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

A hidden gem... one of only two English manor houses to be transplanted to the U.S. (the other one, Virginia House, is conveniently next door). Great tour with a knowledgeable and friendly guide, well-paced and extremely interesting. Lovely gardens and courtyards to spend some time in. Not at all crowded. Only drawback: no photos allowed inside.

Great old Tudor manor House that was brought over by Mr. Williams in the early 20th century. Mr. Williams bought all the land (Windsor Farms) around where currently Agecroft now sits and his plan was to develop an "English Village" with Agecroft being the center piece. You will notice that a lot of the streets do have English names. Interestingly... More

Agecroft Hall, pictured above as it once stood in Lancashire, England, had its beginnings in the late 15th century. For centuries, it was the home of the distinguished English Langley and Dauntesey families, during the tempestuous yet brilliant Tudor and Stuart ages, when England was taking its place among the major powers of Europe and the New World. Agecroft stood... More
