A pleasant walk back in time.

It's a little hard to find but worth the trip. A castle like edifice with furnishings from 200 years ago, during the spring and summer months the gardens are in bloom.

This building was dismantled in England, (with the pieces numbered) and reassembled on a lovely site overlooking the James River. The house is very interesting alone, but the grounds are also beautiful. A fascinating glimpse into the past.

A 17th century home that was bought in England, then brought over and reconstructed here, impressive.

Wow, where do I start? This place is so unique and situated in one of Richmond's finest neighbourhoods, it's one of the most beautiful houses I've ever been in - but it also has a history! Our guide was so knowledgeable and passionate about medieval history, it was wonderful. He was engaging and was able to give me and my... More

The home was dismantled and transported to the US from England and reassembled in Richmond above the James River. It is an interesting mid evil home and also home to the Richmond Shakespeare Theatre in the Summer.

In order to aid in the preservation of this treasure, guests are limited to a certain number of rooms during the tour. The fact that it was brought over to Richmond from England in the 1900's is a feat in itself, and I am super glad someone saw fit to preserve this for later generations to visit. Most of the...

I didn't like the tour at all. The house is very dark and gloomy. I will never go there again. Waste of my time and energy.

Agecroft Hall was built near Manchester in the 15th century and then moved to Richmond in the 1920s. It became a museum later and has been lovingly restored and decorated since. The house tour is excellent. The staff is very knowledgable and clearly very proud of the Hall. The gardens surrounding the house are equally impressive. The house sits upon... More

A beautiful 15th century estate that was moved from England to Richmond, Virginia in the 1920's by T. C. Williams. Beautiful view of the James River from the grounds and fine "period" entertainment as we waited in line for a brief entertaining tour through 4 rooms of the estate. Will return for a guided tour at another time.
