A fascinating collection of artwork brought to life by the expertise and knowledge of the tour guide. Cheered up an extremely wet afternoon. In addition, the models of the morris dolls in the folk section were a delight.

There is a variety of art to cater for differing tastes. I particularly enjoyed the miniatures and Morris Men figures, though we certainly didn't see every thing. The food was tasty and good value. A great afternoon finished off by a pleasant walk through the...More

When we moved away from the area in the early 80's I remember this beautiful house as a wreck and therefore our recent visit was a delight! The house is absolutely fantastic as is the restored church. And as for the grounds - they are...More

Very thought-provoking exhibition (as ever here), and we tagged onto a guided tour by accident. Extremely informative and interesting guide.

That's the third and last time I will try and enjoy the restaurant. Basically it's been cobbled together by ideas people who clearly don't go out to eat, or if they do, we have very different ideas of what constitutes a good experience. The wine...More

This review is specifically aimed at the new and utterly disastrous "Compton Kitchen", not the wonderful grounds or gallery. Clearly, whoever designed the new, semi-self service system has never been in a self-service cafe in their life. It was abject chaos, exacerbated by the grumpy...More

We spent a lovely day at Compton Verney recently. There are various galleries and exhibits and I would recommend joining one of the many free tours which was very informative. Following a delicios lunch in the cafe we explored outside where the grounds are beautiful...More

I've visited Compton Verney on many occasions over the years. I live around 100 miles away and use it as a venue to meet family and friends for an excellent lunch and look around their top class art collection. I visited two weeks ago for...More

It's not a national trust property! It is maintained (I believe) by the heritage trust.
