My husband and I were in Richmond for a family visit, and had less than two days to wander on our own. We came across this house through a brochure, and thought we would go check it out. It was worth the drive, if you love history, architecture, and antiques! The mansion is in a beautiful section of Richmond,and the... More

We had a very knowledgeable docent, but my husband felt she didn't spend enough time on the weaponry on display. There are some really beautiful period pieces that are just gorgeous, and she was very knowledgeable on the art work and other aspect of the home. The house is amazing, and it boggles the mind that they were able to... More

One of a kind in Richmond. This Tudor style home was actually brought over in pieces from England and reconstructed on rolling hills overlooking the James River. Guided tours of the house and the Elizabethan gardens Tuesday to Sunday

This is part of a Tudor and Stuart estate moved from England to Rihcmond by Thomas Williams, who hoped to develop his land into an English village. He didn't live to see this, but his wife sold the lots, and a very upscale neighborhood developed. The foundation purchased period furniture, and the tour emphasizes the Tudor - Stuart style. The...

Great site to visit to enjoy house museum, gardens and outdoor plays. Staff very welcoming and knowledgeable. Loved the carvings on the bedroom furniture. Amazing the window did not break on the trip over the pond. Must see!

A visit to Agecroft Hall in Richmond, Virginia, is fascinating on so many levels. First, this magnificent manor house originally was built in England, then later was disassembled, crated, moved and reconstructed in Virginia. Second, it once was owned by the Langleys, a powerful family for several centuries that had ties to the English throne and the Catholic Church. Agecroft... More

Our tour guide, Robin was one of the most friendly people you could ever meet. Her deep knowledge of the time period and her passion for history really shined. She was so patient with answering all of our questions and we were able to learn so much from her tour. The house was decorated beautifully with furnishings from the time... More

A unique place in Richmond with an interesting past. Inside are some awesome pieces of furniture and artwork. I don't recommend small children on the tour, they can't touch anything and seem to get antsy fast. During my tour, two different families had to escort their children back outside.

We were most fortunate to have a personal guided tour that lasted over an hour. (We arrived in the morning when there were few other visitors.) The Hall is a museum as much as it is a restored manor, transported from Lancashire in England. The furnishings, paintings, and other art works are remarkable. Our guide was knowledgeable and gracious. There... More
