Shakespeare Connected - Imagining New Place

8. Shakespeare’s Garden

This colourful postcard shows the famous New Place Knot Garden. The garden was designed in 1919-20 by Ernest Law and was built in this fashionable Tudor style to show the type of garden Shakespeare might have owned. Advertised as 'Shakespeare's Knot Garden', it became a beloved feature of New Place during the 1900s, inspiring visitors, artists and the Stratford community for years to come.
