During your visit...

Tours last approximately 70 minutes. On arrival at 11am, you will be welcomed into one of our private rooms, for an introduction by our team. The day starts with a showing of our fascinating company video, where you will learn more about the history of Tennants, how the family business began and how it has evolved over the years.

You will then begin the behind-the-scenes guided walk around our venue, where you can ask plenty of questions and learn all about the inner workings of the largest, privately-owned auction house in Europe.

After the tour, you can freely explore our public spaces for yourself, including a browse in our Gift Shop or a stroll through our ever-changing exhibition displays. Refreshments are available to purchase in either our stylish Bistro or Café
