It has been made into a Living History Museum with lots of activities including blacksmithing, falconry, basket weaving, plus hay bale mazes, and more.
Fortunately, we didn't have to do the dishes!
This Museum is a combination of Mary Arden's childhood home (Shakespeare's grandparents house) and also the neighbor Palmer's farm. So after touring the farm we entered a Tudor home.
The gardens featured dye plants, medicinal plants, and flowering plants for cut flowers.
The rest of our day included a visit to Shakespeare's birthplace on Henley Street in Stratford.
Charming gardens in the rear, and a Shakespearean troupe of performers that were eager to act out any personal requests.
