Learning has never been so much fun

Trentham Monkey Forest is the ideal location for a fun and inspiring educational visit.

Get outdoors and get creative as you learn about an endangered species, conservation and nature – whatever topic you are covering.

Play spaces to tire them out!

We have fantastic play spaces onsite, perfect for energetic young minds! We have a Brass Rubbing Primate Trail where little ones can draw, watch and play all things primate.

In addition to this, there’s a monkey shaped Willow Maze for them to explore, where they can learn the anatomy of a Barbary macaque whilst being lost inside one’s belly!

An unforgettable, unique experience

Through our educational initiatives, we aim to inspire visitors to learn more about the unique behaviors and characteristics of our primates, as well as the challenges they face in the wild.

By raising awareness of the importance of conservation, we hope to encourage our visitors to take action and help protect our planet’s wildlife and habitats.

Our educational offerings include school trips, group visits, and workshops, all of which are tailored to suit different ages and levels of learning.

We also provide a range of educational resources, including fun facts, quizzes, and activity sheets, which are perfect for families and educators looking to learn more about our playful primates.
