Seaham Hall


Seaham hallSeaham Hall was a large country house built 1791-1792 for Sir Ralph and Lady Judith Milbanke. The poet Lord Byron first visited Seaham Hall in 1814 and married Annabella Milbanke there in 1815. In 1821 the Milbanke's sold the Seaham Hall estate to Charles Vane (later to become the 3rd Marquis of Londonderry) who had married wealthy heiress, Lady Frances Ann Vane-Tempest, in 1819.[1] Using this inherited wealth, the estate was purchased with a view to developing the surrounding coalfields, which had a major influence in the growth of Seaham. There were major additions to Seaham Hall in 1861 by Lewis Vulliamy for Frances, Lady Londonderry.[2] During the First Word War the Hall served as a military hospital, with 112 beds. Today Seaham Hall is a hotel and spa set amongst 37 acres of landscaped gardens.
