Book your visit
You don't need to book your Easter trails, but you will need to book your Easter visit. To manage visitor numbers so that social distancing can be ensured for the safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors, the pre-booking system still applies.
Booking will provide access to the property, not the Easter adventures in nature trail, which can be purchased on the day.
Tickets are released every Friday so you won't be able to book your Easter visit until Friday 26 March. Book your visit here.
Joining us during the Easter break? Why not tick off some of our family-friendly activities, explore the newly-complete South East Gardens and have fun running around South Lawn.

Walking at Seaton Delaval Hall
Opt for the long version (5.75 miles) or a shortened one (4.5 miles) to venture around the wider estate of Seaton Delaval Hall taking in local points of interest along the way.
Enjoy a five mile self-guided walk, roughly three hours, around Holywell Dene and Old Hartley and experience the history of the local area, the Delaval family and Seaton Delaval Hall.
This walk around Seaton Delaval incorporates local points of interest via the Old Wagonway to the south - providing magnificent views - as well as historical facts about the Delavals.
Immerse yourself in history as you pass the site of the Hester Pit, where 204 men and boys were tragically killed in 1862, and head towards the coast before returning to Seaton Delaval Hall.
A moderate 6-mile walk around the land used for agriculture and mining by the Delaval family since the 11th century.
The Delaval family was granted land in south east Northumberland at the end of the 11th century. The family name changed in 1814 when the estate passed through the female line to Sir Jacob Astley. His son and heir became Lord Hastings. The estate was largely agricultural land but coal was mined here by 1291 up to 1960. This walk takes in reminders of both agricultural and coal industries, as well as wooded parkland.
The Delavals were no strangers to conflict and war, from the Norman Conquest to World War II. This walk delves into the history of those troublesome times.
