Just visited Seaton Delaval Hall and I was very impressed with the work which is been done. It has been many years since I was last there and would recommend a visit if your are interested in the history of the local area. There have been many changes made in the buildings restoration and in the grounds. Just wish I... More

Very interesting place to have a look around. Good guides explain about the history etc. Good to see it in the hands of the national trust.

Fascinating historical site with beautiful gardens adjacent to the Hall and great coastal views. The main part of the Hall is in a state of major renovation which adds to the interest. The two wings contain stables and furnished rooms both of which give an insight into the near and distant past. When open the nearby church is also worth... More

We visited on a cool ish day hoping for information about the family and all their racous exploits only to find an an most ruin of a house. The main house has little or no information inside and the West Wing, that does have some of the family's belongings, is rather small and still has almost no info about who... More

We came to visit this place as we couldn't get parked in Tynemouth to visit the Priory. We ended up joining the National Trust as our English Heritage membership run's out this month and we'd run out of places to visit in the North of England. Apart from the shock of discovering most of the Hall is derelict and crumbling... More

This is a very impressive building although it clearly comprises two separate parts i.e. the portion that was damaged by fire in the 1820s, which is in need of massive restoration, and the portion that was unaffected by the fire and continued to be lived in until just a few years ago. The two halves actually give the visitor an... More

Lovely old place with loads of work needing to be done. Some interesting history attached to the property, which has very knowledgeable guides. People visiting should notice differences to this NT offering over time. For instance a new restaurant next year. Great place for a day out with children. Lovely gardens and natural play area.

A great couple of hours visit. There is great renovation work going on to get the once fantastic building back to how it was. You can see where they are going and it will be interesting following the progress. The views all around are stunning. The interior which is open to the public is worthy of a visit with some...

The actual hall is not the usual pristinely presented National Trust building, but one that is in transition. The 'main' part is undergoing much restoration work...after a fire many eons ago. The notes on the muses were interesting -to me anyway. The servants quarter, I think, was where the last occupiers took residence- their rooms etc can still be seen.... More
