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.

With 2015 being an election year, we’ve brought Wallington’s political past to the forefront of your experience in the house this season.

We've turned 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.....
