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

this is one of the finest mansion houses in the north east which has not been owned by the National Trust for very long but they are carrying our improvements all the time. Well worth a visit

All NT cafes are acceptable. This one is small and limited in its range of food, but we had a good sandwich and a tasty panini. The service is efficient and friendly. It was full on a sunny but cold October day; could be a bit crowded in summer.
