The art gallery here houses a mixed collection of art ranging from Ancient Chinese bronzes through Naples to British Folk Art - the latter uniquely fascinating. It is a truly eclectic mix, beautifully arranged although for such splendid premises, the paintings - all in immaculate...More

Regular visitors here. Always impressed with the exhibitions. Cafe redesign just isn't working, needs a complete rethink. Food used to be excellent , now average at best and so confusing to get served.

It's been such a pleasure to have watched how Compton Verney has developed over the 10 years or so I've been going there. Love the Capability Brown designed gardens (also the new Dan Pearson wild flower meadow), the way the interior has been modernised in...More

Beautiful house in lovely grounds with 3 really good exhibitions at the moment: "Ravilious and Circle"; the refurbished Folk Art Collection, the permanent portraits exhibition (very fine) and another, interesting temporary exhibition of Soldiers' art. Also some Chinese...More

A really nice place to visit for all ages, beautiful grounds are worth a walk including the short river crossing when it's in operation! Lots of nooks to have a picnic. Orienteering course good fun but quite short

Great exhibition potential. Strange choice of material for temporary exhibitions ...did not enjoy. Permanent collection stunning & outstanding...not to be missed. Children's educational resources poor & lacked effort. Grounds offer a nice space. Café too posh... out of step with most family visitors.

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