Take a walk on the wild side... with 140 monkeys!
Trentham Monkey Forest, situated in Staffordshire, is completely unique to the UK. With 140 Barbary macaques living freely within the beautiful 60 acre woodland. Walk amongst the monkeys along the ¾ of a mile pathway and watch as the monkey antics unfold right in front of you. With no cages or bars to hinder your view, visitors get an in-depth insight into the lives of these fascinating monkeys, as they live just as they would in the wild.

As well as multiple information boards along the woodland walk, guides are situated throughout the forest to help answer any questions you may have during your trip. Plus, make sure you watch one of the hourly feeding talks to find out even more about the Barbary macaques that live here in Trentham.
