4.6/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web
Immerse yourself in the sights, smells, and sounds of a working Tudor farm. Mary Arden's Farm is the farm where Shakespeare's mother, Mary Arden, grew up. Experience the daily tasks and activities--such as threshing, bread-making, and animal-tending--that a young William Shakespeare would have been familiar with from visits to his grandparents. 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 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.😃
  • Had a great day here. The weather helped, but whilst it wasn't huge there was a lot going on and the staff really brought it to life.
  • Relaxed place with good mix of animals and historical buildings. Have got a yearly pass and is good if you have young children. Small playground and plenty of places to have a picnic. Easy to get up close to pigs, chickens, cows, duck, geese and birds of prey.
  • Loved every minute of our time here, so much to see, really enjoyed seeing the family dressed up and eating and drinking all the home cooked meals that they would of had all those years ago, and being able to talk to them and they were happy to give any information, about what they were eating etc, the food looked and smelt delicious, wouldn't of minded joining them, lol. We also enjoyed the falconry display.
  • Fantastic place love the this place living history & plenty of fun for the family
