New Place was Shakespeare's family home from 1597 until he died in the house in 1616. Tragically, the house was demolished in 1759. A registered garden now stands in its place, designed to commemorate the importance of the site and allow visitors to...more

If ever you visit Stratford-upon-Avon you must go here. The place is set on the grounds of the building and bronze lines indicate where rooms would have been. We started with a talk about the history of the building and Shakespeare’s time there. The young...More

Although the house no longer stands going inside the exhibition tells you the history of the house and what it would have looked like. There are hands on things available to assist in the history and the gardens are absolutely beautiful. The sculptures are fascinating...More

We only stayed about an hour as the boys 9 and 12 were not particularly interested in this place. The garden is lovely and as the weather was nice it was great to walk around. There are plenty of places to sit and view the...More

Visited New Place following the restoration. Had been before it had been restored and excavations were going on at that time in 2010. Still has a beautiful atmosphere and the work following the restoration is tasteful. Lovely to sit in gardens but as we had...More

Ok for a nice walk but not very exciting if you have children but on the 5 place ticket it costs little and is educational.

This is where Shakespeare lived with his family after moving from his parents' home. But the house was demolished (an interesting story) and the exhibition is inside what was the house next door. It is a little underwhelming and is perhaps still a work in...More

Yes, you go to the site of Shakespeare’s house which was demolished hundreds of years ago. However the gardens are amazing and the statues in them interesting. The casting of minds eye with the cast full sized hawthorn tree has to be seen as does...More

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent visit to Shakespeare's New Place. I am happy to read you enjoyed our beautiful gardens and thought-provoking statues - the absence of a traditional Tudor property here means tribute is instead paid to the Bard...More

This is perhaps the least attractive of the Shakespeare sites because in reality there's nothing there. The building was demolished by the owners in the 17th Century, leaving just an open site. The gardens are very good as it the presentation by the guide, but...More

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
