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.

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
