Mary Arden’s farm, Wilmcote, England

Mary Arden's farm, Wilmcote

Shakespeare’s mother’s farm is a little way outside Stratford in the rural setting of Wilmcote. The stunning timbered Tudor farmhouse is still there, and is now home to the Shakespeare Countryside Museum. This is a great one for families with young children as there’s a lot to see and do, from falconry displays to demonstrations at the blacksmith’s forge, and even Tudor archery lessons.
