Trentham: perfect for your own little monkeys
Situated close to Stoke-on-Trent, Trentham Monkey Forest is quite remarkable. A conservation project, the monkey forest breed barbary macaques in 60 acres of land all year round.



The best part? The monkeys are allowed to roam free, amongst the visitors. It is quite remarkable seeing these primates roam around with very few parameters to confine them, and to see them up close! This is obviously a joy for younger children, as being up close to wild animals is incredibly exciting for them.



Obviously, you have to be wary around the macaques, as they are wild animals, despite their close contact with humans. If you keep small children under control however and remain on the paths, you'll have a safe a happy visit.



Trentham Monkey Forest is 7 entry with a student card, and is easy to find via car if you follow the A34. For students and senior citizens, I'd recommend going at a time when the school holidays have ended, as it will be quieter, and you can take as many turns round the forest as you wish.
