Compton Verney, Warwickshire

Compton Verney is an award-winning art gallery in a Grade I listed Georgian mansion, set in 120 acres of ‘Capability’ Brown parkland within the beautiful Warwickshire countryside.

The gallery is home to six diverse collections from around the world, showcasing works that reflect the interests of founder Sir Peter Moores, whose vision for the gallery was to provide a venue to share his passion for art. Since opening in 2004, the gallery has built a reputation for quality in everything it does – from innovative, world class exhibitions to the warm welcome from staff and volunteers. In recent years, thanks to a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the historic Chapel has been restored, a new Welcome Centre built and new footpaths installed to open up the park for us to explore.

During our visit, we will have the opportunity to see their summer exhibition.
A Tea Journey: from the mountains to the table. This major thematic show follows a visual journey across time and continents to explore the art of tea and its historical and contemporary significance in British culture. From the cottage to the castle, from its picking to the pot, tea has permeated British society and inspired poets, artists and satirists.

We will be greeted by a welcome talk and hot drink on arrival, with the day then free for us to explore.
