Monkey World offers personal talks and guided tours of the park by our Education Officers.

Monkey World’s highly popular guided tours take visitors on a 1 hour 15 minute walking tour through our 65 acre park. One of the Education Team will guide you on your journey, detailing the history of the park and our mission to end the illegal smuggling of primates from the wild. Throughout the tour your guide will tell you the stories behind our primates’ rescues, explaining their transition from cruelty and abuse to their rehabilitation into appropriate social groups and large, natural enclosures.

Our tours are a fantastic way to gain a better insight into Monkey World’s work and to enhance your experience of the park; perfect for fans of Monkey Business and Monkey Life! Tours are very popular and often booked up quickly. To avoid disappointment tours should be booked in advance through our Admin Office on 01929 462537. Gift Vouchers are also available. Mobility scooters and wheelchairs are available to hire.

Visitor Notice:

To protect our rescued monkeys and apes and our dedicated team at the park during the ongoing coronavirus situation, we are taking steps to limit potential exposure of our primates in every way we can.

To this end, we have taken the decision to close the park to the public, effective from 5pm on Tuesday 17th March 2020. All scheduled Monkey World events, guided tours and bookings are cancelled until further notice. Our office staff will be in contact with anyone who had a booking of this nature.

You can still adopt online, and buy from our online giftshop, but please be aware that there will be delays in posting purchases and adoption packs, as we are working on skeleton staff to keep everyone safe. Adoption packs can be posted twice a week, and giftshop orders will be posted once a week.

If you’d like to talk to a member of staff, the office will be staffed on Monday and Thursday.

Your support and understanding mean the world to us. We wish you and your families the very best during this difficult time and will keep you in touch with our family.

Thank you for understanding.
