History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The house holds a museum of local history, focussing 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.
A viewing platform overlooks the Tudor knot garden of New Place, laid out on the site of Shakespeare's house. Exhibitions showcase archaeological finds unearthed during the excavation and restoration of New Place.
The ground floor of the house is occupied by a shop where you get tickets for New Place, while the upper floor holds the exhibition and several activity rooms.
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. It is very well signposted from around central Stratford - just follow the pedestrian signs for New Place.
