Fodor's England 2014
Nash's House Review
This heavily restored house was the residence of Thomas Nash, who married Shakespeare's last direct descendant, his granddaughter Elizabeth Hall. It has been furnished in 17th-century style and contains a museum containing finds from the excavations of New Place, the house in which Shakespeare died in 1616. Built in 1483 "of brike and tymber" for a lord mayor of London, New Place was Stratford's grandest piece of real estate when Shakespeare bought it in 1597 for £60. It was torn down in 1759 by the Reverend Francis Gastrell, who was angry at the hordes of Shakespeare-related sightseers. You can see an Elizabethan knot garden in the gardens.
