Fantastic classic Tudor building with austere but intriguing interior, and tranquil adjacent garden on the site of Shakespeare’s former home next door. Interesting sculptures representing various of William's plays. Covered by ticket for all Shakespeare sites. Apparently "in need of conservation work... will be closed from 3 November 2014... From 10 November, visitors will have the opportunity to visit Elizabethan... More

We went here after visiting the Shakespeare's birthplace. We wasn't that impressed as there didn't seem to be a lot here and the gardens were closed due to the bad weather. only little items with typed paper with a few info on and nothing like the other houses. A little disappointed and probably wouldn't return, however good location.

We were one of the very last visitors here before it shuts its doors until 2016 and were very warmly welcomed! The level of activities put on for children in the tent in the beautiful gardens during half term was amazing. They really did go the extra mile here. I could listen to the tour guides all day. It was... More

We visited this property using the 5 site pass that is recommended when visiting the various Shakespeare related places in Stratford Upon Avon. For us, this was the least informative and only took around 15/20 to stroll around the house and sculptured gardens. There was an exhibition which explored the 10 most popular Shakespeare characters upstairs but the highlight was... More

Nash's house was really lovely but the real stars in my opinion were the sculptures in the Elizabethan Garden at New Place which were great fun and absolutely fabulous. Having visited the other Shakespeare houses it can get a bit 'samey' - these gardens really bring Shakespeare alive and are a really different way to appreciate the Bard's work. They... More

We started here and, as well as being able to get our ticket to all 5 places, we asked some difficult questions about the place which were answered knowledgeably. I hope the renovations do not change it radically or spoil the effect (see Shakespeared's birthplace comment)

Centrally located so easy to pop in when you have half an hour to spare. Adds a bit more to Shakespeare's story.

Loved the building, the gardens and the very helpful and informative staff. Another wonderfully immersive experience where a little imagination can take you back to Shakespeare's time.
