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.

Disappointing


Valb56, Gateshead, United Kingdom
I was pleased to be a member of the National Trust and so did not have to pay the entry fee because although I could see that in the future the place will be lovely at the moment it is essentially a building site with nice gardens. There was little to see in the house, the gardens were nice but noisy - due to the building work and there were very few guides to help. Sorry to be negative but I was disappointed. In a few years time it will be well worth a visit.

Interesting

Being members of national trust we thought we would visit the hall. I appreciate that the trust looks after all types of buildings etc but there is basically nothing here. The building was damaged by fire 100 years ago and it has never been restored. There are virtually no complete rooms. No gardens to visit and the only complete area is the sparse visitors shop and the cafe. As members we don’t have to pay which was just as well

Definitely a work in progress


M T,
We didn't realise there were no furnished rooms. I had looked at the National Trust website but did not realise the extent of work needed. Once we got over the shock we enjoyed looking around. Gardens were lovely; café small and basic; loos in a portacabin. Luckily we both had National Trust membership; I don't think I'd have been happy to pay much.

Work in progress - but it’s going to be great!

We live near this hall and are members of NT - so a visit here is no great cost or journey for us. For years, the hall was a handsome ruin. Viewed from a distance but never visited. Now NT are gradually refurbishing various areas and it’s a worthy attraction. The family history is fascinating - as is the huge wealth that was required to build such a place. You need an interest in history and some imagination once inside the house as it is mostly still fairly bare. Outside there are some surprisingly nice gardens . You can see that once works are finished it will be a real gem. I admit though - that if you are paying full entry price, you might think it not in the same league as some other NT properties in the region.

Little information as undergoing works. Volunteers unhelpful and rude, they should be trained that a volunteer badge doesn't give them that right. All about power nothing about sharing information. Another property where the minute you sit down for a coffee someone creeps up and tries to sell you raffle tickets and looks disapprovingly at you when you say no!
