Self Guided Visits

Compton Verney’s six permanent collections, changing exhibitions and surrounding parkland offers students a diverse range of opportunities to explore and engage with historical and contemporary art.


Talks & Tours

Talks and tours offer an engaging enquiry based discussion where students are encouraged to analyse artworks and form their own views.  We offer Talks and tours for all our exhibitions and collections and on a range of themes. Students will have access to a dedicated learning room and sketching materials.
