An amazing experience, I will go again. Just imagining that I went makes me emotional, thanks to Getyourguide. Shakespeare is part of my professional life that I love so much. I am an English teacher and I work on Bardo plays with my students. What a day, what a ride, what a thrill!

The guide at New Place was fantastic. His actual birth place was way too busy. Limiting amount of people that are allowed at any one time would help tremendously.

It works really well as there were 6 and it made it so much easier booking it and beating the queues

Fantastic value for money! A truly satisfying and beautiful experience.

Avoided long wait

Very good way to see the various house throughout a period of time.
