Must do's at Trentham Monkey Forest

Feeding talks

After you've explored the forest, make sure you catch one of the feeding talks that take place every quarter past the hour from 11:15 am. Your whole family can watch the monkeys being fed and learn all about this fascinating species and the conservation efforts that are being carried out to keep them in the wild while preventing habitat loss and keeping them out of the hands of the illegal pet trade.

Breakfast with the monkeys

The attraction's unique 'Breakfast with Monkeys' opportunity is an unforgettable experience that allows you to enter the monkey enclosure as a VIP before it opens. You can help the primate staff give the monkeys their breakfast, take photos and enjoy a drink at the Banana Café. You'll also be given the chance to ask the park's experts any questions to learn more about the one-of-a-kind Barbary macaque.

What other facilities are there?
