 If you are looking for a fun day out with a difference, look no further. Trentham Monkey Forest is a sanctuary for endangered Barbary monkeys. The natural behaviours of the monkeys can be seen right in front of your very eyes, making it one of the most fascinating and special attractions in the UK. Guests walk along the 3/4 of a mile pathway, amongst the monkeys, and see exactly how they live and behave in the wild. This is a Forest Walk like no other, providing visitors with a memorable and educational experience, raising awareness of the endangered status of these incredible Barbary macaques. And as if that wasn’t enough, there is a huge new primate-themed play area at the park for those cheeky monkeys of your own.

Monkey Forest at Trentham | Monkey Sanctuary – Trentham Estate

The contemporary gardens have matured into some of the finest in Britain, described by James Alexander Sinclair in The Telegraph, as “The garden makeover of the decade”. The imaginative and innovative revival of the famous Italian Gardens was led by renowned designer and multi-Chelsea gold-medal winner Tom Stuart-Smith. To the east of the Italian Gardens are the Rivers of Grass and the adjacent Floral Labyrinth. Both these schemes were designed by eminent Dutch plantsman, and Chelsea gold-medal winner, Piet Oudolf. We are proud to have received many accolades including the Enjoy Staffordshire Tourism Gold Award, Countryfile Garden of The Year, Horticulture Week Custodian Awards and in 2015, 2016 and 2017 we were awarded a Gold Accolade by Visit England At the heart of Trentham Gardens is the spectacular, mile-long, Capability Brown-designed Trentham Lake. Studded with small islands the Lake is alive with the sights and sounds of a wonderful array of wildlife. The circular lakeside walk takes in views of the River Trent, ancient wildflower meadows and woodlands, through the cascading weir and along atmospheric nature trails. There is so much to explore and be inspired by, including the bold and dramatic naturalistic planting design; ‘modern meadows’ by Nigel Dunnett creator of the acclaimed plantings at the Olympic Park, London. Created for successional seasonal interest and environmental suitability.
