Nashs House (Stratford-upon-Avon)

Nash's House is an attractive timber framed house in the splendid Warwickshire market town of Stratford-upon-Avon.

It is one of several houses in the town associated with the great dramatist William Shakespeare, who was born in Stratford and buried in Holy Trinity Church.

It was the house of Thomas Nash, who married Shakespeare's granddaughter.

Today, the house contains period furniture and archaeological exhibits, as well as items connected with David Garrick's pioneering Shakespeare Festival of 1769.

Beside Nash's House are the gardens of New Place, where Shakespeare died in 1616. The original New Place was destroyed in 1702, and a later owner, Rev. Francis Gastrell, demolished the replacement house in 1759 because he was tired of sightseers.
