This is a great day or afternoon out for all the family. it is surprising large, with extensive gardens, which are beautiful. There isn't a great amount of walking, so therefore great for a young family. There is also plenty of picnic space, and we could have happily taken a picnic and spent the whole day there!

This was our first visit to Seaton Delaval Hall and we found the staff helpful and informative about the past goings. Beautiful gardens.

Tremendous atmosphere, interesting history. A lot to explore. Apart from the ruined part, there's the more recent parts, left as they were when last used.

Not a large NT property, but interesting all the same. Loved the older original part of the house (ruin, but romantic) and the converted servants quarters was interesting. Always more intersted in the gardens and i found these to be beautiful. Fantastic as dogs are allowed in the grounds and plenty of bowls dotted around the place. Only negative is... More

Well it's not all a ruin, but enough of it has been left in a rough state for you to explore on your own and discover the chequered past of this wonderful place! Seaton Delaval Hall has moved from fortune to misfortune many times through the centuries It still bears the scars of the fierce fires which almost condemned it... More

The hall itself is imposing against the backdrop of the north east landscape but nothing to write home about in the inside as renovations are still ongoing. However they have recently opened the west... More
