About us

Canterbury Auction Galleries building


Situated in the centre of the historic Cathedral City of Canterbury are the long established auction rooms of The Canterbury Auction Galleries.

We are Kent’s leading Auctioneers & Valuers of Fine Art, Antiques and Collectables.

Established in 1991, we have a proven track record of achieving London prices and yet retaining local professionalism and attention to detail.

We hold a two day auction every six/seven weeks, selling the full range of antiques and collectables from jewellery to furniture. These sales are extensively publicised via a fully illustrated catalogue, together with local and national advertising. We hold lengthy viewing sessions for each sale and all of our auctions are available online.

Anyone is welcome to view and bid at our sales, either traditionally in person, by written or telephone bids or by real-time internet bidding which we offer for all of our sales. These provisions enable us to offer the best possible service for our clients locally, nationally and internationally. Whether you are buying or selling, we can offer you a first class service.



We hold a free valuation morning most Fridays, between 10am to 1pm, where our specialists are available to handle and appraise any item brought to them. In addition to this, we also offer free advisory visits to your home or premises should your items be too large or numerous to bring in to us. Transport to our salerooms can be arranged with reputable local carriers.



Our convenient location with excellent road and rail links provides easy access to all buyers who wish to attend in person. We are situated opposite a large council car park. For those buyers who are unable to attend, we offer commission, telephone and internet bidding options.


Professional Services

We also specialise in the production of comprehensive written valuations for Probate or Insurance purposes. One of our specialists will be happy to visit your home to provide a confidential valuation from a single item to complete contents.
