A visit here is like visiting several attractions; there is the castle, there is the hall and there are several types of garden including a very atmospheric quarry garden.

My husband and I visit here regularly. This is an absolutely lovely place and it never feels too crowded even on busy days. The plants are lovely and there are lots of different types to see, something interesting every time you go.

Great fun to explore with little ones, good, scary tour to the top of the tower and plenty of place to play hide & seek. Part of the Belsay Estate you can easily combine it with a whole day out at the Hall & grounds. Worth being an English Heritage member though. We did the Hallow e'en crafts & ghost hunting & grave robbing, fab, if a bit scary!!

This castle is maintained by English Heritage along with Belsay Hall, the walk to the castle from the Hall through the gardens , especially in the late spring is most enjoyable, frequently EH have external displays along the walks

Run by English Heritage, access to Hall, gardens and castle. Visited at October half-term when there was activities on for the children. Extensive gardens, both formal and more natural. The Hall is empty of all furniture, so don't go if you want to look round and see 'how it used to be'.
The tea rooms, are expensive (£5.40 for a toasted sandwich with a little bit of green stuff!) so would suggest taking a picnic if the weather is going to be OK, or eat it in the car!
