Excellent accesible art gallery beautiful parkland
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Powerchair
We regularly visit Compton Verney which is fully accesible. It offers standing exhibitions, and a programme of events and interesting visiting exhibitions throughout the year. The restaurant and cafe are pleasant although they can be busy at certain times. Accessible toilets are of a high quality and clean. The parkland is a Capability Brown landscape with a beautiful lake and lots of accessible trails. Blue Badge holders can park up at the house if that is preferable to parking in the main car park and taking the very pleasant and accessible route up to the house. It is well worth booking onto the guided tours of either the exhibitions or the grounds. Staff are helpful and considerate to people with a variety of different needs.Would thoroughly recommend as an enjoyable and stress free venue. Their website is helpful and informative. A membership is available for a disabled member which gives free entrance to an accompanying carer.
Transport & Parking
Parking available in the main car park or next to the gallery if that is preferable. The driveway between the car park and the gallery is wheelchair accessible and it is a pleasant and scenic 10 minute walk in fine weather
The building and grounds are very accessible. All areas...galleries, restaurant, cafe and shop are easily accessed. Good accessible toilets. Grounds can be explored widely in a chair
Large well designed loos with grab rails and plenty of space. We have always found them to be clean and well maintained with clear signage
Staff are considerate and helpful.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
We visit several times during the year. A full day can be spent here browsing some of the galleries, taking in a tour, having coffee or lunch in the restaurant or maybe a picnic and exploring the grounds. Best to let the restaurant know and make a booking if you are in a wheelchair so they can reserve an appropriate table.
