Covid-19 (Coronavirus)

We know that many of you are eager to visit the Shakespeare family homes and gardens in Stratford-upon-Avon as soon as possible.  Please bear with us.

While we welcome the Government’s announcement that museums in England can reopen from 4 July, unfortunately 4 of the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust sites must remain closed for the immediate future. Shakespear's Birthlace will re-open on 1st August 2020.

Please visit website for further information.


New Place, the next chapter

Be inspired at the site that was Shakespeare’s family home for 19 years, and uncover the fascinating story of the house that is no longer there. During the 19 years Shakespeare lived at New Place, he was at the height of his creative powers, and an important local figure. Find out what Shakespeare family life was like in and uncover the story behind why Shakespeare’s house was demolished - try a free talk from one of our expert guides and see history for yourself in the interactive exhibition next door. Centuries after Shakespeare’s death, the gardens still celebrate his legacy. They’re a feast for the senses all year round, filled with flowers and fragrances, and sculptures inspired by his works, life and times.
