It is believed this is the site where Shakespeare wrote some of his later works such as The Tempest.

  • 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
