Filming at Holkham

BBC Antiques Roadshow

The long-running family series on BBC1 television in which experts invite members of the public to bring along their antiques for examination and valuation came to Holkham to film in 2006.

Hundreds of visitors turned up on the day of filming which took over the terraces surrounding Holkham Hall. The programme was presented by Michael Aspel and it proved to be a day of fantastic finds when a lucky owner learned that an antique three leaf clover brooch was worth the price of a small car, a cannon used on the North West Frontier of India was put back in to action and a pair of Buffalo Bill’s gloves were brought along for valuation.
