Mary Arden's Farm
Station Road, Wilmcote, Warwickshire, CV37 9UN
Mary Arden's Farm - family home of Shakespeare's mother.
Step back in time with all the sights, sounds and smells of a real working Tudor farm. Meet their costumed residents as they go about their daily tasks of cooking, tending crops and feeding the rare breed animals. Feel free to ask them about country life in Shakespeare's day and discover how people lived and worked according to the farming calendar. Watch falconry displays, explore the countryside and nature trails, and get 'hands-on' with rural crafts and traditional pastimes.
Look out for their full programme of seasonal events, from Tudor festivals and animal shows to Apple Days and Halloween fun. Just a short walk from Wilmcote station, Mary Arden's Farm offers a great day out for all the family. On site: Children's play ground, gift shop, cafe, picnic area, free parking and facilities for visitors with disabilities.
Opening times: 18 Mar-29 Oct: 10am - 5pm
