Home of the outrageous sions of the Astley family, this was a party house that makes 21st century fun look tame. An exceptionally warm welcome from volunteers and staff made my visit memorable.

A lovely place to visit close to home. We have enjoyed visits at Christmas before but this was the first time we visited and took in all the history.

An interesting place full of history but is undergoing lots of work which we were not told about when we paid. Maybe we’ll try again when the work is finished.

This is a very impressive building which is undergoing major works after being neglected following a fire. It's a really interesting place to look round even in its current state. The guides were friendly, very knowledgeable and seemed proud to be associated with the Hall.

We had not been able to visit Seaton Delaval Hall before and took the opportunity after a visit to Tynemouth to call in. This was spectacular location which was largely destroyed by fire, forcing the owners to live in an annex which probably housed kitchens...More

A very surprising and pleasant experience. Visited many national trust properties as members and this is well worth a visit. Not to be missed. Stepping into the house leaves you surprised with what you do and don't see.

I would say the same. Alternatively there maybe a number you can ring if you go onto their eb page. I've recently watched The Landmark trust programme and think it should be restored.
