Mary Arden's 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.

This was for us the fourth visit to a property of the Shakespeare Trust. Therefore our appreciation of the features and exhibits in the house was almoust exhausted. Nontheless the peculiarity lies essentially outside with the yard and the stables carefully organised for the joy...More

Mary Arden's Farm, is a wonderful experience. So beautifully, convincingly and professionally done. So much so that you truly feel transported back in time to the Tudor way of life and working. We saw many aspects of Tudor farm life demonstrated in a natural way,...More

This was the one place I most wanted to see. The people that work on this Tudor farm are all dressed in costume. In the kitchen they had a real log fire with the old cauldron type cooking pots on, actually cooking a meal which...More

Very interesting and fascinating place to visit. The staff are highly informative and interactive. Beautiful walk around the grounds. I would recommend paying for all the Shakespeare Houses together online prior to visiting as it makes everything much more convenient.

Hi , It's about £13. I think for about £26 you can get the pass that lets you in to 5 venues.
