About

*Temporarily closed*

Shaw House is closed to the public and events cancelled until further notice. Please note: this does not affect private bookings or the Registration Service, which is open as usual.

 

Shaw House was built by a Newbury clothier in 1581 and retains much of its original Tudor architecture.

Shaw House is one of the best preserved Elizabethan mansions in England. Over the centuries Shaw House has welcomed royalty, seen action during the Civil War, housed soldiers during World War II and schooled generations of local children. The House is open to the public from February to September and offers a year round programme of events and family activities. Entry to the House and grounds is free but donations are most welcomed.
