Garden Architectural Building
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. Take a video tour of the Shakespeare houses and gardens, pay a visit to Shakespeare's grave, and explore a Tudor house and traditional knot garden. There are activities in the family marquee, Tudor games in the gardens (weekends and school holidays), and finds from a three-year archaeological dig.

  • I can't wait to visit their beautiful garden again!
  • Not very interesting with a boring and poorly planned exhibit. Pretty gardens and statues.
  • What a disappointment after checking that the house was being opened on 1st July so decided to have a break in the area just to visit New place, only to find it was not opening until mid August.
  • Wonderful display and lovely gardens.
  • The house itself only consists of a living room and a few items in the above rooms, with an otherwise unrelated exhibition about famous Shakespeare characters (fun though!) The garden is beautiful though and definitely worth a visit.
