Agecroft Hall is a step back in time. The tour includes a short film and informative guide. Grounds/gardens are gorgeous. We visited on a rainy day. I can only imagine how much more beautiful it is on a clear day.

We visited Agecroft Hall because we enjoy history. The home has a remarkable history and story behind it. The tour was very informative and the house was absolutely gorgeous. The home gives a sense of life in the 16th century. The collection of period artifacts was astounding. My wife and I concluded our visit by walking the grounds which were... More

This is a spectacular place and unbelievable story about it's origin. It's just like a script for the fairy tale or movie! Must be visited.

Very entertaining tour guide, he was self taught and loved history of the era. Which of course gave you a better feel for the times in which Agecroft was built. The craftsmanship was awesome on all pieces displayed in the Hall. It is not the first transferred home I have seen and this one really does stand out as best... More

This is a rare opportunity to take a peek at some English history from the late 15th century right here on US soil. The tour of the house is filled with interesting facts about a time far removed from our own. Makes you feel lucky to live in the modern age, that's for sure! Tour starts with a short movie... More

Such a great tour of a Tudor home filled with rare furnishings of the period. All the pieces were amazing, I was especially impressed with the collection of instruments from the 16th century as well as the craftsmanship of the massive wooden beds. That these things have withstood the test of time is truly remarkable. Our tour guide was very... More

Lovely home and gardens. The plant lovers could easily spend half a day enjoying the gardens though they could use more attention then they seem to be getting. The house is a step back in time with beautiful carved wood, period furnishing and knowledgeable tour guides. Well worth the trip out of the way.

Excellent performance of Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream with the Hensley Park Theater Cast in an Elizabethan environment with gorgeous gardens. Many brought picnic dinners and ate on the grounds. No bad seat, an intimate setting.

Wow! This place is incredible! We have lived in richmond many years. It finally took my daughter and son in law to take us to this amazing mansion and grounds. What a grand, picture perfect view. The mansion is a sight to behold, full of history. Imported from its original location in England. A short film provided a great intro.... More
