There are extensive parks and gardens surrounding Wallington Hall. They were laid out in the late 1730s. A walled garden was added in 1760, though it altered in the early 20th century. An area around Rothley Crags was laid out by the famous garden designer Capability Brown, also in the 1760s. Woodland and ponds were also placed in the grounds in the later 18th century. The standing buildings are Grade II* Listed Buildings protected by law.
