Belsay Hall, Castle and Gardens is like a great big adventure playground.

Bring along the kids to explore a fine medieval castle, a Greek Revival villa and acres of gardens perfect for a game of hide and seek, plus marvel at the views from the massive 14th century tower at the top of the ruined medieval castle.

The Magical Quarry gardens lead the way for your little princesses and princes to discover the castle, which has some very interesting stories to tell. Climb right to the top for spectacular views, if you are brave enough!

The Hall itself is a Classical Greek Revival villa, has many rooms to explore and more great stories to discover.

Belsay's Victorian tea room, situated in the old kitchen is the perfect mid-visit stop off, or take advantage of the picnic area to really make a day of it.

There are also seasonal events held here and there throughout the year, including a spooky Halloween Special Event, so it's worth using the link to keep an eye on what's coming up, especially during the school holidays!
