Moth Breakfast

Part of Great Big Green Month

A feast for body and soul as you explore the abundance of biodiversity at Anne Hathaway’s Cottage

Take part in a special event to mark our Big Green Month and enjoy a feast for body and soul as you explore the abundance of biodiversity at Anne Hathaway’s Cottage, including the opportunity to catch a glimpse of some incredibly rare moths.

Start your experience with a light breakfast before setting off into the beautiful surroundings of Anne Hathaway’s Cottage to start spotting the myriad of rare breed moths that call Shottery home.

Eagle-eyed guests may even spot a rare Silver Cloud moth, which have been in decline in recent years but are thriving in the grounds thanks to the hard work of the team at the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust through the Sustainable Shakespeare initiative.

You expert guide, David Brown will be on hand to point out each moth species and why they prefer certain habitats and you’ll be able to explore the tangible changes we’ve made across the property to improve the biodiversity of the area.
