If you have any interest in English history and Shakespeare, do not miss Agecroft Hall. The setting is beautiful, the home is lovely and fascinating and the guide was extremely well informed. An historian, she was originally from Lancashire, just like Ashcroft Hall. Our visit was both educational and enjoyable.

My wife and I visit and tour old houses/mansions every chance we get. We found Agecroft Hall to be particularly interesting due to the fact that it was originally built in England, dismantled, transported across the ocean, and reassembled here. The history lesson that comes along with the tour is a bonus. If you have the time, be sure to visit the home.

This is worth the trip if you find transplanted English manor houses interesting. The house is so impressive, as are the gardens. We had one of the most thorough tours we can remember at Agecroft. It's like you're in a different world.

We were looking for what to do on a rainy day in this city and found online several museums and there was Agecroft; one amazing English tudor manor house that was totally taken down in England and moved to Richmond in 1925; It's enormous and beautiful and so full of history
from over 1,000 years ago when it was built in Lancashire.........the tour was a delightful Christmas tour which takes a different direction BUT I plan to return in Spring to see and walk the gorgeous outdoor gardens and walks; all over looks our JAMES River.......a MUST see in Richmond
