About Us

With over one hundred Fine Art, Country House, Antiques & Interiors and Specialist Collectors’ sales a year, Tennants Auctioneers is well established as one of the leading regional auction houses in the country.

As a fourth generation family-run business, based in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, we are extremely proud of both the personal service we offer and the highly skilled and knowledgeable team of specialists who head up twenty-six diverse departments.
The acclaimed, purpose-built auction house in Leyburn underwent major development in 2014 and now incorporates The Garden Rooms, a multi-purpose venue combining auctions with the arts, education and events.
As well as a busy schedule of auctions and events, there is a Restaurant & Bar, Café and Gift Shop on site, as well as public galleries and cabinet spaces which house visiting artists, exhibitions and forthcoming sale highlights and collections.
There is free parking for six hundred cars, facilities for the disabled and undercover loading and unloading areas for deliveries and collections.
The offices in Harrogate and Oakham hold regular valuation days and events and a network of regional agents (including London) ensures a Tennants' representative is never far away.
We look forward to working with you and making your Tennants' experience a pleasurable and profitable one.
