“Has Potential”

Seaton Delaval Hall
Ranked #3 of 18 things to do in Whitley Bay
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 16 April 2014

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 the West Wing which is worth a look and Lord Delaval still has rooms here. It's not huge and doesn't take long to look round but is well kept, though not disabled friendly as far as I could see.
The stables are interesting and there is a nice tearoom and easily accessible toilets.
In summer the gardens are small but pleasant.
Occasionally they have a "Northumberland day" when locals can get in free.
It is a bout a mile in from a nice coast with sand dunes and village, Seaton Sluice, with cafes, pubs and a small harbour.

Went for a day out - spent the morning here!
Not much to do, the website says there is an excellent wooden playpark for kids, it's basically a few logs to climb on and a couple of tunnels.
Gardens are pretty, once the construction work is finished it will probably be worth a visit.
We ended up driving to Souter lighthouse for an enjoyable end to the day!

We used to enjoy the mediaeval banquets here years ago I wish they would bring them back. The grey lady comes alive at midnight if you walk around her 3 times.....allegedly.

Overall very interesting work in progress, the real selling point was the very helpful staff. It clearly is a work in progress so the interior is a bit basic but worth seeing nevertheless.
