A family member who lives in Richmond took us here for a tour while we were visiting. While the castle on the outside is large and lovely, the gardens were not quite what I expected. We opted just to tour the gardens so I can't comment on the castle interior. There is a room which details the history of Agecroft... More

We went on a tour last week with 2 adults and 2 children (7 and 3). Our docent, Jane Howells, made the tour interesting for everyone. We are so fortunate to have such a treasure right here in Richmond!

You buy an old English Castle that's falling down and being demolished, break it down into little pieces, ship it to America, rebuild it and call it home. At least that way you can claim some "Olde World Heritage". Actually it's quite interesting and stars great docents with a lot of information. We learned what it must have been like... More

Fabulous place to visit. Shakespeare in the summer one of the best evening activities in Richmond. Grounds are beautiful to walk around. Christmas decorations during the season are special. Highly recommend a visit!

The secret to this fascinating attraction is to have Susan Robinson as your docent for the tour. Her stories are fascinating not only because they are true but also because she REALLY knows her history. If you're the least bit interested in the history of this house and the hisory of Richmond, don't miss the opportunity to visit this attraction.... More

Wonderful old manor that was dismantled in England and built in Richmond. Originally meant to be the start of a larger neighborhood with English manors, but England said 'no more moving'! Tour is very informative, but gets a bit long. However, there are benches for seating along the way. If you are looking to see how the 'modern' family (owners)... More

We took the Agecroft Hall tour today and were thrilled. Tracy, our tour guide, kept us all engaged and entertained with her knowledge of the house, its former owners and appropriate events. She provided just the right mix of anecdotes and period details as we walked from room to room, climbed to the minstrel gallery and stood in the Williams... More

You won't believe this house was built in the late 1400's -dismantled, and brought to Richmond in 1927 because once there- you'll think you ARE in England. The house and grounds are a must for all history buffs.

An authentic Tudor building in the middle of Virginia? Yes please! Spent a lovely June evening wondering the grounds and seeing Shakespeare outside at Agecroft Hall presented by Quill Theatre. If you are there during the day, you can take tours and learn about life for the Elizabethans. Good times for history buffs!
