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.

we wanted to see the house for a regular tour but inadvertently came on the open house weekend with mobs of people and costumed events. I think all the kids enjoyed it but definitely the wrong time to try to see the house. Lovely setting. Very dark inside.

My wife had a wonderful time at today's event. The wait was made enjoyable with the music and entertainment. It was nice touch to have interpreters during the tour. The library set in WWII was very touching. Great for kids.

The movie was great and really interesting. The tour, well we got a not very good guide that kept repeating herself and asking if she had told us something. I felt like she left a lot out and was kind of in a hurry. We asked several questions and she only knew about half the answers. You only get to... More
