For great family days out in Stoke-on-Trent, you’ll be hard pushed to find one better than Trentham Monkey Forest. Having been open to the public since 2005, this unique attraction is home to 140 Barbary macaques. Unlike other animal attractions, the monkeys here live just as they would in the wild, having free reign of the forest.
These monkeys are an endangered species and Trentham Monkey Forest aims to explain the conservation efforts taking place to help these monkeys in the wild, which suffer at the hands of the illegal pet trade and habitat loss.
Wander through the ancient forest in Staffordshire to see the antics of these monkeys as they roam and play completely free, with not a single cage in sight. The walk is just under a mile long and you can read information on numerous boards along the way. The guides in the forest will be happy to answer any of your questions too. Please note that you mustn’t feed or touch any of the monkeys.
When you’re not taking photos of these inquisitive animals or exploring the forest, be sure to watch one of the feeding talks. They’re held every quarter past the hour, starting at 11.15am each day. Have some lunch yourself in one of the pretty picnic areas or enjoy a meal inside or outside at the Banana Café.
Don’t forget to visit the Jungle Shop to get some monkey memorabilia as a souvenir of your fantastic family day out. Treat someone else to this experience with a gift voucher and souvenir guide. For an unforgettable experience, book Breakfast with the Monkeys for exclusive access to feed the monkeys before opening time.
Opening times vary depending on the time of year and school holidays so check Trentham Monkey Forest’s timetable before your visit. Last entry to the forest is an hour before closing time, and take a look at the park map to get your bearings.
