Seaton Delaval Hall is a great English Baroque villa designed by Sir John Vanbrugh for Admiral George Delaval and built between 1719 and 1732, with formal gardens and colourful borders.
Having survived fires, military occupation and potential ruin, it was saved by the National Trust in 2009 to provide a space for arts, heritage and the community to come together. Refurbishment is still ongoing, but there is a fine selection of furnished rooms in the west wing and a collection that includes portraits, ceramics and furniture.
