It is a beautiful home that shows how life used to be complete with gardens to stroll through. You overlook the Jane's River and it is well worth the time. I might no favor this with smaller children as they may bit be interested

Take the tour and hear of Agecroft's History and how it made it to Richmond. Walk the sprawling lawns and gardens overlooking the James River.

Situated on a high bluff looking over the James River, and surrounded by beautiful gardens and expansive landscape sits Agecroft Hall. The massive 16th century home was dismantled in England and reconstructed here to become the home of a romantic and loving couple who did not have children. Sadly, the husband died prematurely and his wife continued to live there... More

Take a trip back to the time of the voyage of Christopher Columbus. Agecroft Manor was in the process of being built in Lancashire England. Time lines and museum mark points of comparison.Artifacts include marvelous coates of armor to skeleton cat remains to ward off evil spirits. Irony that original home of the manor witnessed destruction due to coal mining... More

This was a very interesting house and tour. I wasn't quite expecting it to be furnished with period furniture from its Europe start as a mansion but that made it interesting. It is set on a beautiful piece of land just outside Richmond. If you like Tudor architecture or like an interesting story of a houses many histories this is... More

I found this gem quite by accident but I definitely suggest seeking it out! Tours run daily on the hour or half hour. Beautiful gardens that you can explore without a guide. The house itself was shipped to Virginia from England, very impressive overall. The guide goes into detail both about the original home and how life would have been... More

What a fantastic story, a manor house moved in its entirety from the English countryside to the banks of the James River. The home is fantastic. I love the Tudor type architecture. The approach is grand, the house impressive and the interior is a step back in time. The woodwork inside is masterful and absolutely breathtaking. The tour is well... More

Since arriving in Richmond we have heard about the Tudor house that you “must visit” and I was very excited about our trip. Maybe I had such high expectations that it could have never lived up to it, but I can honestly say I was disappointed in our visit. We started in the gardens. The pictures we saw on the... More

Its just a few minutes drive from downtown and nestled in an upmarket residential area. The hall itself is not well sign posted as local residents probably don't welcome crowds of visitors but if you do get through the maize of roads it is well worth it. Relatively low priced admission and free guided tour - that was great and... More

This is a lovely and interesting house. I found the Anglomania of the original rebuilders of this place a little odd, but the setting is lovely, our guide was witty and very knowledgeable, and the rebuilders did save a 500 year old house from complete ruin. It's not a board for board reconstruction, but it does give the feel of... More
