Magnificent estate where politics and play came together in the heart of Northumberland

Discover Wallington, much-loved home to generations of the unconventional Trevelyan family.

Visit the impressive, yet friendly house, and explore the history of Northumberland in the huge pre-Raphaelite paintings around the remarkable Central Hall.  Be inspired by the beautiful furniture, family paintings and treasured collections.

The Trevelyans loved being outdoors and close to nature and the house is surrounded by an informal landscape of lawns, lakes, woodland, parkland and farmland, just waiting to be explored.

There is even a beautiful walled garden hidden in the woods, a colourful haven of tranquillity in all seasons.

The garden and estate at Wallington are open every day.  Crunch through the leaves in the woods or discover the frosted walled garden before warming up in the colourful Edwardian conservatory. Don't forget to keep your eyes peeled for our elusive red squirrels while you're here.
