There are several centuries of history at Belsay. There is the original 14th-century castle, with traces of original wall painting in the great hall. But the main architectural attraction is the early 19th-century hall, built on neo-classical lines to resemble a Greek temple, complete with plinths, columns, and scrolls. The beautiful honey colored stone, which seems to burn with its own light if seen at sunset, was dug from Belsay's own quarry. And indeed the now disused quarry is probably the most striking of the many landscaped gardens in the 12 hectares (30 acres) of grounds. Many rare plant specimens can be found here. The grounds play host to a number of regular and one-off events, such as car and motor cycle shows, and a medieval tournament. Partial wheelchair access is available.
