Seaton Delaval Hall
Discover Seaton Delaval Hall, A place of great theatre and drama
Admiral Delaval commissioned Sir John Vanbrugh to build the hall in 1718. The house was the home of the Delaval family who were famous for the notoriously extravagant parties they threw in the Georgian period. The Hall was damaged by fire in 1822, but successive generations of the family, particularly the late Lord Hastings, undertook extensive repairs to ensure the Hall's survival.
