One of Staffordshire’s biggest tourist attractions is to close for the ‘unforseeable future’.
Trentham Monkey Forest closed today in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and in line with government guidelines.
Park Director Matt Lovatt said, “We want to do the right thing for staff, visitors and monkeys.
“Although we are an outdoor attraction with plenty of wide-open spaces, we feel this is the best step to ensure we protect the park from the developing situation.’’
“It’s an uncertain time for everyone and we will keep the public smiling with monkey updates across our social media pages, so for now this is the best place to get your monkey fix!
“We’re unsure when we will reopen but will do our very best to give our visitors as much notice as possible.”
“The team want to reassure the public that the 140 Barbary macaques that live at Trentham will continue to go about their daily lives, just like they would if the forest was open to the public.”
