Compton Verney House is a beautifully restored Grade I listed 18th-century country mansion at Compton Verney near Kineton in Warwickshire, England, in the heart of the countryside but just nine miles from Stratford-upon-Avon.
Compton Verney is set in 120 acres of parkland landscaped by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown in the context of an extensive historic landscape. If the weather is clement, you may promenade in the grounds and converse with your aquaintances before the ball begins. Entry to the grounds is free for ball-goers.
Compton Verney also houses the Compton Verney Art Gallery, an independent national art gallery and a registered charity (no. 1032478), established in 1993. You may like to book a guided tour of these highly-acclaimed art exhibitions. Tickets are limited so get them early.
Parking is free for guests coming to the ball.
Please park in the main car park since space is limited at the house itself. A shuttle is available for guests to travel between the car park and the house (about half a mile).
