Summer at Seaham

Simply pick your events, buy tickets online and start preparing for what’s set to be an unforgettable summer at Seaham Hall.


Tradition with a twist

Tea on the Terrace

Join us under our heated pergola for al fresco feasting and plenty of fizz. We'll be serving up our popular afternoon tea out on our gorgeous terrace, so you can soak up the views, satisfy your sweet tooth and make most of summer Sunday afternoons. Tuck into a selection of bite size sandwiches, pastries, scones and cakes, washed down with free flowing tea and coffee, plus a glass of something fizzy. Live music, cosy blankets, fun themes and stunning surroundings will set the mood.

Bubbles, stargazing and incredible food - the ultimate summer evening, whether you're looking for a date night with a difference or a more luxurious dining experience with friends.

Tickets: £30 per person (includes a posh dog, popcorn and a glass of fizz). Drinks packages available.

The Big Green Egg

Private Barbecue Pods

Nothing says summer like a good old barbecue. Swap the garden for the Seaham Hall grounds and let us handle the cooking while you enjoy a selection of freshly grilled meats, crisp salads and indulgent desserts, washed down with a glass of Taittinger champagne. You'll get your own private pod complete with cosy blankets if you need them, but feel free to step outside and enjoy the summer sun while one of our chefs cooks up a storm on the Big Green Egg.

Available all day, every day

Picnics in the grounds

Our afternoon tea menu is also available as a picnic, complete with cosy blanket to sit on. Pick a spot by terrace, next to our wildflower meadows, or on one of the lawns  and tuck into our summer-inspired selections of sweet and savoury treats.
