Seaton Delaval Hall is a great English Baroque villa designed by Sir John Vanbrugh – architect of Castle Howard and Blenheim Palace – for Admiral George Delaval, built between 1719 and 1732, with formal gardens and colourful borders.
It is much more than an architectural masterpiece. For 900 years, the estate has been a stage for drama, intrigue and romance while the surrounding landscape has fuelled industrial revolution.
Vistors can enjoy extensive walks through the landscape with many artistic features and fun for children along the way. There is a new cafe and play area too. The main hall is recently restored and is very interesting to see.

The Hall has survived terrible fires, military occupation and potential ruin. Now it provides an amazing space for arts, heritage and the community to come together.
