“Worth spending time here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

Three floors of varied antiques displayed in cabinets and bigger 'spaces' that i believe are rented by individual dealers - mostly good quality, mostly reasonably priced as far as I am a judge, few very high priced items (a few hundred pounds for nice silver pieces seemed to be top) and plenty of other interesting and affordable items (books, coins, medals, pottery, porcelain, all manner of 'collectables'. I ate a very nice homemade sandwich for lunch in the little cafe on the third floor. The building is adjacent to the docks which are also worth a (quick) wander around. City centre is only a ten minute walk away.

“This Antiques Centre is back open!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2013

Despite what it says, the Antique Centre has reopened as of September 2013. Lots of space, cabinets and units all stocked with collectables and goodies. The staff are very helpful and there is a lovely cafe on one of the floors. I would visit again in the future, particularly for Christmas presents as you are not pressured at all by staff and can browse as you please.

“Tremendous selection, not overpriced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2013

I like old dusty antiques shops with old dusty owners, so the thought of this mini-skyscraper with tis floor managers did not appeal. But... an excellent selection of antiques large and small, not overpriced. Worth a visit.

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

Three floors packed with all sorts of antiques and collectibles. There is something to interest anyone and any age.

Good sized lifts give access to all floors and there is a very nice café of the top floor with views over the restored dock area.

Make a day out of it and also visit the Gloucester Quays outlet centre next door, take in the Waterways Museum and maybe also a trip on a river boat.

Loads of parking and a few minutes walk from the city centre and cathedral.
