Lord's in London and Headingley in Leeds will host the Tests, while Trent Bridge, Old Trafford, Edgbaston, The Oval, Chester-le-Street and the Ros Bowl in Southampton have been afforded the limited-overs fixtures.

"Next summer promises to be a hugely exciting international season with England's bid to regain the Ashes set to be one of the major highlights of the sporting year," said ECB chief executive David Collier.

"We're also delighted to be hosting New Zealand again across all three formats of the international game and would like to thank all those county and international venues who will be hosting our touring teams next year."

The English and Black Caps met for two Tests in May 2013, with the hosts achieving comfortable back-to-back victories in London and Leeds.
