A lovely sunny afternoon- perfect to walk around the gardens and looking at the sculptures before going inside the buildings- a guide gave us lots of information as they give a short talk every hour on the hour, well worth listening to.

Nice historic place to visit. It is one of the attractions listed on the full story ticket. The new place is not there anymore. It was demolished. There is nice gardens and they have guides to explain the things over there.

Considering there is no building, we were pleasantly surprised by what we found at New Place, especially the informative talk from the staff. Well worth visiting to complete the picture of Shakespeare’s life.

Shakespeare's New Place, rather the house and grounds he occupied from 1594 to his death in 1616, can be seen on a combined ticket with his birthplace, Hall's Croft as well as Mary Arden's House and Anne Hathaway's Cottage. Entrance from the street provides direct...More
