Explore our Park

Our Park is rich in history and has a multitude of activities for you to enjoy and explore throughout the year whatever the weather.

The Park at Compton Verney that you see today is the result of an 11-year restoration project that is still ongoing to restore the landscape to the one that Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown designed in 1768.
