Overview

Seaton Delaval Hall is a great house set in its own estate with lovely gardens and a fine collection; yet it is also much more. It is a signpost pointing to the diverse history of a family which acquired land here in the late 11th century.

The house occupies the site of a Norman settlement, and its original Norman chapel remains in use today. Built between 1719 and 1730 for Admiral George Delaval, it is not only the finest house in the north east of England, but also among the finest works of its architect, Sir John Vanbrugh, one of the masters of English Baroque.

For 900 years, the estate has been a stage for drama, intrigue and romance while the surrounding landscape has fuelled industrial revolution. The house has survived terrible fires, military occupation and potential ruin. Now it provides an amazing space for arts, heritage and the community to come together.

Very Infomative


Mudeford123, Christchurch, United Kingdom
The guides at this National Trust property could not have been more friendly and helpful. There are two parts to the visit, the ruined hall and the "newer" inhabited building. The stories are well told but if you are not sure about anything the guides are very knowledgeable. Well worth a visit

Work in progress by a National Trust


cstamm, Sydney, Australia
This property has a very impressive frontage in the English Baroque style when you drive up. What was the main building was burnt out in 1822 and was an empty shell for many years, but has recently undergone stabilization work and restoration of marble floors etc. The West Wing is furnished and has an amazing elliptical cantilever stone staircase and huge gloomy cellar that you can wander around. On the East side is a fabulous stable block dating from 1732, with names of the horses above every stone stall. The NT will be working for many more years on this Grade 1 listed building and it will be interesting to visit again in a year or two.

Ok but not enough for younger visitors


Carrie-Anne M,
Visited today with two 4-year-olds and a 1 year old, small 'park' area wasn't suitable for the little one so he became frustrated, craft activity was well staffed and equity but a little odd, making journey sticks; the boys didn't really understand it. Hall has been restored well compared to my last visit many years ago. Still not all rooms completed. Comparing to Wallington which we visited last week this was not as well equips for younger visitors.

Small but perfectly formed


berkstripper, Bracknell, United Kingdom
Lovely old hall in lovely grounds with an old norman church nearby Slightly unusual appearance with the hall being split into three parts The gardens are small but attractive and on the other side of the carpark there are extensive kitchen gardens to be seen. Also saw loads of rabbits and horses in the surrounding fields when there so plenty to draw the eye.
