Nash's House & New Place

Nash's House & New Place


Chapel Street,
CV37 6EP



Nash's House was named after Thomas Nash, first husband of Shakespeare's granddaughter, and a wealthy local property owner. Today, it is a well preserved Tudor building and the ground floor is furnished as it would have been in Nash's day.

Next door to Nash's House are the foundations of New Place. This was the house bought by William Shakespeare in 1597. By the late 1590s, Shakespeare was an established playwright and had amassed enough wealth to afford a new family home.

New Place was the second biggest house in Stratford at the time and it was where Shakespeare lived when he was not in London. He died here in 1616.

Discover the site of the place where we believe Shakespeare wrote some of his later works such as The Tempest and learn about the finds from the three year archaeological dig featured on TV's Time Team and National Treasures Live.

Nash’s House & New Place will also be closing on 3 November for restoration and reinterpretation (estimated to last until Spring 2016).
