Antiques Roadshow UK is a digest that gives viewers tools to enrich and improve their own treasure hunts. A cross-country excursion with stops in the UK's top antiques shows and auctions. Well known British television personality Michael Aspel takes his place as Dan Elias' counterpart across the pond, hosting this lively antiques series from the United Kingdom.
A collaboration of WGBH's Antiques Roadshow and the original BBC series now in its 24th season, Antiques Roadshow UK is packed with flea market finds, heirlooms, and junkyard gems—many with a royal pedigree. Antiques Roadshow UK boasts a lively team of savvy British appraisers and a delightful cross section of local citizenry.
Antiques Roadshow UK has traveled the length and breadth of the United Kingdom, from Lochgilphead in the Western Highlands to Selby in Yorkshire, from Caernarfon in Wales to Wisbech in Cambridgeshire, not to mention Barnstaple, Biddulph, Birmingham and Blackpool. There are special open-air shows from Forde Abbey, Knebworth House, Cliveden and Eastnor Castle, while another program comes from Glamis Castle, childhood home of the Queen Mother. And the royal connection continues with a special Victorian Roadshow from the Victoria & Albert Museum to mark the centenary of the death of Queen Victoria.
