Take a trip to Belsay Hall, Castle & Gardens in Northumberland this autumn and enjoy one of the best value days out in north-east England.
You can spend hours exploring both inside and out on both fair and wet weather days. The Hall is an unfurnished architectural masterpiece inspired by the temples of ancient Greece, with its fabulous pillars. Explore the great room of the ruined medieval castle and don't miss the stunning views from the top of the tower.
Outside, there are the huge grounds. A grade I listed heritage garden, lovingly restored and packed with an impressive array of shrubs and flowers which change with the seasons. The high point of any visit to Belsay is the unique Quarry Garden, a fantasy of ravines, pinnacles and exotic plants. No wonder Belsay Hall is one of the most loved visitor attractions in Northumberland.
