We visited as a family of five for a day here never having been before. To be fair, I was not very impressed. The site is underdeveloped and a definite work in progress. The house as it was is a building site, the building is covered in scaffold, and the grounds outside are not overly extensive. The teashop facility's are... More

Restoration is still taking place, but this in itself is quite interesting. For example, the tour guide explained how the statues underwent x-ray in order to be preserved after the fire. The east wing was more interesting and the staff were very knowledgeable. One of the younger male guides in the dining room kept us very entertained by challenging us... More

I was really disappointed. The place is a building site at the moment. The west wing was closed, so we couldn't view that. We did get a guided tour of the east wing which was very interesting. If it wasn't for the tour the visit would have lasted about half an hour. There's defiantly room for improvement.

I always try and look for positives when I am compiling my reviews but Seaton Delaval Hall challenged me. The attraction is a bit of a building site with major restoration being undertaken in the main hall. The West Wing (bears no relationship to the TV series) is open to the public but is a collection of artifacts cobbled together... More

Everything about it was lovely, old church with plenty of history and beautiful grounds. Nothing to dislike.

Felt totally spoilt by the attention given by the guides in the rooms - they were passionate and knowledgeable about this fascinating place. As a member of the National Trust for over 30 years I have never been given an experience like this - captivating! Other houses / places should take good note! The humorous history side will always win... More

Up and coming. Great for a short visit but not a vast amount there or to do as yet. Not great if wet weather.

Looks fantastic from the outside normally but the central building is covered with scaffolding at the moment and, as has been the case for many years, the inside is just a brick shell with not too much to see but may give an idea of what it was like in its heyday. The current main area to look at is... More
