monkey Forest. Each attraction is operated seperately, and has its own management, opening times and prices. For further Monkey Forest information, visit Trentham Monkey Forest’s website.
