Compton Verney Review
A neoclassical country mansion remodeled in the 1760s by Robert Adam has been repurposed by the Peter Moores Foundation as an art museum with more than 800 works. The house is set in 120 acres of rolling parkland and lake landscaped by Capability Brown. The works of art are intriguingly varied and beautifully displayed in restored rooms: British folk art and portraits, textiles, Chinese pottery and bronzes, southern Italian art from 1600 to 1800, and German art from 1450 to 1600 are the main focus. Daily tours take place at noon and 2:30. From Stratford by car, take the B4086, or sign up in Stratford for City Sightseeing's Heart of Warwickshire tour; it's 9 miles east of Stratford.
