Wallington Hall was first built in 1688. It has been home to many generations of the Blackett and Trevelyan families. The house is to be found in a formal landscape setting containing lawns, lakes, parkland and woodland. Visitors can walk around the grounds and gardens and look around the magnificent House.

Views around the grounds - 19/10/2011
It turned out to be a sunny but cold October day at Wallington. Work today was centred around the House entrance on East Lawn and we started by clearing out the old flowers and leaves that had collected.
After lunch after preparing the borders, we planted about four hundred 'Purple Prince' Tulip bulbs. These will make a wonderful and colourful focal point to the House entrance in the New Year.
After the Food and Craft Festival of last weekend, which attracted 20000 visitors, the property was very quiet again today. There was only a small trickle of visitors going into the House.
