Chester Antiques Show
Last admission 30 minutes before closing
Thursday to Saturday 10.30am - 6pm, Sunday 11am - 5pm
Chester Antiques Show offers 50 stands of antiques and art extending over 3 floors of the recently refurbished County Grandstand. Standards are high, and Vetting plays a significant part in maintaining quality, authenticity and correct informative labels. Many of the exhibitors are members of BADA and / or LAPADA.
Acclaimed as the best of its kind in the North West, the Show proves to be a lure to both exhibitors and visitors who travel long distances to the Show. The venue, ambiance and catering are outstanding – and Chester is full of beautiful architecture, shops, restaurants and hotels for a weekend away!
Established in 1989 by Penmans, the Show has grown to a twice yearly event, extending to 3 floors, using the Members’ Boxes on the top floor for room-sets and an additional café / wine Bar. See Plan.
Catering at the show is excellent. Restaurant 1539 offers gourmet food & wines - on the first floor, with floor to ceiling glass front overlooking the whole Course (the shortest in England, established in 1539). For those with less time to linger over the gourmet food, the Turf Restaurant on the ground floor offers a quicker service, but still very high standards. There is a small snack bar on the Top Floor with seating overlooking the course.
