The Garden Rooms at Tennants

As a family run business, now in its fourth generation, Chairman Rodney, his wife Lesley and his three daughters Caroline, Alison and Jane are delighted to introduce The Garden Rooms, a multipurpose venue combining auctions, with the arts, education and events.

This multimillion pound development on the site in Leyburn was completed in December 2014 and makes Tennants the largest auction house in the UK. This allows us to strengthen the existing auctioneering business, while promoting and enhancing culture and tradition in the Yorkshire Dales. We have incorporated the latest technologies while furthering our department cataloguing and saleroom space, as well as introducing museum standard display galleries.  With these facilities, Tennants can continue to grow their international reputation in the art and corporate market.

In addition to the busy auction calendar, we have a popular cafĂ©, restaurant & bar and gift shop on site.  We also host a busy programme of musical & theatrical events, as well as talks, workshops and fairs.  For more information about our public events or to book a private space please visit

The Garden Rooms at Tennants (including food & drink, gift shop and galleries) is open 7 days a week but please contact us for specific opening times, bank holiday weekends or special events: 01969 621146.
