Set in beautiful woodland overlooking the picturesque Cornish Coast, The Monkey Sanctuary has been offering a safe home for life to monkeys in need since 1964.
Much more than just monkeys, we offer a great day out for the whole family, and you can rest assured that 100% of all income from our visitors goes to support out charitable work protecting primates and habitats.
The Monkey Sanctuary cares for four different species of monkeys; all rescued from the UK and international primate pet trades. Our visitors receive an intimate insight into a working sanctuary with keepers on hand all day to give informative talks on the centre’s residents and the charity’s wider work.
The Sanctuary offers a great day out for all the family, with wildlife gardens, children’s activity room, workshops, gift shop, café and picnic areas.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
