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

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.

I can't think of any other place where you will find an authentic English Tudor home without having to be in England. The house is a wonderful reflection of English Renaissance, set on the banks of the James River.

We visited the Tudor era house while we were in Richmond. It was an unexpected treat. Our tour guide was informative and the collection was great

Thank you for your kind review. Agecroft Hall is tucked away in the residential neighborhood of Windsor Farms, but not far from Carytown. We are glad you found us and you had a great tour experience. Best, Manager of Tour Services More

Beautiful gardens and views. They have theatre (mainly Shakespearean) in the summer. It's great fun to bring a picnic and enjoy the small outdooor theatre. Great off the beaten track experience.

Agecroft Hall is a magnificent 20-room English Tudor mansion that was built in Lancashire, England over the 15th, 16th, and 17th centuries according to the needs and desires of the Langley and Dauntesey families. Near the end of the 19th century during the Industrial Revolution, it fell into disrepair. Due to coal mining activity nearby and railroad tracks running through... More

This is a real find overlooking the James River in the WIndsor Farms district of Richmond. A 16th century English manor house transported brick by brick to Richmond. I love it here and learned even more about it on the tour. A Richmond must-do!
