With so much to see and do, a trip to Belsay is one of the best value family days out in North East England. Explore the grand medieval castle, later extended to include a magnificent Jacobean mansion and don’t miss the stunning views from the top of the tower. Then it’s on to Belsay Hall, an architectural masterpiece inspired by the temples of ancient Greece, with its fabulous Pillar Hall.
Last but not least, there are the huge grounds, packed with an impressive array of shrubs and flowers. The unique Quarry Garden is a fantasy of ravines, pinnacles and exotic plants, No wonder Belsay Hall is one of the top visitor attractions in Northumberland.
