Shakespeare's New Place, Stratford-upon-Avon

3.6
#6 of 16 in Parks in Stratford-upon-Avon
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.

  • A wonderfull visit even when the sun isnt out. So much to see and like with only the help of a map you get at the entrance. An abundance of staff if you want to know more.  more »

  • Not my favourite of the sites but still interesting. Listen to the guide so you find out all the background information. The street of the site, it’s development and ending is definitely worth hearing...  more »

  • Tickets should be purchased in advance. Inventive exhibits inside and exquisite gardens outside. The gardens are full of interesting statues to contemplate and many have corresponding quotes from The Bard. The gardens are well suited to fans but there are some creative and engaging activities for children inside the building.
  • Beautiful gardens and interesting exhibition. Best see as part of a package of visits to Shakespeare venues in and around Stratford. Very helpful staff.
  • Ticket for grouped attractions very worth while, try to find discount on pre booking bus tour. Not much here from Shakespeare's time but lots of artistic tributes and the staff member who welcomed us on site gave a great introduction and explained what it would have been like for Shakespeare.
  • Full of history. Beautiful gardens. Knowledgeable guides and a fun question sheet for the children. A great place to visit.
  • Excellent place to visit. Small and lovely gardens. Our two little girls loved it.
