Discover Shakespeare’s Family Homes 
Explore Shakespeare’s family homes, farm and gardens and discover how much he influences our everyday lives for centuries on.
Be inspired by theatrical performances, take part in family activities, events and festivals and step back in time with our resident Tudors.
Explore, enjoy and be surprised by Shakespeare and his fascinating life story, whatever your age.

  1. Shakespeare’s Birthplace
    ​Begin here where you can explore the extraordinary story of William and the house he was born and grew up in.  Our fascinating guides will captivate you with tales of his father’s business ventures.  Take centre stage and bring his works to life with our costumed troupe, Shakespeare Aloud!
  2. Anne Hathaway’s Cottage & Gardens
    Follow young Shakespeare’s footsteps to the Cottage where he courted an older woman.  Our guides will bring this Tudor love story to life in its original setting.  Garden lovers and families can explore nine acres of beautiful cottage gardens and woodlands walks, or follow the sculpture trail.  Finish your visit with refreshments in the newly refurbished Cottage Garden Cafe.
  3. Hall’s Croft
    Continue to the elegant Tudor home of Shakespeare’s daughter Susanna and her husband Dr John Hall.  Read Shakespeare’s words on war, loss and patriotism in our new exhibition commemorating the outbreak of World War One.  The walled garden is planted with fragrant herbs used in Dr Hall’s remedies.  Unwind in the cafe or browse hand crafted local gifts in The Arter gift shop.
  4. Shakespeare’s New Place
    Shakespeare’s New Place is the newly transformed site of Shakespeare’s family home for nineteen years of his life. Walking through the Gatehouse, just where his front door used to be, visitors can walk in his footsteps, discovering the footprint of his house. There are beautifully restored gardens and stunning contemporary sculptures which bring his work and influences to life. Meanwhile a new exhibition throws light on Shakespeare the family man, homeowner and successful entrepreneur.
  5. Mary Arden’s Farm
    Visit the family farm where Shakespeare’s mother grew up. Experience the sights, sounds and smells of a working Tudor farm and follow our resident Tudors as they work. Meet rare breed animals, try your hand at archery and falconry, or explore the nature trails and playground. There are free events throughout the school holidays and a new exhibition charting 500 years of the farm’s history.
