Although I've lived in Richmond for 30+ years, there are so many places I haven't seen. Some friends are in the same boat, so every month we go somewhere different in Richmond. This month was Agecroft Hall. Most of us had been there on our children's field trips, but nobody really remembered much. It was a beautiful day, and Steve... More

Agecroft Hall was built in Lancashire, England in the late 15th century. It was home of the Langley and Dauntesey families for centuries. After falling into disrepair, it was sold at auction in 1925 to Thomas C. Williams, Jr. of Richmond, Virginia. He had the house dismantled, crated and shipped to Richmond. It is now re-created near the James River... More

Although we visited Agecroft in the Winter it was definitely worth it. I would like to go back and visit when the gardens are in bloom - and perhaps we can get a different tour guide. The person we had giving our tour was OK but I don't feel she had as good a grasp of the history of the... More

We were not prepared for the historical significance of this - and since the information was presented from a "humanities" position - there was so much about how people lived and how superstitious they were - and our tour guide -Stephen was so knowledgeable about the period and the home. He gave a serious history lesson interspersed with current humor... More

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
