Pay a visit to Anne Hathaway’s cottage and uncover five centuries of stories and rare artefacts. From there head to Hall's Croft to see a medical exhibition exploring practices of the time with added ick factor! Then discover Shakespeare's New Place. It features stunning gardens, sculptures and an exhibition on the site of his family home where Shakespeare later lived, and eventually died.

Kids will love Mary Arden’s Farm which is situated on nine acres of beautiful woodlands and orchards, and is run as an actual working Tudor farm. You can learn from the farmhands and meet some rare animals. Budding bards can run wild in the playground and get involved with craft sessions, holiday activities, folk music and seasonal events like National Poetry Day. You can also enjoy goose-herding (!) and falconry demonstrations.
