Apart from a pretty garden, these houses really do not offer much to the customer and are overpriced. Poor tourists. They buy a yearly, expensive ticket and barely get to use it.

You have to include this on the tour as it' s close to the town centre but such a shame that a previous idiot owner had the house knocked down. Excellent garden

This was a lovely house and had great activities for all the family, and when we visited in August, it had a tent in the back garden for kids to do many activities, to explore and create. A great idea to make the visit suitable for all the family. Beautiful gardens and with a wonderfully preserved house.

The house is well-kept and there is a huge lovely garden behind the property. Not much to see to be frank compared to other houses such as Shakespeare's birthplace but the garden is a hidden gem!

In my opinion the least interesting and attractive of all the Shakespeare properties - staff still good though and the story of the garden space is interesting.

We went to see this as part of the ticket to visit Shakespeare's family homes. The house was nice, although I didn't find it as informative as the other houses, the garden was lovely and quite a surprise. My two children under five loved the garden with its flowers, pathways and hidden spots. There was a tent in the garden... More

We thought we were going to see where Shakespeare had lived but in actual fact it was next door as his house was pulled down and is now replaced by gardens. The house next door is allegedly where he wrote some of his works and there is a display about his house next door.

A bit of a disappointment as the New Place doesnt exist anymore and had been demolished but the gardens were very nice - so a good experience overall

This house was very interesting and our 10 year old had a great time with the dressing up box and deciding what character to dress up as. The gardens are lovely in spite of the weather and the archeology tent with various activities was very good to engage a 10 year old who may have got a bit under the... More
