Bat Walk - Anne Hathaway’s Cottage

Take a walk on the wild side as we go on the search for the bats who make their home in the grounds of Anne Hathaway’s Cottage and uncover the secrets of creating a bat-friendly environment.

Join your guide from Warwickshire Bats as they take you on a journey into the darkness and illuminate the fascinating world of bats, dispelling the myths and highlighting the important contributions they bring to a habitat.

You’ll also discover the work that has gone into ensuring that the grounds of Anne Hathaway’s Cottage are able to support a thriving bat population, alongside the wider biodiversity efforts that are underway as part of our Sustainable Shakespeare initiative.

Guests are recommended to wear weather-appropriate clothing and footwear as most of the tour will take place outside. Before you set off you can enjoy a warming drink of tea, coffee or hot chocolate from the Pea Shed. Arrival from 20:30 when refreshments will be available to purchase.

Organised by The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust
Tickets are £10 per person.
