EXPLORE OUR GALLERIES AND VISIT OUR GROUNDS TOO.
Over the past few weeks we have opened our Park and Welcome Centre and from 7 July we are delighted to announce the reopening of our House and Galleries. Whilst this is excellent news we have had to develop a new socially distanced model for the venue to ensure your safety and that of our staff. We have introduced a new system of pre-bookable timed tickets to restrict the numbers in the gallery spaces and also to collect visitor data to comply with government requirements.
Our main gift shop in the house will be open and please enjoy refreshments from The Garden Shed at Compton Verney horsebox open Tue-Sun, 10am -4pm.
Ensure you arrive in plenty of time prior to your session start time and allow for a short walk to the house, all sessions start promptly on your selected time. You’ll be greeted in our Adam Hall and guided by a member of our team through the galleries in a restricted capacity group.
There are currently roadworks in Wellesbourne, along the Fosse Way (B4445) and Compton Hill (B4068). Please allow extra time for your journey.
Please familiarise yourself with our guidelines before your visit:
