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!

An English Elizabethan house, dismantled in the 1920's, shipped to Richmond VA and used to create a mostly authentic Tudor home. Donated and turned into a museum with period furnishings after the owners died. Our tour guide was excellent -- friendly and very knowledgeable. Both the house and grounds are worth seeing. It was very warm the day we visited,... More

Due to our location in the residential neighborhood of Windsor Farms, we are "not easy to find" compared to many other Richmond museums and attractions. We are so glad you... More

Each summer Agecroft hosts Shakespeare in an outdoor venue surrounded by a stately home of the Shakespearean age. The grounds are gorgeous and live theater in the courtyard takes you back in time. Much Ado was great and Hamlet is on tap for July. Make a date and go!

In the 1920's, some mega rich people dismantled an Elizabethan era manor house in Lancashire and shipped most of it to Virginia just outside Richmond. It is set in extensive parkland with mature trees and 4 period style gardens. They used modern furniture, but after they passed the house on, period furniture was purchased in England to complete the experience.... More

Nice tour of an old Tudor home. This home was brought over from England in pieces and put back together in Richmond! The tour provided interesting facts about the builder and occupants of the house. Great way to pass an hour or so.
