New Place & Nash's House closure

New Place & Nash’s House is currently closed for essential conservation work, including structural repairs.

Visitors with a valid ticket to New Place & Nash's House now have the opportunity to visit Harvard House; a beautiful Elizabethan town house in the centre of Stratford-upon-Avon. 

We are also working towards a project that aims to re-imagine the site of Shakespeare's final home. Read more about our plans for New Place.
