Summer Holidays at Shakespeare's Family Homes

Part of  Summer Holidays

Play games through the ages during the school holidays.

18 July - 31 August 2015

The summer holidays are the perfect time to explore Shakespeare's family homes and there will be something for everyone throughout the school holidays.

We're going to spend the summer playing games from throughout the ages! Try your hand at Tudor favourites like quoits and loggits, hook a duck at the Victorian fair, enjoy parlour games from WWI England and try out archery and swordplay to mark the anniversary of the battle of Agincourt.

Activites take place from 12pm - 4pm daily and are included in admission, so if you already have a valid ticket you can come along for free!


Shakespeare's Birthplace - The Age of Agincourt

Mary Arden's Farm - Outdoor Tudor games

Anne Hathaway's Cottage & Gardens - Victorian games

Hall's Croft - WWI games

Harvard House - Indoor Tudor games




Don't miss our fabulous family trails that bring each of the houses to life with extra puzzles and treasures hunts for children of all ages.

Match the Shakespearian fathers and sons around Shakespeare's Birthplace, create a magical spell at Mary Arden's Farm, play eye spy at Anne Hathaway's Cottage, help John and Susanna plan their party outfits at Hall's Croft and spot the luxury items from the New World at Harvard House!

Discover all this and more at Shakespeare's family homes this summer.
