Visiting Seaton Delaval Hall: What You Need to Know

In line with government guidelines, some indoor spaces at Seaton Delaval Hall are now open. Read on to help you keep safe and get the most from your visit.

Parking and when you arrive:

  • Please follow the one-way system in the car park.
  • If you are a member, please have your membership card ready for scanning at Visitor Welcome.

Staying Safe:

  • There are one-way systems in the Central Hall, parts of the Basement and the Brewhouse. You may be required to wait to enter these spaces to help maintain social distancing and manage visitor flow.
  • To help keep everyone safe, please follow social distancing and government guidance when you visit. Look out for the signs while you're here which will explain any changes to how you can access different parts of the site.
  • If you're showing any symptoms of coronavirus, or if you've been in contact with anyone that has the virus in the last 14 days, please don't visit.

Hand sanitising and face coverings:

You will find a hand sanitising station at the main entrance to use on entering the Hall. In line with government guidelines, we ask that all those aged 11 and over wear a face covering whilst inside any of our buildings, unless exempt from doing so.

Track and Trace

You will be asked to either scan the Track and Trace QR code or leave your details with a member of the team when entering the Central Hall and the Brewhouse Cafe. We are required to have a different QR code at the Hall to the one that is being used at the Brewhouse Cafe.
