Daily Activities

Meet the Tudors as they run the farm just as Shakespeare’s mother would have done.

Meet our costumed guides as they go about their daily tasks of cooking, tending the land and feeding the rare breed animals using the methods a young William Shakespeare would have experienced. Learn about Tudor table manners and rituals when they gather round the table for dinner at 1pm.

Get hands on with rural crafts and traditional pastimes and try your hand at have-a-go archery (*high days and holidays, additional fee applies). Enjoy falconry displays throughout the day, and explore our nature trails, butterfly bank and willow tunnel. Kids under 10 can also enjoy our timber framed adventure playground.
