Autism Friendly Day at Monkey World
On selected dates through 2020, Monkey World is holding Autism Friendly Days! The park has always prided itself on the access facilities available, from a range of mobility scooters, to the primate sensory statues around the park.
To help autistic visitors and their families further, on selected dates, visitors with autism can access the park at 9am, an hour before public opening time, to avoid the rush at the gates.
All gates will be open so there will be very little in the way of queueing. Our staff have been briefed and are aware of additional needs. There is no need to pre-book. Normal entrance fees will apply. Please bring appropriate DLA/ PIP documentation to benefit from essential carers free entry.
The park will also have a sensory trail especially for the day, and dedicated chill-out spaces. Monkey World is proud to work with the Minecraft and Meltdowns group, who will be supporting the day with sensory play and drop-in support.
With this, and over 260 rescued monkeys and apes, and 3 play areas, Monkey World hopes to be a great day out- for all.

For those planning multiple visits over the summer, an adoption pass is a great way to make the pennies go further- as well as helping fund future rescue and rehabilitation work. For just £25 for a child, the adoptive parent will receive a certificate, photo, 3 newsletters a year and entry pass to the park for a whole year!
