Step back in time to the years of Shakespeare before enjoying some Midlands treats with this Visit to Anne Hathaway’s Cottage and Gardens with a Light Lunch for Two.
Anne Hathaway’s Cottage is where Shakespeare’s wife lived when she was young, a spacious cottage with extensive gardens and grounds. Containing many family items and furniture from Anne’s time, you can walk through the cottage’s rooms and halls and imagine a young William and Anne during their youthful courtship. Wandering outside you can take in nine acres of beautiful gardens and orchards, carefully maintained by the Shakespeare Trust.
At the Cottage Garden Café, you’ll enjoy a light lunch, including the homemade soup of the day, sandwiches, cakes and a pot of tea or coffee - the perfect end to a Shakespearian pilgrimage.
