Well laid out tour and guides knowledgeable, approachable and very informative. Gardens lovely. Very much a part of the Bard's life so a must see en route from his cradle to grave.

Even thought the actual house is not there anymore the gardens are lovely. There is a brief history of the old house inside the new building.

Probably just bad luck. The garden, especially the statues in it, is interesting and we would have liked to explore it more but it seems to have been recently fertilized and the smell was so overwhelming that we did not even go into the building.

You do have to pay to get into the attraction, but it is worth the money. If you purchase one of the three-attraction day passes, the New House can be one of your attractions. It's a really cool artistic interpretation of... More
