Trentham Monkey Forest

A forest where you can meet monkeys and walk freely with them is reopening next month and it's only an hour away from Manchester.

Trentham Monkey Forest, which is bustling with swinging free-range monkeys, will open its doors to the public just before February half-term – making it the perfect family day out.

The attraction is located in Stoke and described online as a "woodland and meadow with 140 monkeys living in freedom, with forest path, info boards and videos."

In total there are 140 Barbary macaques present at the 60-acre forest and you'll even get the opportunity to learn about them in hourly feeding talks – which take place at quarter past each hour. They are a must watch.

Most visitors spend a few hours within the monkey enclosure and are free to re-enter as many times as they wish during their trip.

You can even take as many snaps as you want while you're there – to ensure you get perfect content for the Gram.
