There are Antique Fairs almost every day country wide.

The Grosvenor House Antique Fairs

It took place every June since 1934 and was recognized as the best in the world. Dealers were selling antiques covering many categories, fine antique items, objets d’art, furniture, antiquities, items from antique archaeology, pictures, porcelain, sculpture, even some Egyptian furniture. Unfortunately this wonderful event ceased in 2009. What a loss!


The BADA Antiques and Fine Art Fairs

About 100 members of the prestigious British Antique dealer’s Association offer the best. This is an exceptional gathering of some of the country’s leading experts in their respective fields. The next BADA Fair will take place between Wednesday 13 and Tuesday 19 March 2013 at Duke of York Square, London SW3. Don’t miss it.



An Antique Fair staged annually at the end of June in London, is now among the best fairs in Europe. Here you will find a broad spectrum of items and you should include a visit whenever possible.


Olympia International Art and Antique Fairs

Held annually it now has over 200 exhibitors. This antique fair has many individual dealers selling many categories including Continental, English, Chinese, English Furniture, French antiques, classic furniture, medieval furniture, Antiq. and Fine Art, antique books, china, at the top end, unique antiques and rare antique furniture. What distinguishes this fair is that individual dealers set up their own booths stocked with all items carefully vetted by a special committee set up solely to ensure the highest standards.
