What a lovely way to spend a morning! We loved watching the different monkeys and listening to their individual stories, told so well by Charlotte who was really knowledgable and clearly passionate about the work they do there. So glad we came!

Visited here in March, we were the first ones through the gate so had the Haven all to ourselves for a little while. It is lovely to see rescued animals. This park is quite small and we spent about an hour and a half there.

MonkeyHaven, Happiness Team at Monkey Haven, responded to this review

Funky hats? You seem to have us confused with somewhere else you've been to! Visitors at the Haven are never allowed to interact with monkeys in this way, you must be getting us confused with somewhere outside the uk as this would breach our strict health and safety regulations and moral codes. We have rescued animals from similar situations to... More
