Nash's House
Nash's House
A beautiful timber-framed house in the centre of historic Startford, Nash's House was the home of William Shakespeare's granddaughter, Elizabeth. The house stands immediately beside the site of Shakespeare's own home of New Place. While New Place itself is now little more than foundations and a pretty gardem Nash's House is a wonderfully complete and atmospheric historic building.
The house contains an extensive museum of local history, focussing very much on Shakespeare's life and works. Learn how the original Complete Works of Shakespeare was produced, and hear the tale of how New Place came to be destroyed.

Nash's House was built around 1500, but the frontage on Chapel Street is a more modern restoration. To the rear of the house the construction is 17th century, with an original chimney stack. The house is Grade-I listed in recognition of its historical significance, both architecturally and due to its close connection with Shakespeare and his family.

Nash's House is run by the same registered charity that operates most of the Shakespeare properties in Stratford.
