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

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
