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:

Updated 29th June 2020
Monkey World is still closed to the public and has not announced an opening date yet. We will alert visitors on our website, email & social media as soon as we have a reopening date. Please DO NOT travel to the park- you will be disappointed!

We are currently experiencing high levels of calls, emails and messages about reopening which is taking up time needed to prepare the park for opening, so we politely request that you check the website and social media pages for updates before getting in contact about opening.

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.
