From the outside this looks like many of the National Trust buildings, a large country house. But when you enter you quickly realise that it is just a shell with a view damaged statues as the result of a devastating 19th century fire. You can...More

We've visited three times now, the last being at Christmas. Note over the winter time the west wing is closed off just for the Santa's grotto but also to clean and restore the rooms and items within. The rest of the hall is open though....More

Another lovely national trust. Beautiful house well preserved to say it had a fire. The furnished west wing is interesting to walk around. The woodland gives an enjoyable walk, and the climbing area and carved sheep are extra fun for children. The best part for...More

A very interesting house indeed. I will not spoil the tales of the Delaval Family, but I implore you to learn for yourself as you pass through the house and wonderful gardens. Try to visit at the weekend as the Ancient Norman Church is likely...More

Wonderful place to visit, include the church even though not part of the hall. Staff very informative, friendly. Small cafe, don’t miss it, the staff are Fanastic.

a great place to visit, it has an interesting history which is told well by the staff. The gardens are beautiful too and offers a nice walk. The only negative is the poor choice to eat, take a picnic for the perfect day.

A really good day out with helpful, approachable guides and members of staff. Standing on land originally gifted to the Delavals by William the Conqueror in 1080, the Hall was completed in 1728 but a fire in 1822 started in the SE wing and spread...More

As members of the NT we stopped on our way south. Enjoyed light refreshments then took a walk around the house and ruined building. Although it was a sad story about the fire and the damage it caused, the positive side is that one could...More

Seaton Delaval Hall is a lovely place to visit. The gardens are beautiful and the buildings were very interesting. The only thing that ruined our experience was the hard sell of membership to the national trust before we’d even stepped through the door.
