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.

Not really suitable for over 10's or rural children. Overpriced entrance and refreshments with extra cost on the day for archery. Ideal for toddlers and tinies. Have been to many better 'farm' themed attractions.

This Tudor farm gives a excellent opportunity to see how live was in the time of Shakespeare. We watched the Tudors having lunch and enjoyed it very much. The Tudors gave excellent explanations about their habits.

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