  • Fantastic place for a day or afternoon out. Good food and lots to do with children. Woodland play area was very popular. Only downside is the galleries have steps to help children 🚸 see inside cabinets the stewards are not particularly happy for children to use them. You can pick up activities for them to do and there are walks/trails around the beautiful grounds. Thoroughly recommend.
  • A really lovely and beautiful spot, lovely for a walk around on a sunny evening. Children are well catered for as well with constant activities to entertain them and a forest school that runs during holidays and on occasional days in term time. There are a lot of exhibitions but I have not got round to seeing any yet. I plan to though as year long membership is around £10 so I will be visiting throughout the year when I fancy a nice walk. We also liked the cafe, especially the outdoor seating and had a very relaxed lunch.
  • I have been going regularly to Compton Verney for several years. I love the parkland surrounding the house as well as the regular collections of items of all sorts. The special exhibitions are outstanding and worth visiting every time. There are loads of things for kids to do. There is a Capability Brown chapel to see as well. They also serve good food.
  • A wonderful purpose built gallery beautifully positioned within a grade 1 listed building set in Capability Brown designed grounds. I can think of no better gallery in terms of location. There are six permanent exhibitions as well as there often being a visiting one. We went to see in August 2017 'From Seurat to Riley'. It was considered to be one of the best ever by those who know better than I do.
  • Amazing place. Beautiful gardens and art gallery with Chinese bronzes that will give you a wonderful experience. If you are in this area it is not to be missed
