The Monkey Sanctuary

Murrayton House, St Martin's, Looe, Cornwall PL13 1NZ
Looe Hill England PL13 1NZ GB

Set in beautiful woodland and nestled into the side of the south Cornish coast between Looe and Seaton, Wild Futures’ Monkey Sanctuary has been offering a safe haven for monkeys in need since 1964. The 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. The Monkey Sanctuary is the first facility in Europe to earn accreditation from the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries and Wild Futures works hard to protect primates and habitats worldwide.

There’s lots 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 keepers. It’s not just monkeys though! Kids will love the Children’s Activity Room and can get busy with free arts and crafts workshops and playground. Visitors can enter the ‘Bat Zone’ to learn all about bats and view the rare colony of lesser horseshoe bats that live in the cellar of the old house. There’s also the option of taking a gentle stroll around the beautiful Wildlife Gardens to see what other rare species can be spotted or relaxing on the front lawn whilst taking in the sea view. Delicious food and snacks are available at the Treetop Café.
