Wallington's shops

On one side of the clocktower you'll find our main gift shop, stocked with a wide range of quality products, including many locally produced items, cards, books, toys, confectionary, home accessories, bags, scarves, jewellery, toiletries and gift ideas.  The second of Wallington's shops is situated on the other side of the clocktower and is full of seasonal items to inspire you including many garden and nature related products.   

In England, wearing a face covering is a personal choice, although they are recommended in crowded and enclosed places. 

Shop local

We believe it's important to support local businesses and in our main shop we sell a selection of hand picked products.  Read more about some of the local suppliers we're working with.

Connell & Hart

Diane Hart and Paul Connell live and work in Northumberland. Making jewellery since 1989 they use a method based on the Pâté de Verre technique involving arranging grains of coloured and clear glass in hand carved moulds and fusing them in a kiln.

The Pure Candle Co.

The Pure Candle Company craft hand-poured 100% soy wax candles in their Northumberland studio, using soy wax and fragrances sourced and created in the UK. The candle fragrances are inspired by nature to calm, soothe and delight your senses and are environmentally friendly in every way.

They use 100% soy wax which is ethically produced from sustainable sources. The candles are clean burning, with no smoking or leftover wax and it’s not just the candles themselves that are environmentally friendly. As soy wax is biodegradable and water soluble, it means the glass containers are easily washable, making them recyclable or reusable - they make perfect drinking glasses!        

Carol Nunan

Carol Nunan is an artist and printmaker. She considers herself extraordinarily lucky to live in a beautiful part of the UK, in the historic market town of Hexham, which is at the heart of Hadrian’s Wall country in Northumberland.

‘I’m inspired by the wide skies and broad landscapes of my adopted home of Northumberland. There is so much rich history here – Hadrian’s Wall and the Romans, Neolithic stones, bronze age and Border Reiver settlements, medieval castles and the shoreline. That is not to forget the wild and rare flora and fauna, the geology of the Whin Sill and last but not least, the spectacular dark skies at night.’

Lucy Clayton

With over 20 years’ experience in jewellery and design, Lucy collaborates with the artists in the North East where she lives and works, to make this unique jewellery collection.

The designs are inspired by the country around Hadrian’s Wall, the wildlife and seascapes of our beautiful coastline.

Each item is supplied on a card with details about the artists’ work that has been transferred onto nickel discs by Lucy.
