A fantastic place to visit .There are rooms full of wonderful things and no matter what your interest you are bound to be catered for.
Allow an entire day for browsing. The catering facilities are rather hit and miss. The large cafe on site tends to be expensive and the food can be dire but the smaller cafe is lovely and everything is reasonably priced and edible. All in all it is a fascinating place to visit.

A huge selection of stuff for sale, much of it a pretty good prices, but the turn over is slow, so don't visit too often.

Really well organised and spaced out, got just what we came for in 2 antique wine glasses. Very helpful staff. Wish we hadn’t visited the coffee shop – very weak, tepid coffee and old carrot cake which had seen better days and would have fitted right in at the antiques centre.

We visited here on our way back from a stay in Lincoln as it had been recommended to us. If only we had realised how HUGE it was, we could perhaps have arrived earlier. We got there at 10:30am and at 4pm had only managed about a third of the site! We had a long drive north so we reluctantly had to leave but we will most definitely be back, possibly with a local overnight stay so we can have 2 days to mooch around. A real trip down memory lane and literally something for everyone. There were plenty of coffee shops and toilet facilities too. A great place and with the added nostalgia of it being on one of the old RAF bases so all the buildings are very Art Deco.

Spent three days at Hemswell and still not enough time to see it all. Lots of gems to see and buy and a trip down memory lane for everyone.

I am in a wheelchair and usually cannot get round in antique shops but here i could get all round with no problems. The facilities for disabled are excellent. A pleasure to shop here.

We visited last week, having not been since all the lock downs. Lunch was a breaded chicken breast stuffed with ham and cheese, lovely fresh veg , nothing but good to say about it. Staff were quick and polite, even though they were quite busy

Superb antique centre. Huge & diverse range of dealers / stock in a well organised, well presented & accessible setting. Easy to find, masses of free parking, good cafes (you'll need a pause to recover). If you want to do all of the dealers' stock across the four buildings, allow several hours.
Don't come looking for "bargains", and don't expect Drew Pritchard / Antiques Roadtrip type haggling to achieve much. Prices are generally towards the top end of retail, and few if any dealers offer more than a 5% discount. That said there are some price differences - we saw two almost identical lamps, one twice the price of the other.
Instead, if you've spent ages looking for a specific item, you've a good chance of finding it here.
Sadly the "Hogwarts" tat can be seen creeping in amongst some of the repro dealers, but on the whole a recollection of honest antique & vintage pieces.

Thank you David, What a lovely, positive and very informative review you have left for us. Thank you so much. We really do appreciate you taking the time to leave one. It is very refreshing to hear from somebody who doesn't expect "huge" discounts and appreciates that the antiques dealers do also need to make a living. Agreed that you can find variations in prices and if you look hard you will find what you are looking for at the right price for you. Dealer prices are all relative to where they acquired their stock from - meaning some are able to offer an item at a cheaper price than another dealer. They also depend on how long the dealer has had it in the centres as to what discount they are prepared to give. It is always worth an ask on higher priced items to make a deal. We look forward to welcoming you again
