Visit Shakespeare’s final place of residence where he died in 1616. Shakespeare's New Place are a well-preserved Tudor building and a house bought by William Shakespeare in 1597, which are side-by-side. It is believed this is the site where Shakespeare wrote some of his later works such as The Tempest.

There are activities in the family marquee, Tudor games in the gardens (weekends and school holidays), and finds from a three-year archaeological dig.

    the visit in itself is interesting. access to it is through the courtyard, where there is a sort of herbalist with various aromatic plants, then moves into a large garden with statues, a reading corner, a truck-cafeteria, and little more, then this access to housing, where you can dress up with some masks and hats, and finally any room for activities with children. Yes it is expensive and does not carry much interest as the daughter of Shakespeare's House

    The garden is really nice and worth visiting. The house is a re-created one and except for representing the period, does not have much value.  more »

    This is the place where shakespears house once stood. A guide gives a talk every half an hour and this is a must as it tells you how it was all set out and makes it more interesting  more »

  • Really not my cup of tea. To sum it up 'Shakespeare might have been here!' The place is brand New, hence the name and actually gave me no sense of any history. Yes the art installation are nice but its more like a gallery for art inspired by Shakespeare. I would visit one of the other attractions available on your ticket
  • Very beautiful gardens, but the exhibition house could be updated more. Caught some Milan actors performing in the gardens at the time which was really good.
  • Beautiful courtyard. The biggest house in town at the time.
  • Nicely refurbished. Could be a bit more detailed in exhibits. Felt a bit sparse.
  • Lovely garden in which to to soak up some spring sunshine and chillax with a coffee from the bicycle coffee man :D
