More from the Birthplace Trust
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Wheelchair
So exciting that The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust has transformed the Stratford-upon-Avon world heritage site, NewcPlace after it was demolished in 1759.. The playwright purchased New Place in 1597 when it was the largest single dwelling in the town. It is a Heritage site and Staffordshire University's Centre of Archaeology dug through the site in Chapel Street before the work to reopen it could happen. They discovered a hearth, cold storage pit and even a brewery. Today, it's modern and quirky but telling the story of how the Bard lived there. It is fully accessible - starting at the main level entrance through to the Exhibition Centre on 1st floor. And there are beautiful gardens with space to sit and ponder too. Don't take my word for it come and look for yourself and you don't need to be a Shakespeare addict to enjoy it! .Thanks to SBT who included me in this project from the very first drawings through to today. And there's more to do as areas are tweaked post opening.
