The gully is a great self-directed walk to explore 50 various types of trees and rock formations along a well-laid out trail. Every morning the guides in the park feed the monkeys (at various times - 11am when we were there), which is well worth the admission price into the gully.

This was a nice and easy walking tour. The guide pamphlet had excellent descriptions of nearly 50 different trees and plants. There are some interesting limestone formations from what was likely a cave before it collapsed to become a gully. Includes nice view of east coast.

My boyfriend and I visited on a tour. We were able to walk to nature trail which was paved and beautiful. On our way back we heard the monkeys were feeding we rushed over to the area where they are fed and there were tons of them. The babies were adorable! You can't feed or pet them yourself but great...

Maybe this just wasn't my thing but find this quite boring. On arriving you saw the monkeys feeding on a platform, then a guide took the group along a trail which had a few interesting plants and not a lot else. There were too many in our group so most people couldn't hear the guide. Would be better to be... More

This is a "down & back" walk. The monkeys are fed in the morning however if you're quiet, still and willing to wait you'll probably see the monkeys. My husband & I saw several, the couple that passed us, walking fast and talking in loud voices complained that they had not seen a single monkey. Be still, quiet and wait... More

A good opportunity to another world away from the beach. Best time to go around 10.30am. This is Green monkey feeding time. They come scurrying from all directions. Total walking distance is about 3 miles return. Interesting trees but no other wildlife seen.

Easy walk down a gully filled with huge trees and bamboo, apart from monkeys we saw hummingbirds and massive centipedes. This is as natural as it can be, except for the path and National Trust members get in half price.

Overrated. Got there when they were feeding the monkeys. There is a sign that says "don't go past when monkeys are feeding" as the workers watched even small children walk within 5 feet. Think they only feed the monkeys cause they dropped off a bus of people. Other than that it's just a walk through a gully. If you in... More

early afternoon we headed over because we wanted to see monkeys. unfortunately we didn't see any, but there was still a lot to see! there is a wide variety of vegetation, with a little map you can follow to learn more about it. a great experience, especially to see a different side of the island!

Welchman Hall Gully is a lovely place - not so easy to find - but well worth the trip. NB if you are in the UK National Trust you get 50% reduction if you show your cards. Lovely location and the plants are amazing - it's a super walk down the gully but remember you have to walk all the... More
