Monkey Haven

If you love all kinds of primates, this is the place to visit! Purpose-built, this sanctuary for rescued gibbons, marmosets, macaques, and a myriad of other species (including owls and other birds) is now England’s’ small Top Visitor Attraction and well worthy of the title. Large enclosures house all the animals and have been designed to offer visitors maximum viewing possibilities whilst allowing the animals to feel secure and have quiet times. Keeper talks and demonstrations throughout the day keep you entertained through your whole visit and you’ll be begging to come back again and again! Being a modern, purpose-built facility, you’d expect that the venue is accessible to all, and we’re pleased to confirm this. Paving is flat and smooth, and pathways are wide enough to fit your whole family side by side. The centre has a lovely café serving fresh foods and caters for all dietary requirements.
