Seaton Delaval Hall


Located just south of Blyth, the imposing Seaton Delaval Hall was designed by Sir John Vanbrugh in 1718 for the Delaval family. The hall, now a Grade I listed building, took 10 years to complete and was almost destroyed by fire in 1822. The central part of the building has never been lived in since.

Today, the Hall is owned by the National Trust and the estate and gardens are open to the public. You can find out more about the Hall’s exciting heritage and the life and times of the Delaval family who were famed for their parties and pranks.
