This is an amazing opportunity to see a Tudor mansion relocated from Great Britain, and only a portion of the mansion was moved! Our tour guide was very informative on the historic aspects of the "house" and the timeframe of its heyday; it was a very interesting narrative throughout the tour of the house. Along with neighboring Virginia House, it's... More

We went to see a Shakespeare show that was by far one of the best shows we had seen in a while. Great acting, and the seating was outside so it was quite different from an in house theater. We really enjoyed our visit here.

This is a fascinating museum in a rather high-end neighborhood off the Carytown area of Richmond; elements of the house were shipped over in the Twenties from an English Tudor house going back to Henry VII's reign. In the late 1960's it became a museum with a lot of it showing you the ways people lived in the Elizabethan era.... More

We always love to visit homes with lots of history. The Agecroft Hall is beautiful with furnished rooms. It shows how it looked long ago. The grounds and garden are lovely. So much history to learn about. Definitely worth a visit.

This is an English home that was dismantled and moved to Richmond piece by piece. It's gorgeous, and hosts a lot of good entertainment!

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.
