Shakespeare’s final home was New Place in Stratford-Upon-Avon. He lived there for 19 years and died there in 1616. The house itself was demolished in the 18th century, but the site of New Place is now owned by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, who have completed extensive archaeological research at the site in recent years.
In time for the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death in 2016, the trust is currently re-developing this major heritage site to provide an imaginative re-interpretation for the enjoyment of visitors from all over the world.
This video trails the re-opening New Place in Spring 2016, generating interest and motivating donors to get involved with the New Place project.
