If you like history or beautiful old homes, this is a great place to spend an hour or two. The tour guide was very informative and since it was just my husband and I on the tour, she let us ask as many questions as we wanted and was more than happy to answer. I must saw I was very... More

I visited last weekend after receiving a recommendation and am so glad I went. The grounds are beautiful and the estate is worth the tour. Our tour guide had lots of small facts that I hadn't known about before. The grounds preserves the English feel of the estate's original location and is a great place to meander around on a... More

If you have any interest in English history and Shakespeare, do not miss Agecroft Hall. The setting is beautiful, the home is lovely and fascinating and the guide was extremely well informed. An historian, she was originally from Lancashire, just like Ashcroft Hall. Our visit was both educational and enjoyable.

My wife and I visit and tour old houses/mansions every chance we get. We found Agecroft Hall to be particularly interesting due to the fact that it was originally built in England, dismantled, transported across the ocean, and reassembled here. The history lesson that comes along with the tour is a bonus. If you have the time, be sure to... More

This is worth the trip if you find transplanted English manor houses interesting. The house is so impressive, as are the gardens. We had one of the most thorough tours we can remember at Agecroft. It's like you're in a different world.

We were looking for what to do on a rainy day in this city and found online several museums and there was Agecroft; one amazing English tudor manor house that was totally taken down in England and moved to Richmond in 1925; It's enormous and beautiful and so full of history from over 1,000 years ago when it was built...

This 18th century residence is something that needs to be seen. I have been here twice and both times I have learned something new. The movie and tour guides are very informative. The gardens are beautiful. The interior amazing for the time it was constructed and the history of how it landed in Richmond is jaw dropping. It makes for... More

Agecroft is a delightful place to visit for a few hours. Overall the tour is good. Please note this is not a self-guided museum tour. The Agecroft staff members are extremely particular about touching. Therefore, if you need to learn through picking up and exploring this isn't the place for you. The guides are full of facts about the relics... More

Agecroft Hall was an English Tudor Manor that was dismantled, shipped and reconstructed in the US. It's a little slice of England, right here in Virginia!!! The tour guides are super knowledgeable. The state of the house is amazing and lord would I love to get my hands on some of the artifacts in there!!! It's a beautiful place. It's... More
