Especially the British folk art and Neapolitan collections, which must be the best in the country.
And don't miss the famous portrait of Cromwell with the wart, or the bust of Charles the First.
Good lift, decent cafe and shop, and the grounds are gorgeous, with flat, well-maintained paths.
There's a car that runs every few minutes between the car-park and the house, for visitors that don't feel like walking. (It's about 500 yards.) Very handy if the weather's looking dodgy!
The only problem is how to get there by public transport. There's a bus stop just outside the gates (on both sides of the road, so it's OK for both directions), but the bus only stops there twice a day and if you miss the last one you can have problems. For the timetable, ring Johnson's (01564 797070), the operators. The bus runs from Banbury to Stratford and back. Compton Verney is about halfway, a mile or two on the Stratford side of Kineton.
