This area has been really carefully thought out, it’s a must to listen to the talk given by the staff, the gardens are beautiful and the exhibits inside are good for adult and children, very interesting

Although the place of Shakespeare's residence is long gone, the gardens alone make this a worthwhile visit as part of the total Shakespeare immersion.

While a nice place, I wasn't as impressed with the gardens as I thought I would be. A hot summer had had an effect on the gardens but really there didn't seem to be much to do or see.

You would think that going to a site where the house has been demolished would be a waste of time but the guide made the story so interesting that I thoroughly enjoyed the visit

Lovely gardens and the guide who gave us an introduction was good. But expensive at about £12 per person. (Depending on age.) OK if you are doing all the Shakespeare stuff and get a passport ticket, but a lot for the one place.

You do have to pay to get into the attraction, but it is worth the money. If you purchase one of the three-attraction day passes, the New House can be one of your attractions. It's a really cool artistic interpretation of... More
