Today marks the date of International Women’s Day. Seaham Hall proudly celebrates the remarkable achievements of writer and mathematician Ada Lovelace, the daughter of Lord Byron and Annabella Milbanke who wed back in 1815 in our now Ada Lovelace Suite.
Ada Lovelace was prompted by her mother to study science and mathematics, which often weren’t studied by females at the time, and soon developed an interest for the subjects which dominated the majority of her adult life. Lovelace went on to befriend mathematician Charles Babbage and was inspired by his plans for inventions of analytical engines. Babbage then became her mentor, and Lovelace worked on multiple projects, accomplishing multiple achievements, and is now considered as the first computer programmer.
Our Ada Lovelace Suite is inspired by her soft, feminine elegance, and her achievements are reflected in the luxurious and glamorous interiors. A suite truly as enchanting as her story, featuring two slipper baths overlooking the grounds of Seaham Hall, you’ll without a doubt feel the magic that Ada Lovelace left behind for women around the world to be inspired by.
Experience a stay at Seaham Hall in the surroundings of our Ada Lovelace Suite, starting from £396, including breakfast and full use of the award-winning spa. For the finer details and to create a booking, please call our Reservations Team on 0191 516 1400.
