Owner description: 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.

A wonderful place to stop off from the Bus Tour, and spend a few hours exploring. Don't let this be the last Shakespeare dwelling you vist.

“A calm Sunday morning!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2012

Had a lovely morning wandering around the farm. Had nursed ambitions to walk there the previous day however discovered it really is quite a long way out of Stratford!
