interested in history, wine tasting, thoroughbred horse racing, museums, or enjoying a few rounds of golf? There are plenty of attractions and activities to keep you on the go in Central Virginia and the surrounding areas. Gracefield Hall makes an excellent and convenient base for all your activities, whether they are local attractions or day trips.

New Kent County has six rural bicycle routes ranging from just over 13 miles to just over 77 miles. Each route starts and ends at the New Kent County Visitors and Commerce Center at I-64 Exit 211. There is no better way to enjoy the bucolic scenery in the area than by bicycle. Gracefield Hall is located less then ¾ mile from four of the routes. If you are staying at Gracefield Hall you can start and end your tour here and use the Visitors Center as an intermediate rest stop. Use our large covered back porch to keep your bicycle out of the weather. Gracefield Hall is a quick 12 miles from the Charles City Courthouse parking area on the Virginia Capital Trail, a new and beautiful bike and walking trail in Central Virginia:

We offer pickup and delivery service for a small fee from and to the Charles City Courthouse parking area, Culs Courthouse Grill, or Indian Fields Tavern for the Virginia Capital Trail or the New Kent Visitors Center for the six county trails for up to two riders and their bicycles.
