Take CentreStage

Every Sunday in the Saloon between 2 - 4pm there's a performance. It could be by a choir, musicians, an orchestra or dancers, it really does vary. But everyone is always welcome, and encouraged to join in just as the Delavals would have.

Hear a Table Top Talk

Every day at 12pm until the end of September there will be a 15 minute talk from one of our lovely gardeners. It could be about the garden - both past and present, poetry, a demonstration or something completely different, simply ask a member of staff.

Spectacular shrubs in the gardens

Glorious gardens

The gardens at Seaton Delaval Hall are looking rather fabulous.

The flowers are showing off their colours and it's the ideal time of year for a slow walk around the estate to see exactly what's what.

If you'd like to know more about what the gardeners here need to do in order to keep the place looking top notch, you can. Step forward Chris Brock...

Chilli Fest

From Saturday 4 - Sunday 5 July we're welcoming back North East Chilli Fest. Here you can expect over 80 producers offering the tastiest & spiciest chilli products, real ale producers and entertainment.

Join a guided walk

Join a guide for a four mile walk around the Estate. You can learn all about the Delavals and how they made their fortune from salt, coal and glass. There's the opportunity to admire the views of the landscape and the Hall.

Cosy up in the cafe

The cafe is a little basic but it still has plenty to offer. You can enjoy a fresh brew, soup, cakes, scones, sandwiches or soft drinks. Then work it off in the special Woodland Play Area...
