Adjacent to the historic New Place, which was the final home of William Shakespeare, Nash's House is a well-preserved Tudor house that is now managed by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.
The History of Nash's House
Nash's House takes its name from Mr Thomas Nash, the first husband of Elizabeth, Shakespeare's granddaughter. The elegant house has been carefully preserved in its original style. When Shakespeare bought New House in 1597, it was the second largest in the town, and as by this time he was already an acclaimed playwright who had became famous in London, he could certainly afford to become a Warwick property magnate as well.
Close to Great Stratford-upon-Avon Hotels
The house is within walking distance of many of Stratford-upon-Avon's hotels and bed and breakfast establishments, some of which offer free WiFi and complimentary breakfasts, so you can begin the day feeling rejuvenated and energised. The building is only minutes from the pleasant New Place Gardens, the Courtyard Theatre and a great selection of top restaurants and cafés. It is also just a short walk from the impressive Holy Trinity Church, a Grade I-Listed landmark that is one of the most visited churches in England, famous for being the location where Shakespeare was baptised and buried.
