This is not actually the house Shakespeare lived in as a successful play write but the site of that house. The best part of this attraction is the garden with numerous sculptures dedicated to the works of Shakespeare. Value for money when part of the Multi attraction ticket.

Fully history, this is a good visit. However, very expensive so recommend buying a combined ticket. Only takes an hour if you go slowly!

It is great to end here as it puts all the other information into place and makes it more understandable. the history is amazing it is just like stepping into another age. Well worth the effort to visit. Some of the information is much more enjoyable to adults but the visual bits appealed the the younger ones.

As it's included in the ticket price for Shakespeare's house we thought "May as well" . So glad we did though! The interior is lovely and the gardens are graced with many statues that depict the works of Shakespeare. Fascinating..

The guide who we caught the end of talking was interesting and knowledgeable. The house itself wasn't the original but do help preserve the foundations of Shakespeare's property. Frustrating that you need to pay for a year pass to all the properties as we only really wanted to visit one. I've been to more interesting historical houses but it's not... More

It was interesting to see although I felt more could be made of it. There were activities for children but it would be good to see some more information. The staff were very helpful and had a lot of knowledge.

This is the site of the house Shakey lived in with his wife and kids, but unfortunately the house has been demolished. The house next door (Nash House) still remains and here you can find out about the archaeological dig which took place to learn about New Place. It's interesting and the staff helpful but the exhibition and space upstairs... More

Visited many times, but yesterday was lucky enough to have a member of the staff give a talk with photos (20 minutes) and put into perspective Shakespeare's life at the time he lived in New Place. We learned about the two buildings plus the inhabitants and how New Place came to be demolished. Also about - Shakespeare commuting between Stratford... More
