Monkey World - Ape Rescue Centre
Monkey World – Ape Rescue Centre

Monkey World is in Wareham which is a few miles out of Weymouth but well worth the effort if you want a family day out or just love seeing monkeys!

One of the great things about Monkey World is the ease of access for families (and disabled users). If you have a buggy or small children you can push them round nearly the whole way on a nice flat path which is still close enough to see the action. Some of the species on display include:

  • Chimpanzees
  • Orang-utans
  • Gibons
  • Woolly Monkeys
  • Marmosets
  • Lemurs
  • Spider Monkeys
  • Patas Monkeys

There are plenty of places to use the loo and get refreshments along the way. There are also tours available too.

Children’s Play Area

One of the best things we thought was the amazing and huge children’s play area at the end of the park.

Monkey World is open every day except Christmas Day so there is no excuse for not paying this fantastic attraction a visit and supporting our ape friends!
