Enjoy all things woolly at Mary Arden's Farm...

It’s Woolly Week this May Half Term at Mary Arden’s Farm with traditional sheep shearing and craft demonstrations daily. Help with tasks like skep-making and basket- weaving and 'earn your keep' with traditional chores such as threshing, bread-making, gardening and animal-tending.  See rare breed animals and explore the nature trails, discovering abundant wildlife including woodpeckers and rabbits along the way.

Explore the home where Shakespeare's mother, Mary Arden, grew up and experience for yourself the daily routine, skills and crafts the young William would have known from visits to his grandparents in the 1570s.

Mary Arden's Farm is a working farm with lots of seasonal activities and Tudor events.  With free repeat visits for 12 months there is always something new to see and do and plenty of reasons to visit time and time again. Look out for the daily activity boards during your visit.

Admission: Adult £13.25, Children £8.50, Concession £12.25, Family £35 (2+4)
