Fodor's Expert Review Mary Arden’s Farm

Stratford-upon-Avon House/Mansion/Villa Fodor's Choice

This charming working farm was the childhood home of Shakespeare’s mother, Mary Arden, and offers great insight into the farming methods employed in Tudor England. The rural heritage attraction, just 3 miles outside Stratford, is great for kids, who can try their hand at basket weaving and gardening, listen as the farmers explain their work in the fields, watch the cooks prepare food in the Tudor farmhouse kitchen, or play in the amazing timber-framed adventure playground. There are also daily falconry and archery displays and opportunities to meet the farm animals, as well as a good café.
