Harvard House Opens its Doors

Come and visit the home with a link to Harvard University

Harvard House

Following the closure of New Place and Nash’s House for essential conservation work, Harvard House opened its doors to the public on Monday 10 November.

Built in 1596 by the wealthy merchant Thomas Rogers, the house is a fine example of an Elizabethan town house where visitors can discover more about the building and the family’s link with Harvard University in America.

There is plenty for children to do, with a Tudor Apprentice trail running through the house and an opportunity for dressing up in period costume. There is also additional information relating to Stratford’s local community at time and William Shakespeare’s purchase of New Place in 1597.

Harvard House is open daily throughout the winter season from 11am to 4pm, with extended opening hours from March next year. Visit our website to find out more about Harvard House and start planning your visit to Stratford's hidden gem!
