BBC One has brought The Bidding Room for viewers who are after another antiques programme – so 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!
Where is The Bidding Room filmed?
- The BBC series is filmed at the Andy Thornton Showroom, Victoria Mills in Halifax, West Yorkshire.
Established back in 1975, Andy Thornton supplies furniture, lighting, metalwork and antiques for a range of businesses such as restaurants and pubs.
Their showrooms offer people a unique environment to see how different furniture pieces would look in an actual space.
