We visited Monkey Haven on a very wet miserable day, but having said that this place is well worth a visit. It's not the largest of rescue centres but it is well laid out. The enclosures are really spacious with lots of activities in, for the monkeys to play with. We listened to a talk about the various monkeys from... More

Lovely place to visit. Very clean and the cages were all very well kept. Can not wait to return in the summer with my daughter. We managed to hold a snake and also held hands with a monkey.

Lovely staff who are eager to cater for your requirements, they are very knowledgeable and helpful too. I thought the monkey haven and owl centre was a lovely rescue place and I enjoyed looking around the different monkeys, lemurs and owl breeds. I do believe the centre is quite good for about and hour or so, but not a plan... More

Ideal place for the young and old - well laid paths to all the animals and not too big. The animals looked well cared for and there was plenty of info for visitors. Good play areas for both over school age and preschoolers. Cafe offered warm drinks and light lunches.
