Compton Verney Art Gallery
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Wheelchair
Superb access and facilities both inside and out - highly recommended for a visit. A Moore/Rodin exhibition was showing at the time which was superb; exhibitions change at regular intervals and there is also a very good permanent collection worth seeing.
Transport & Parking
Once you have purchased your tickets at the booth in the car park, automatic gates allow access up the drive right to the front of the house for disabled parking.
Good access for wheelchairs all around the grounds across the grass and gravel paths - although a little bumpy at times. Inside plenty of space to navigate around galleries, huge spacious lifts give access to all main floors. Mezzanine level is reached by a mini-open lift. Restaurant (which serves excellent food) and cafe are on the ground floor and are easy to access.
Main disabled toilets are off cafe on ground floor but there are also facilities available on the Mezzanine level.
From the lady assistant who greeted us in the car park to the guides around the exhibition areas, everyone went out of their way to be helpful and assist in any way that they could; their kindness and understanding really enhanced the visit.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
Descriptions about the art works in the exhibition were displayed on the wall but, as it was not always easy to get a wheelchair close enough to see clearly, the guides issued folders detailing the same information that could be rested on the knee and read easily (large print - also ideal for partially sighted). Overall, a brilliant day out!
