Overview

Important notice -

Please note that Seaton Delaval Hall is currently closed while our Heritage Lottery Fund-supported project gets underway. The hall will reopen on Saturday 16 February 2019.

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.

Noce couple of hours

We are national trust members so we don't pay entry fees. We spent a couple of hours here it's nice but the younger kids got a bit bored.. I would say this is more aimed at adults. Was beautiful and would be nice to see again... Maybe without the kids 🤔

Return visit here


bdon257, Morpeth, United Kingdom
We visited again this time with our granddaughter and we had another great visit. The volunteers are friendly, knowledgeable and keen to help. The ongoing restoration work is interesting to see and a huge multi million project is ongoing. The gardens boasts community plots which are full of fruit, vegetables and flowers. The hall itself is a magnificent shell with only the wings unscathed by the fire which destroyed the centre. The formal gardens are looking very good at present with mature trees shrubs and enclosed floral beds. The Norman church of Our Lady is accessed through the gardens. We will certainly return in future to see the changes from the restoration process.

Great place, great staff, great visit


Phil7631, Shotley Bridge, United Kingdom
Having just bought a NT membership my wife and I have been to a couple of properties over the last few weeks, including Wallington and Cragside. I have to say that I probably enjoyed this more SDH more than either of those. The staff were great and seemed to take great pleasure in explain the history of the Hall and the Delaval family. Give it a go, you won't be disappointed
