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

The antique collection inside the house is truly Amazing. For that alone it is worth your time. The house takes you back to the days of old in England. Grounds are nice as well.

We visited Agecroft close to closing time and ended up getting a personal tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. We loved seeing the seal of Elizabeth the First. The gardens were beautiful. We will visit again!

If you were rich enough, would you buy a 16th century mansion and moved it, brick by brick, to Richmond, Virginia? Well, somebody did. Agecroft Hall was actually built in Lancashire, England and was sold in 1925 to the Williams family, tobacco barons, in Richmond, Virginia. The family had the house disassembled, shipped, and reassembled on the James River, complete... More

With a lot of Richmond history attached. Beautiful grounds with plays in the evening later on in the summer I am told. House was brought over from England stone by stone with many nicely restored antiques. Dosents are excellent. All together a very nice afternoon.

Mother's Day tea and tour at Agecroft was very enjoyable. The food was catered by Libby Market. The tour included a copy of the 17th century kitchen and furnishings of the period. The starting film and tour guide were very interesting. Strange idea but if you had the money to spend a great hobby. The views of the James are... More

Agecroft Hall is a wonderful Tudor mansion from 15th century England now existing in Richmond. The building is quite amazing, the guided tour was exceptional. We learned the origin of so many expressions and terms, for instance "butler", and "sleep tight". There is plenty to see and it is covered at a nice pace. Only the main floor is handicap... More

Not much here to see nothing to do other than looking through the large homes in the area. The Virginia house is next door so you can get two for one if that excites you.
