The garden was like an oasis in the city centre. Wasn't much interest in the house. Not very interesting for older children.

This is a bit disappointing seeing as Shakespeare's house in no longer there. The gardens at the back, however, are gorgeous. There is a nice colourful knot garden, and a grass area with modern statues linked to Shakespeare's plays - lovely.

Thanks for taking the time to review your visit to New Place and Nash's House. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit, but sorry that you were disappointed to find that New Place no longer stands. We're currently working on a project to re-imagine the space where Shakespeare lived and worked as a successful businessman in Stratford, so... More

An interesting and useful perspective on Shakespeare. As others have said, his house isn't here but what there is to see, is informative - I enjoyed it. The Bronzes of Shakespearean characters was particularly good. It is expensive so best purchase the ticket to all the Shakespeare locations.

The name of this place is a little misleading as 'New Place' Shakespears final home was actually knocked down in the 1700's so there is nothing of it left to see. Just the garden that was part of it. Nash's house however is really nice. It's small but if you have a ticket from Shakespears birthplace your admission is included... More

You can see that they must have been comfortably off - the house is beautifully preserved and the furniture is very nice. The house is set in large grounds and there is a well that is from mediaeval times.

Although the original house has long gone, what is now there is well worth a visit. Very well looked after gardens.

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.
