(4.6/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)

You can even try out other period activities, such as archery, and watch a falconry display. Enjoy a bite to eat at the Mary Arden Cafe, or make use of the grounds’ picnic area. End your visit with a walk on one of the nature trails and spot some of the area’s wildlife. With our custom trip planner, Stratford-upon-Avon attractions like Mary Arden's Farm can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Great insight into Tudor farming and living. Lots of animals for the kids, Archery was great and the birds of prey were sensational.
  • It is run as though it is the time of Shakespeare so visitors can understand the roles of the people at the time. Pay once for a family ticket and the ticket stands for 12 months. A good day out
  • What a lovely place , me and my wife had a lovely time , you can get lost in time , well worth a visit
  • Great for the kids. The farm is well maintained with animals given space to roam. The staff are friendly and happy to help. Kate the cow is very impressive.😃
