It's time to tell the full story

Seaton Delaval Hall was once famed for its lavish costume balls and spectacular theatrical productions – and for the elaborate practical jokes played on guests by the Delaval family. With your support, we can undertake urgent repairs to make the building safe, then bring visitors closer to the spirit of Seaton Delaval Hall with help from artists, actors and the local community.

How the appeal adds up

  • We received 19,826 donations to help acquire Seaton Delaval Hall in 2010
  • We need £7.8 million to restore the hall and surrounding buildings at risk
  • The project will allow us to usher in 120,000 visitors to Seaton Delaval Hall every year

Why give to the National Trust

As a charity, we rely on the generosity of supporters to look after the historic buildings in our care. Not only do our supporters help to conserve beautiful homes and stunning gardens. They also ensure that future generations have places where they can be inspired by stories of the past, enjoy peace and time to reflect, and make memories to treasure. Your donation will go towards this project and other vital conservation work on our buildings at this special place. With your support, we can continue to protect the irreplaceable. For everyone, for ever.
