Mary Arden's Farm is closed for the winter and reopens 10 March 2018. The Farm was the childhood home of Shakespeare's mother. Today you can experience all the sights, sounds and smells of a working Tudor farm, just as it would have been when Shakespeare was a boy. Watch "Tudors" go about their daily routine, see rare breed animals and explore nature trails. There are daily falconry displays and archery at weekends and in school holidays. There is a playground for children from 2 upwards, a picnic area and a cafe. Mary Arden's Farm is a working farm that keeps pace with the season so there is always something new to see and do.The Farm is open seasonally from Easter to the end of October half-term.The Farm is 3 miles from the centre of Stratford-upon-Avon in the village of Wilmcote. There are buses and trains to Wilmcote. The train journey takes 5 minutes and the Farm is a short walk from Wilmcote rail station. It is also a pleasant walk along the canal from the centre of Stratford.

Nice farm - a bit outside of the city of Stratford Upon Avon. Folks working at the farm are wearing period garb and doing period work with old tools. I honestly think this is more worthwhile than a lot of the other Shakespeare related things...More

The costumed staff were very much in character and presented a lifestyle of the era. There were demonstrations of various crafts and cooking and a fabulous show with a hawk and his trainer. Worth the visit.

We were lucky enough to visit the farm on a day when a local primary school were visiting, and in each room they gave short talks on the room or location. It made our visit.
