Support a local charity and visit Wild Futures Monkey Sanctuary, offering a safe haven for monkeys since 1964. Nestled into the side of the south Cornish coast between Looe and Seaton, Wild Futures’ Monkey Sanctuary cares for a range of different species of rescued monkeys, giving visitors an intimate insight to a working sanctuary and a chance to meet some of its amazing monkey residents and wildlife inhabitants. There’s a lot to do for the whole family who can take a tour of the monkey enclosures and learn about these fascinating animals from the team of expert carers. It’s not just monkeys though! Kids will love the wild play area where they can learn about the environment around them and let off some steam in the playground. Take a gentle stroll around the beautiful Wildlife Gardens and check out the sea view or enjoy a delicious lunch at the Treetop Café.

This is a great place to see monkeys in action, it is just a pity there are not a few more of them! The staff were on hand [in the rain] to explain the actions and stories of the monkeys which was interesting.

The staff here were v friendly, especially a North American lady (I think!!) at the welcome desk. The monkeys are obviously well looked after, and I would agree that it feels a bit small and you get round it fairly quickly, which is fine in...More

This is an interesting place to visit and a worthy cause to support. The staff are friendly and share lots of insights into the background of each monkey. We visited on a rainy day, so some of the monkeys had disappeared indoors. Also, I was...More

Well what can I say other than a total waste of £28. We had walked around the sanctuary in about 10 minutes, they had about a handful of the same monkeys. Been absolutely robbed!

Yes, you can push your toddler around. It is not very big, so you only need an hour to see the whole place. I didn't see the gardens, but it looked like a nice place to take a toddler.
