On 29th October I went to the Museums at Night event at Compton Verney. The Compton Verney house was illuminated interactively. There were two control stations were visitors could illuminate the Compton Verney house. It made a fantastic sight. In addition there was an art work with glowing rice in the newly restored chapel. There were other activities that I... More

Went late one Saturday afternoon. Lovely setting in parkland which you can appreciate as you walk from car park. Smart new ticket office. Enjoyed the art work - particularly the European and British Portraits - some real beauties you wouldn't expect. Also you must visit the restored chapel. Too late for the tea room unfortunately. Scary to think the whole... More

This place is an absolute gem. A visit to the grounds and gallery is always enjoyable, but it's definitely worth checking out their programme of special events. I visited recently with a group of friends to enjoy 'In Light', their recent night-time installation/exhibition which saw the beautiful grounds and exterior of the gallery itself illuminated to stunning effect. Quite apart... More

How does Compton Verney do it? After the brilliant Shakespeare in Art exhibition earlier in the year, followed by the exquisitely assembled collection of fifties memorabilia in the Britain in the 50's exhibition, Noe we have enjoyed the superb light show - a fitting tribute to the memory of Capability Brown who designed this fantastic site in his heyday. The... More

When we were looking for venues to get married, both my husband and I fell in love with the Naples salon and could picture saying our 'I do's' between the pillars. After speaking with the wedding coordinator about the details and agreeing a price, we were thrilled to book in for our one off day. As the big day got... More

Went here today with my 5 year old daughter. I don't normally write reviews but it was so good thought I would. We had a brilliant time really did. Spent all day there but didn't 'see it all'. The attention to detail for things for kids to do it brilliant and the staff are really friendly and it's not expensive... More

A small and friendly art gallery in a country house with delightful gardens, also with some outside art installations. There is a permanent collection including Chinese objects and folk art and a wide variety of different special collections. In the past we have seen cartoons by Quentin Blake and firework advertisements! Our recent visit was to escape on the day... More
