BBC One has brought the second season of The Bidding Room for viewers who love antiques programmes. But where was it filmed?

The series comes from the creators of The Repair Shop where a group of experts bids on heirlooms and precious items brought by the public.

Once the seller comes into the room, the whole space turns into a competitive game where each dealer tries to make an attractive offer.

And while some are engaged in the actual bidding, others are interested to learn where the BBC filmed The Bidding Room. So, let’s explore the filming location of the series!
