Stratford-upon-Avon and the Heart of England Sights

Mary Arden's Farm

Updated 05/29/2014

Fodor's Review

A working farm, where food is grown using methods common in the 16th century, is the main attraction at Mary Arden's House (the childhood home of Shakespeare's mother) and Palmer's Farm. This bucolic stop is great for kids, who can try their hand at basket weaving and gardening, listen as the farmers explain their work in the fields, and watch the cooks prepare food in the Tudor farmhouse kitchen. It all brings the past to life. There are crafts exhibits, a café, and

a garden. The site is 3 miles northwest of Stratford; you need to walk or drive here, or else go with a tour.
