Where is The Bidding Room filmed? Location for the BBC One antiques show

THE Bidding Room on BBC One welcomes antique sellers with great deals for their unique items.

Here's what you need to know about where the antiques show was filmed.

Where is the Bidding Room filmed?

The daytime antiques show is filmed in West Vale near Halifax in Yorkshire, at the Andy Thornton Showroom.

The space is normally a place used for a contract furniture business, but it was transformed into an auction room for the BBC show.

The company supplies restaurants and pubs with furniture, lighting, metalwork and antiques.

Presenter Nigel Havers said: "It’s fun to present a show for a change, getting to know new people, and not having to learn lines or wear a costume! I am keen on antiques in general, so it was an easy decision for me."

Fans and members of the public are able to visit the showroom, but only if you book an appointment.

The showroom is described by Andy Thornton Ltd as "a unique and inspiring environment with stunning room sets and product displays, showcasing most of our standard product range and vintage stock, as well as samples of our bespoke work".

Nigel has also described the show as "an upbeat, fun show that combines interesting objects with a bit of drama and comedy thrown in, so it’s easy to lose yourself in it and forget about what’s going on outside".
