Belsay Hall, Castle and Gardens


An architectural masterpiece, influenced heavily by the temples of ancient Greece, the Grand Grecian Hall is a true spectacle. Explore the Middleton family bedrooms with incredible views over rest of the estate. Whilst the hall itself is unfurnished, beautiful floral print wallpaper from the 1800's still lines the walls. Using rocks hewn from the quarry on the Belsay grounds the hall was completed in 1817, with its incredible ionic columns, through which you can still wander today, being one of it's many splendid features.

After viewing the hall, take a stroll through the restored Grade I heritage gardens, exploring a vast range of shrubbery and flowers, with an atmosphere that changes with the seasons. Visiting the Quarry Garden is the highlight of many a visit, a real one of a kind feature within an already spectacular garden.

The hall and garden perfectly complement the impressive medieval castle which, from the top of the tower, offer spectacular views over the estate and surrounding countryside. Thankfully the hall's original kitchen is now home to the Belsay Hall Tearoom, the perfect place to rest after working up an appetite. With regular events and activities for the whole family, a trip to Belsay Hall, Castle and Garden is the perfect family day out.
