I love going to Agecroft Hall during the summer to watch their Shakespeare plays and picnic. Before the play starts, my friends and I always bring a picnic basket and blankets with us and we sit behind Agecroft on the grass and take in the beautiful views of the James River. Almost always, there is a group of actors that... More

Suggest reading the book Agecroft Hall by Lisa Crutchfield before you visit, it's a short read and well worth it. The book will give you a greater appreciation and insight of the Hall.

You could easily spend half a day here, touring the house, touring the grounds, and learning about days gone by. Our tour guide was super informative and told little vignettes about life at the Estate and about life in those time, so I learned a lot. It is amazing that this house was part of a larger community design that... More

Agecroft is a really cool place to visit. In the summer, they host the Richmond Shakespeare Festival which is always a real treat. Awesome place for a picnic with a view and some history.

Such a beautiful house! To take apart and house, ship it across the pond and put it back together again is just amazing. You learn that and more when you tour Agecroft Hall. It is a lovely way to spend a few hours to take a tour of the home and gardens. If you are in RVA in the summer,... More

I wouldn't miss this. Even in the UK, I don't know of a Tudor great house that shows as much of Tudor life or is as lovely as this. They moved it a stone at a time from the UK, if I have the right place in mind, and it's amazing. One volunteer set out to put my beautiful but... More

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. (Be sure... More
