Mary Arden's Farm

Mary Arden's House

Mary Arden's House is the childhood home of Shakespeare's mother and sits alongside Palmer’s Farm, a living history experience transporting visitor’s back to the 1570’s.

Help with tasks like skep-making and basket-weaving and 'earn your keep' at Palmer's Farm with traditional chores such as threshing, bread-making, gardening and animal-tending.   

  • Try your hand at have-a-go archery (school and bank holidays)
  • Watch our daily falconry displays
  • See our rare breed animals
  • Explore our nature trails, discovering abundant wildlife including woodpeckers and rabbits along the way
  • Enjoy refreshments and light meals served all day in the cafe
  • Kids under 10 can enjoy our timber framed adventure playground

Mary Arden's Farm is a working farm, open from March - November. With lots of seasonal activities and Tudor events and free repeat visits for 12 months there are lots of reasons to visit time and time again. Look out for the daily activity boards during your visit.

Visiting Mary Ardens House
Allow up to two hours to view both Mary Arden’s House and Palmer's Farm, as well as the falconry displays, prize-winning livestock and the shop.

You may need longer to enjoy further the grounds and the walks.
