New Place & Nash's House
Visit Nash's House and the site of Shakespeare's last home at New Place where he died in 1616.Nash's House was named after Thomas Nash, first husband of Shakespeare's granddaughter, Elizabeth. Today, it is a well preserved Tudor building and the ground floor is furnished as it would have been in Nash's day.
Next door to Nash's House are the foundations of New Place, the house bought by William Shakespeare in 1597. By this time, Shakespeare was an established playwright and had amassed enough wealth to afford this elaborate new family home. New Place was the second biggest house in Stratford at the time and it was where Shakespeare lived when he was not in London. He chose to return to this house in later life, so this is the site where we believe Shakespeare wrote some of his later works such as TheTempest. He eventually died here in 1616.
