We offer Antique Road Trips, a personal shopping experience, sourcing antiques in South East of England from specialist shops, centres and fairs.
We can arrange bespoke tours through some of the most interesting and historical towns. The quayside of Rye in Sussex, one of the oldest and prettiest towns you will come across, nestled on the cobbled streets are many impressive antique shops to browse. We stop for lunch next to the harbour and take in the seaside air at this destination.
The fabulous Pantiles of Tunbridge Wells, an area famous for shops of distinction and a plethora of wonderful stock from some of the finest antique establishments. An outstanding choice of furniture, bronzes, Georgian and Regency furniture, Fine art, Silver & more. After shopping a pub lunch is offered at this destination.
Beautiful, historic Lewes in East Sussex with it’s wonderful variety of shops and emporiums really is a must. As well as independent antique shops, there are centres with different dealers all under one roof and when it comes to choice you won’t be disappointed. Expect to find dealers in decorative arts, militaria, architectural salvage, furniture and all kinds of quirky items. It is possible to include a visit to Ford Market which is not far from Lewes, one of the best fairs in the south, with dealers from all across the country, and some dealers from abroad. Lunch will be offered on this outing.
Hastings and St Leonards. Old smugglers used to inhabit these towns on the coast but these days it has all changed. Many traders from London came south with their antique businesses and the market for antiquities has been thriving for many years now. Emporiums, Art Deco, vintage shops, industrial goods and clothing. 5 miles west of the famous Art Deco buildings De La Warr Pavillion a stop off for tea is a real treat. As well as antique shops and emporiums we can arrange guided trips to some of the best antique and collectors fairs in the UK. Hotels or Bed and Breakfast can also be arranged.
We can also help with car hire should you need it for an onward journey.
