Overview

Discover Wallington, much-loved home to generations of the Trevelyan family and a magnificent estate where politics and play came together in the heart of Northumberland.

Gifted to you by Sir Charles Philips Trevelyan, socialist MP and ‘illogical Englishman’, this 13,000 acre estate has something for everyone. 

Cycling comes to Wallington

Bring your bike and explore Wallington on two wheels.  The new Dragon cycle trail has been designed with families in mind. This safe, entry level trail is the ideal way to get out and about and enjoy spotting wildlife and far reaching views across Northumberland.

Make the most of your day

Whether you’re visiting for an hour or two or are spending the whole day here, there’s plenty of ways to spend your time.

Explore the home of the unconventional Trevelyan family Visit the enchanting walled garden Look out for red squirrels at the wildlife hide Enjoy a refreshing walk along the river Relax in the grassy courtyard.

Make yourself at home

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.

Discover a secret garden

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, past the Mary Pool and soak up the tranquil atmosphere. Wander past colourful borders and enjoy the scent of the flowers in the Edwardian conservatory.

Explore in every season

No matter what time of year you visit, there’s always something special to enjoy. Look out for signs of spring from the wildlife hide, wander beneath dappled leaves on the river walk in summer, walk through the woods on a crisp autumn day and warm up in the colourful conservatory in winter.

Eating and shopping

Indulge yourself with a tasty snack or hot meal in the cosy Clocktower Café. Pick up a souvenir or take home a taste of Northumberland with plenty to choose from in our shops. Take inspiration from our flourishing gardens and buy herbs or plants from our plant centre.

great out doors!


Ann N, Telford, United Kingdom
It is a lovely place to have a walk - there are different paths to different area's of the park - pity there isn't other wild bird feeding area's -Not too impressed with the entrance for cars or the positioning of the car park- we don't all have badges! - staff helpful - nice catering area but not cheap which is typical of National Trust - take a back pack with picnic especially if you have children - good area's for children to play - we were fortunate it was a nice, although chilly day.- been in house before - cheaper if in NT

Gardens not at their best


stargazer385, London, United Kingdom
The house itself is quite interesting. Be aware that not all of the rooms are open so it could be a quick tour around. The gardens were not at their best and the rain didin't help, but it is early in the year. Quite a long walk to the walled garden and conservatory. May revisit during the summer to check out the gardens again.

Good for 1/2 day out


AgedMan, United Kingdom
As NT members we try to visit as many places as we can when touring around the country. First time at Wallington and we were not disappointed. We would say it was one of the better NT visits we have made in recent times. Very nice gardens even though it was Feb Half-Term. Would be even better in the summer. The Hall was very nice especially the inner courtyard now closed over. The cafe is up to the usual NT standards. I do wish people would not bring their own food inside occupying table space when paying customers then have to go outside. We sat inside but saw numerous people munching from their pre-prepared food boxes merely buying a cup of coffee to justify occupying a table for 4 persons. Cragside nearby is very grand and has fantastic grounds but is a bit masculine but Wallington Hall is just as nice.

Stunning Grounds


NewClose123, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
Very busy as it was February half term and unseasonably warm but still a pleasant wander around the grounds. Continue to put our National Trust membership to good use which is £8.50 per month, family membership through National Trust for Scotland. New cycle trails look interesting and worth a repeat visit with the bikes. Tried the river and wild life walks this time, nice way to find a bit more peace and quiet away from the relative hustle and bustle of the kids playground and around the hall. Worth noting the river walk has stepping stones. Most amusing for my 14 year old after our greyhound tried two stones and then flopped down into the water. Walled garden is stunning and the greenhouse full of colour, ready for planting. Other advice for a sunny day with the kids off? We brought a packed lunch as the main cafe while usually good was absolutely rammed. For a cup of tea the walled garden was far quieter.
