Gorgeous Elizabethan garden, perfect view of the James River, this Tudor mansion, purchased by Mr. and Mrs. TC Williams in the early 20th century, dismantled and shipped to Richmond from England for reassembly overlooking the River - this is the place to visit for a step back in time. Don't miss Shakespeare Under the Stars each summer - wonderful venue... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 1.5 hour tour of the mansion! Expect to stay longer when the gardens are in bloom. The tour starts with a well done short film, followed by the tour. Our tour guide Steve was excellent; he was very knowledgeable, personable and was able to answer all of our many questions. It is a stunning collection of... More

This is a beautiful place to visit. The house and grounds are worth the small entry fee. Even though we went in the winter it was still beautiful. Check out their website for events in the garden.

It is surprising and stunning to visit Agecroft Hall. From its beginnings to its journey across the ocean to its spendor where it stands today, the manor is a testament to those who have the vision of the meaningful -- and the means to make it a reality. Stephen was our tour guide, and his exceptional knowledge, his obvious love... More

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!
