VIDEO - Trevalyan Tea at Wallington

A tiny corner of our house at Wallington has been brought to life by the opening of a new tea-room inspired by the war diaries of Mary, Lady Trevelyan.

The tea-room transports you back to the Second World War at a time when Wallington was home to a number of evacuees. The children had fled the dangers of city living in Newcastle for the safety of the estate owned by socialist Sir Charles Philips Trevelyan. Tea the Trevelyan Way is served daily except Tuesdays from 12 – 4pm so surround yourself with the sights, sounds and tastes of the 1940s, and spend a lazy afternoon soaking in Wallington’s history over a cuppa.
