Nash's House and New Place

Chapel Street, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire CV37 6EP
21 Chapel Street Stratford-upon-Avon England CV37 6EP GB

This beautiful timber-framed house of Thomas Nash, who was first husband Shakespeare’s granddaughter, Elizabeth, is definitely worth visiting. As you walk around this building, you’ll learn about Shakespeare’s life and on the ground floor you’ll get the chance to see a room furnished as it was in Nash’s time. You’ll also find information about New Place, which was the house Shakespeare bought in 1577, and how it came to be destroyed. Take a stroll around the foundations of this property, which is next door to Nash’s House, and imagine what the second largest house in Stratford was like in its time. Shakespeare lived in New Place when he was not in London and he died here in 1616.
