Placeholder Image

This event happened in 2016 and is now finished.

With many of Britain's leading antiques and fine art specialists on hand to offer free advice and valuations, you are invited to raid your attics and bring along your family heirlooms, household treasures and car-boot sale bargains for inspection by the experts.

" We are delighted to be filming at Ightham Mote on 16 June. The charming moated manor house and lovely location should make for a great show and we are all looking forward to it."
- Simon Shaw, Executive Producer, BBC Antiques Roadshow

The doors open at 9.30am and close at 4.30pm. Entry to Antiques Roadshow is free, and everyone is welcome. No tickets or pre-registration is required.

In 2015, nearly 35,000 people attended Antiques Roadshow in the course of the year. Fascinating finds included a jacket belonging to former US president JFK, a musical penknife valued at £80,000, a sketch believed to be by Picasso and bought for a few pounds in a house clearance sale, and a precious toy panda that once flew with the Dambusters.

" The best part of working on Antiques Roadshow is that we never know who or what is going to turn up on the day. The visitors, the objects they bring, their stories and the location all combine to make a fabulous experience that we aim to capture for the viewers. If you are a fan of Antiques Roadshow, curious to see behind the scenes, or just fancy a day out, I would urge you to dig out your treasures and come along - we’d love to see you!"
- Fiona Bruce, Presenter, BBC Antiques Roadshow
