For heritage folk:
- A grade 1 listed mansion, redesigned in the 1760s by renowned architect Robert Adam, with interiors adapted for use as a gallery and museum (personally I love the folk art collection!)
- 1770s Georgian chapel designed by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown. Partly restored (more work coming soon) the chapel is open to visitors.
- Landscape garden, again designed by Brown, with smooth lawns and accessible footpaths through wooded garden areas, and views across a classic English Landscape.
- In addition to all this, the current exhibitions will also be open to Heritage Open Days visitors, including the popular 'Arts and Crafts House: Then and Now', featuring a large wild flower meadow, inspired by William Morris, and designed by Chelsea Gold medal garde designer Dan Pearson.
So, even if you have just two hours to spare, why not join us today at Compton Verney for a slice of Heritage Open Days - you might like it!
