Seaton Delaval Hall

Local nameSeaton Delaval Hall
LocationEngland, UK

Seaton Delaval Hall is a Grade I listed country house in Northumberland, England. It is near the coast just north of Newcastle upon Tyne. Located between Seaton Sluice and Seaton Delaval, it was designed by Sir John Vanbrugh in 1718 for Admiral George Delaval; it is now owned by the National Trust.Seaton Delaval Hall in its entirety was recently closed to visitors on account of building work. It re-opened on Saturday 16 February 2019, from Thursdays to Sundays only. However, the west wing has been emptied of its furniture and paintings, and remains closed to visitors as it is being completely re-roofed.Since completion of the house in 1728, it has had an unfortunate history. Neither architect nor patron lived to see its completion; it then passed through a succession of heirs, being lived in only intermittently. Most damaging of all, in 1822 the central block was gutted by fire, and has remained an empty shell ever since.
