Wallington – HODs
10 September 2023 @ 10:00 AM - 11 September 2023 @ 5:00 PMFree
Delve into the history of Wallington and the people that called it home. Visit the house, gardens and take a woodland or riverside walk. Support our conservation work with lunch in the cafe and a visit to the shops.
Sitting in a rural corner of Northumberland yet only 20 miles north west of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Wallington is a large estate where a historical house meets rolling hills, extensive woodland and a walled garden. Take time to explore and discover the variety of spaces, both indoors and out and keep your eyes peeled for the native wildlife – from red squirrels and nuthatches to white-clawed crayfish and otters. For an active adventure, take to the Dragon cycle trail and be inspired by far-reaching views across the Northumbrian countryside. Once home to the unconventional Trevelyan family, the informal house displays beautiful collections, whilst the four outdoor playparks capture the spirit of the adventurous Trevelyan children. Refuel at the Clocktower café with hot and cold refreshments daily. Discover the seasonal kiosks in the walled garden, courtyard and west woods. Treat yourself to gifts and souvenirs from the shops and plant centre.
Wallington’s welcoming house team are eager to share their knowledge of the fine collection of paintings, ceramics, books and the rich history of the donor family and as part of the Heritage Open Days at Wallington this year.
