Art Gallery owned by The Moore Foundation. Recent exhibitions include Van Gogh, only 10 minutes away from the Old Manor Cottage.
Compton Verney is an independent national art gallery and ‘Capability’ Brown landscape located nine miles from Stratford-upon-Avon. We are a registered charity (no. 1032478), established in 1993 with the aim of providing an inspiring and entertaining cultural day out for visitors of all ages and backgrounds – whether they have come to see our highly-acclaimed art exhibitions, to take part in our wide-ranging activities, or to enjoy the diverse features of our extensive historic landscape.
Compton Verney House Trust is indebted to the vision and generosity of the Peter Moores Foundation (1964-2014), which rescued the site in 1993 and not only funded the conversion of the derelict Georgian mansion into an art gallery, together with addition of a large modern exhibition and service wing, but also generously supported the gallery’s activities during its crucial early development. Without the Foundation and its visionary creator, Sir Peter Moores, Compton Verney would today be merely a picturesque ruin. We are enormously grateful to the munificence of the Foundation, whose unstinting liberality constitutes one of the most outstanding philanthropic acts of the late twentieth century.
Today, everything we do supports our mission: to share our passion for art and landscape with as many people as possible.
