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.
Christmas is coming...
Admire the twinkly lights and beautiful decorations as you soak up the special Christmas atmosphere at Wallington during weekends in December, from 10.30am - 3.30pm. Families can make festive things, enjoy stories with Mrs Santa and follow our special trail too.
A warm welcome every day
The garden and estate at Wallington are open every day. Crunch through the leaves in the woods or discover the frosted walled garden and relax in the colourful Edwardian conservatory. Our cosy cafe is open every day too (except Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day) so you can warm up with a hot drink or tasty snack next to the wood-burning stove afterwards.
Don't miss our Christmas shop
Make sure you pop into our special Christmas shop when you visit Wallington - it's full of decorations, cards, calendars, festive food and gift ideas for all the family. You can also buy all the usual goodies from our main shop next door, including many local items, books, toys, CDs, DVDs, confectionery, bags, scarves, jewellery, toiletries and homeware.
You might notice there's lots of work going on in the East Wood over the next few months as we start work on developing a new winter trail.This exciting new 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.
