I came to Agecroft Hall with friends to tour the gardens and see the house. The grounds are very nice - a series of areas connected to the house including two tree-lined walks, a sunken garden, terraced herb gardens, and a turf maze. The house is situated in a residential neighborhood on the crest of a little hill that leads... More

Interesting history: this 17th century house was disassembled, shipped to Richmond, and reassembled. Tours are intimate and informative, and quite reasonable at about $8 a person. Unpretentious and informal.

If you enjoy touring historical homes you will enjoy a visit to Agecroft Hall. Lots of historical facts and artifacts from this house's 500 years of history. The gardens are just stunning too!

First the positive, this is an interesting Richmond landmark. It combines the vision of a wealthy American with a piece of English history transplanted in Virginia. The introductory video and subsequent house tour consumes approximately an hour and start hourly (ending at 3 pm as the house closes at 4pm). The grounds are open for strolling and picnicking.

Having been to Agecroft Hall on several occasions I can certainly recommend the visit. I especially enjoyed the outdoor performances by the Richmond Shakespeare Company before the moved to the Quill Theater. Beautiful home brought over from England, nice grounds for a picnic and educational presentations. Recommended.

What a find especially as we come from the UK and not a million miles from where this house originally stood. A really friendly welcome by the staff, the tour was very good, full to bursting with information and a really interesting house and past occupiers. The garden was a little disappointing, not sure whether they have volunteers who look... More

What a wonderful surprise to stop and visit Agecroft Manor, a Tudor home built in England in 1435 an transported here by boat and reassembled in the 1920''s by a wealthy Richmond Business man. Talk about being transported... this lovely home and 4 English gardens transports you to another time and place. It is the home of the local Shakespeare... More

Step 1: Get Melissa Malone as a tour guide. She lives, breathes, sleeps, and eats history. She knows this place, and the context, inside and out. Step 2: Get there early, reserve a tour time slot, then head out to self-tour the gardens. Step 3: Take your Melissa-led tour and get ready to be floored! This story, place, and tour... More

Beautiful buildings and grounds and the perfect setting for outdoor performances of Shakespeare. Saw "Twelfth Night" this weekend and it was absolutely delightful. Wonderful acting and all around a fantastic experience.
