Notice: Over the next few weeks we're trialing a new arrival system at Wallington. This will enable us to engage with you all as you arrive at the property and scan your membership cards/allow you to buy your ticket while you're still in your car, so you can start enjoying your visit from the moment you step out of your car. Thank you for your patience while we test this new system.
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.
Election fever at Wallington
With 2015 being an election year, we’ll be bringing Wallington’s political past to the forefront of your experience this spring.
We're turning the clocks back to the 1929 election, when Wallington's owner, Sir Charles Philips Trevelyan, stood as the Newcastle Central Labour candidate for the second time.....
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 until June.
Look out for Lace Gone Wild
Discover an exhibition by lace-makers from across the North East showing a different side of lace. Take a stroll along Centenary Walk and you’ll find red squirrels and owls, flowers and fungi, butterflies and bats, snails and other creepy-crawlies nestled in the wood. They'll also be lace demonstrations in the Walled Garden during Voluntary Arts Week, 15 - 22 May, to mark this annual celebration of arts and crafts.
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.
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.
