Unfortunately the Crag Wood walk is closed. Our Grecian Hall, Castle and Quarry Gardens will be open during the weekends.

Take a trip to Belsay Hall, Castle and Gardens in Northumberland and enjoy one of the best value days out in north-east England.

You can spend hours exploring both inside and out on 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 extensive grounds. A Grade I Registered 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.
