Monkey World now offers facilities to cater for meetings and conferences on-site at the park!

Whether it’s a meeting, seminar, conference or product launch, we have the perfect room for you.

We can cater for both large and small events, and our dedicated team will be on hand from beginning to end to ensure that your day runs smoothly.

A full range of catering options is available to suit all budgets, from coffee and bacon sandwiches on arrival to a full buffet or dinner. There is also a wide range of audio visual equipment available to hire, so escaping the office for a meeting at Monkey World is the ideal place to get creative.

Once brainstorming has finished, relax with your colleagues on one of our guided tours or enjoy a presentation by a member of the Primate Care team on our work here at the park.

With our flexible and friendly attitude, excellent food and superb location, it really is a unique venue for any event!

 Are you and your team looking for a fun day out where you can volunteer time to a worthwhile cause while improving team dynamics and strengthening working relationships? If so, look no further than our Monkey World Team Building Days.

Monkey World is about protecting man’s closest relatives, and providing a safe and natural family group environment. We’re pleased to provide opportunities for corporate groups to connect to nature, and unify their team bonds through our engaging and interesting work here at the park. We welcome both corporate teams and community groups and in return for your invaluable time and effort at Monkey World we promise you a fun, educational day out at our beautiful 65 acre park set in Dorset countryside – a sure-fire way to boost morale.

Team building days will vary, depending on the seasonal needs of the park. This may be preparing our blanket stores for winter, or renovating primate enclosures through gardening work. For more information on the types of days we can currently offer, please do get in touch.

A typical day would include a short tour of the park, a health & safety briefing, staff-led activities, free time over lunch to explore the park, equipment use, & hot and cold drinks throughout the day. Monkey World is a self-funded rescue centre, and so to cover the costs of running the team building days, the following charges apply:

  • £15pp for groups of up to 10 people
  • £10pp for groups of 10+ people

If you would like lunch provided for your group, the following catering options are available:

  • Packed lunches at £5pp
  • A buffet lunch for £8pp

If you are interested in booking one of our team building days, or have any questions or queries, please email us at

We look forward to working with you!

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.
