  Pictures of Seaton Delaval Hall
This house with its beautiful baroque work and wonderful ionic columns is the work of a man who was both inventive playwright and dramatist, who finally became one of the noted architects of his day.
The house was built for Admiral, Sir George Delaval between 1718 and 1728, it is considered to be one of the greatest pieces of early 18th-century architecture in England, it has a centre block between two pediment wings.
The magnificent approach to Seaton Delaval is typical of John Vanbrugh's dramatic flair, it perfectly compliments the gardens, pond and fountain laid out in more gentle fashion during the twentieth century by James Russell.
