Went along on a Thursday afternoon. A knowledgeable member of their team did a talk on the monekeys, really helpful and enthusiastic. Lots of different monkeys and owls in the rescue centre. Lovely tearoom with a friendly robin visitor. Well worth the visit

This is a fantastic place for rescued Primates and Owls. As per other reviews, yes it is small but this is a charity and run as a rescue haven. For around £10, I think its great value, especially compared to other attractions in the Isle...More

Absolutely amazing! Lovely & clean. The keepers (think they were Charlotte & Lucy) made some well informed talks which kept you interested to the very end. Would definitely go back again & again

My 3yr old, 8yr old & 12yr old loved it. Was a beautiful day though ( which always helps ). Just take two umbrellas, problem solved. Has a nice play area also.

Yes. The area is outdoors and is relatively flat. Ramps are used instead of steps so all the monkeys will be easily seen.
