The Hall

English Opulence, Room-by-Room


Visit Agecroft, and you'll walk into the lives of the landed gentry in England's Tudor and early Stuart periods.

Tour the Great Hall, and you'll imagine the feasts and merriment its richly-paneled walls have seen.

The Great Hall's leaded glass window was transported from England completely intact.

Enter the manor's Great Parlour, where family and guests retreated for comfort, privacy and 16th- and 17th-century diversions. Peruse the sleeping chambers, where residents not only rested, but also dressed and dined.

From its "dyninge parlour," up its intricately carved staircases and through its noble passageways, this manor home has 500 years of stories to tell.

Where the story of England's past is told in amazing detail.
