Very similar to rest of Shakespeare's birthplace sites. Gardens are beautiful and well maintained. Does not take up too much time to look round the house. Some good descriptions by tour guide.

I've already written about the other sites from the Birthplace Trust and this is no different with it's friendly staff, palpable history and the best grounds of any of the houses (Mary Arden's Farm excluded). The garden is beautiful and the statues fascinating.

Because of the name of the site I expected to find 2 houses - but no. New Place was demolished years ago and where it was is now part of the attractive gardens. Time Team were apparantly here at some stage trying to find evidence of the house.

Thanks for taking the time to review your visit to New Place and Nash's House. It's interesting that you should mention the fact that New Place was sadly demolished in 1702. We're actually working on a project to reimagine the site of Shakespeare's final home in a whole new way. The project is still in its early stages, but through... More

Walked by Shakespeare's home not realising the history and tail behind it. Home a grand daughter, but next to Shakespeare's home which was demolished due to taxes of all things! You must visit.

The house is a beautifully preserveed and presented building, with imaginative trails provided for youngsters while parents relax and take in the history. Very welcoming staff. The top 10 heroes and villains exhibition was amusing, but the trump card is the Great Garden. A stunning oasis of colour and tranquillity, dotted with fascinating sculptures, in the heart of the town.

See the lovely house and gardens and learn about how ailments were treated in Tudor times. Lots of strange remedies for illnesses, some of which have been validated (also how some of our sayings came into being - for a cough a small from was suspended in the patient's throat and the excretions swallowed, it was later found that the...

If we had come here without listening to the guides, this place would be relatively uninteresting, with just the house and gardens. However, the guide's explanations - of how the place used to be, of how it got demolished by a future owner in an act of spite, and about the excavating efforts etc - were extremely illustrative and insightful....

We really enjoyed this place. To walk the halls, and experience the home and gardens was quite enjoyable. Anne Hathaways Cottage was better, but this was worth the stop.
