Please note that due to COVID-19 restrictions we currently remain fully closed to the public. However, we are now pleased to offer some restricted public viewing of the 27/28 May auction. These viewings are available on weekdays from Friday 15 May until Tuesday 26 May (excluding Bank Holiday Monday 25 May). Places are discretionary and strictly by pre-booked timed appointment.

To ask for an appointment please email or call 0800 4880594 and leave your details. We will call you back as soon as possible with available days and times. Do not make an appointment if you are ill or have any cold or flu-like symptoms or have had contact with anyone with these symptoms in the previous 14 days to viewing. If in doubt be smart and stay home. Public attendance on both sale days is strictly prohibited.

Special procedures for those viewing will be in place and we respectfully ask customers to follow the verbal instructions from our staff and saleroom safety notices at all times. Hand washing on arrival and departure will be compulsory as will the use of disposable gloves for viewing. Gloves, soap and hand gel will be provided and the well-maintained toilets will be open.

The canteen will be closed and no food or drinks (except water) will be available. We would kindly ask customers to use their viewing time efficiently, to think of the health and safety of others while on our premises, and to always maintain a safe social distance of 6 feet or more. Customers are asked to avoid bringing food and drink, bags and unnecessary personal effects into the building and, while inside, to forego the use of mobile phones, laptops, etc. 

We thank you for your kind cooperation and understanding during these difficult times and hope to see some of you again very soon… from a very safe distance!

Stay healthy, stay safe.
