    Very little for under 3's other than the "monkeys". Most of play equipment for older children. Still, if you like monkeys you're onto a winner.

    Get there early, and try and coordinate with feeding times to see some of the more shy and retiring inhabitants.

    What a fabulous place. We came on Halloween and there was free entry for anyone dressed up- nearly everyone was. It made for a fantastic atmosphere and a great day out.

    Lots of chavs, mobility scooters and chimps eating their own shit. What's not to like?

    It reminded me a little of the Job Centre, only two major differences, chimps have grasped the concept of a 'Job' & actually threw less poo at each other. Oh yes and abused passers by less.

    If in DORSET you should visit Monkey World - something for everyone and now they have an adventure play ground on a epic scale also you see the staff from the TV program in every day action. Top Venue

    Brilliant day out, keeper talks very educational and all the animals seem content and well cared for. 10/10

    I recommend turning up when it opens, if you want to take pictures of the more popular primates. The Orangutan enclosures tends to have a crowd. If you have plenty of patience, that helps!

    Service in the treetops cafe very good and friendly. Food better than expected. Portions are pretty big, too.

    Take some time out from the crowds and follow the Woodland Walk. There are boards showing wild birds & animals to look out for. This path is unsuitable for most wheelchairs as uneven & 3 shallow steps

    The Great Ape play area is brilliant and even includes a wheelchair swing (you'll need to ask a member of staff to unlock this though)
