How does it work?

The Explorer Passes are available for either 1, 2 or 3 days and for both adults and children (child pass 5 - 16). Children aged 0-5 are free to enter all attractions.

Passes are valid as follows: One-day passes are valid for one calendar day during daylight opening hours, not 24 hours. Two-day passes are valid for two consecutive days, and three-day passes are valid for 3 consecutive days. Validity is limited to 1 year (365 days) from purchase. Simply show your pass at the admission desk or payment point for each attraction to gain free entry.

The cost for an adult Explorer Pass is £49 for the 1-Day pass, £65 for the 2-Day pass and £75 for the 3-Day pass. The passes can be purchased online or upon arrival in Stratford-upon-Avon, Kenilworth, Leamington Spa and Warwick at the Tourist Information Centres. For more information on the Explore Pass, please visit Shakespeare’s England.

  1. We've visited Mary Ardens which is a lovely visit feeding the animals, watch the bird of prey,nice playground and very good cafe- highly recommend for all ages but especially families

    1. We loved visiting Mary Arden's farm too. A wonderful place for a day out with the family.

  2. Yes loved Mary Arden's cottage the best so atmospheric

  3. Yes. But not for at least 20 years even though I only live about 30-40 minutes from most of it.

  4. Not been for ages very tempting must go soon.

  5. What a fantastic prize, good luck all

  6. Love Warwick castle -especially the falconry display . Stratford is lovely for a walk round but not been to the Shakespeare attractions

  7. I have been to Starter to see plays a few times but not been able to go around the attractions. would like to though. I've just finished reading the Shakespeare Secret by JJ Carrell and it talks about Stratford a lot.

  8. I've often visited the area but none of the attractions, apart from Warwick Castle about 30 years ago. I think I would enjoy Hill Close Gardens most of all.

  9. Hill Close Gardens are lovely. I quite like Anne Hathaway's Cottage too (it has around 9 acres of woodland, orchards and gardens).
