Hearing and Visually Impaired Visitors
If you require a written Keeper Talk please ask the Keeper at the beginning of the talk that you are interested in. Talks are available via video by scanning QR codes at the enclosures too. All talks are subtitled.
Dogs and other pets are not permitted into the park. Our rescued and endangered primates become very upset and agitated by dogs, and Monkey World is their home and safe haven so we do not allow dogs in the park. However we do accept Guide Dogs, Hearing Dogs and Medical Alert Dogs, with prior notification only by calling the office on 01929 462537 (Mon-Fri) or 01929 401012 (weekends) and on production of their ID book and veterinary vaccination records. However they are not permitted to go into the Malagasy enclosure where the lemurs are free to roam around.
There are also 3 sensory statues at the park that are available for visually-impaired visitors to touch in order to gauge the shape and size of some of our primates. There is a male orang-utan’s face (pictured), a male chimpanzee’s face and a common marmoset. Please ask for assistance if you would like access to the statues.
