Creative Explorer Backpack

Be Inspired in Shakespeare’s House

New for this year, give your little ones the chance to explore Shakespeare’s family homes with our Explorer Backpacks, available from 25 May.

At Shakespeare’s New Place pick up a Creative Explorer Backpack and discover the place where William Shakespeare himself wrote many of his most well know plays.

Get up close with the sculptures in the Great Garden using one of the magnifying glass or draw what you think Shakespeare’s home could have looked like on a chalkboard and then see how high you can build a tower using the stacking blocks.

Included in our Creative Explorer Backpack

● Viewing frames

● Stacking blocks

● Chalkboards

● Magnifying Glasses

● Binoculars
