Due to Covid-19, adoptions and orders may be slightly delayed in getting to you. Thank you for your understanding.

Although Covid-19 restrictions have eased, due to the vulnerability of the monkeys to Covid-19, and to protect our team, we are still opening in a limited way. We are no longer running small tours, which will allow visitors to spend more time around the monkeys if they choose, however, visiting is by timed entry tickets only to allow us to limit the amount of people throughout the day.

All visits to The Monkey Sanctuary must be booked in advance via our website. This way we can strictly limit the number of people around the monkeys to enable us to continue doing our best to keep them, and you, safe. Please don’t try to visit The Monkey Sanctuary without a valid booking confirmation as we won’t be able to let you in. The welfare of the monkeys in our care is paramount and is as always our main priority. As long as the monkeys are vulnerable to this virus, we must be cautious, so we thank you for your understanding and for helping us do our best to keep the monkeys and humans safe.

The wearing of face coverings will remain mandatory when around the monkey enclosures and in any indoor spaces. (Medical and children under the age of 11 exemptions apply).

Please note – The Monkey Sanctuary is an outdoor venue.

      What Is Gift Aid?

      Gift Aid allows charities like us to reclaim tax (25p for every £1) from the government on your donations. If you are a UK taxpayer, by making a donations equivalent to or greater than our admission cost and opting to Gift Aid, you enable us to treat your payment as a donation, so each £1 you spend can do £1.25 of good. So, if you are paying an amount of income and or capital gains tax in the current tax year at least equal to the tax that we will reclaim on your donation (25p for every £1 given), all you need to do is select the Gift Aid declaration when booking your tickets.

      Your admission today entitles you to up to 12 months’ free entry in to The Monkey Sanctuary during our opening hours on presentation of your membership card that you’ll receive after your first visit.

      You must be a UK taxpayer to participate in the Gift Aid scheme. You need to pay enough Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax in each tax year to cover the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations to charity otherwise you are responsible to pay any difference.


      Due to the natural setting of the site and the listed status of the main Sanctuary house, we are unable to provide full access to all areas of the site to wheelchair users and visitors with limited mobility. In certain areas, our paths are steep, sloping, and can be narrow, making some paths unsuitable for all types of wheelchairs. Please call us 01503 262532 if you would like more details about accessibility before booking your visit. Entry is half price for disabled visitors and free for their carer.

      Dogs and assistance dogs 

      Unfortunately, we cannot allow dogs (including assistance dogs) into the main Monkey Sanctuary site. Please contact us in advance of your visit to make alternative arrangements in regards to assistance dogs, on 01503 262 532.
