Discover Wallington, much-loved home to generations of the unconventional Trevelyan family.
Gifted to you by Sir Charles Philips Trevelyan, Socialist MP and ‘illogical Englishman’, our 13,000-acre estate has something for everyone.
Visit the impressive home of Sir Charles and discover more about this remarkable man and his unconventional family. You can explore the history of Northumberland in huge pre-Raphaelite paintings around the Central Hall or take time to discover the beautiful furniture, treasured collections and quirky curiosities in each room.
The Trevelyans loved being outdoors and close to nature. The house is surrounded by an informal landscape of lawns, lakes, woodland, parkland and farmland, just waiting to be explored.
Don't miss the hidden walled garden, nestled in the woods. It was beloved by Lady Mary Trevelyan and remains a beautiful haven whatever the season. Enter through Neptune's Gate, sweep down the stone staircase, by the Mary Pool and soak up the tranquil atmosphere. Wander past colourful borders and enjoy the scent of the flowers in the Edwardian conservatory.
Enjoy wild play in the West Wood with our three play areas, visit our family-friendly wildlife hide and look out for red squirrels, stroll by the river or refresh your mind among the flowers. Further afield, there are new walks across to Broomhouse Farm and beyond.
Wallington offers a relaxing day out, whether it's exploring the house and grounds, watching the world go by in the grassy courtyard, letting off steam with your family or simply walking your dog.
Discover Wallington's snowdrops
The garden and estate at Wallington are open every day, so you can venture out on a crisp winter's day to explore our frosty landscape and discover winter wildlife. And if you time it right, you’ll be able to enjoy the beautiful displays of snowdrops that are appearing in the garden and woodland at Wallington too, including the 100,000 snowdrops recently planted in the East Wood.
Take a peek inside the West Wing
For the very first time, we’ll be inviting you to venture into the west wing of the house this spring and help us shape its future. We’re starting a project to open this new space to visitors and we’d like you to help us decide how the rooms should be used. Look out for opportunities to join a guided tour, see the options and cast your vote - coming soon.
What's cooking in the kitchen?
Imagine visiting Wallington to be greeted by the smell of cooking as you step through the door. Our costumed interpreters will be cooking tasty 1930s recipes on the recently installed Aga in our cosy kitchen, most Wednesdays and Friday from 12 - 3pm. Pop in to see them and find out what's on the menu or just warm up next to the stove.
More Tales from Northumberland
ITV's Tales from Northumberland is back on our screens this spring. In this series Robson Green discovers more fascinating stories about the county and on his travels, we were lucky enough to show Robson around Wallington and tell him the story of our 13,500 acre family estate, which was gifted to the nation by Sir Charles Philips Trevelyan in 1941. Look out for episode 8, when we should be on.
You might notice there's lots of activity in the East Wood this year, as we continue work on developing a new winter trail.This exciting project will see us planting trees, shrubs and plants through the woodland and into the walled garden to add colour and interest during the winter months and create another reason to visit Wallington all year round.
There is so much to see and do at Wallington, so whether you're visiting for the whole day or just an hour, you'll find the perfect way to spend your time. If you need inspiration, our handy leaflet will help.
