Reasons for trip

Hemswell Antique Centres has over 375 antique dealers for furniture and collectables, on a former airbase with two cafes. There is also a plant centre next door too, with a good choice of interesting plants and shrubs. Of most interest are the indoor buildings, with all sorts of antiques and bric a brac from years gone by. You can walk along the corridors and seperate rooms for hours looking at the old stuff, some of which is valuable, and in glass cases. Mostly you can touch the goods for sale and ask questions to the staff who are helpful. I bought some new cut glass wine glasses 6 for £6, and some antique pastry cutters, also an antique brooch for £3, real stone and gold. So many things remind you of childhood, from your grandmas house, or your mums even. The furniture is in larger rooms and tends to be large and solid. We saw some cane furniture last time, and my husband is sure it was his once. The main restaurant is wonderful, the most tasty dishes are served with high quality drinks and cakes and puddings. Paintings adorn the walls, some are for sale. It was nice to see the new outdoor restaurant has opened in an attractive garden area. Important in these Covid-19 times, if you aren`t ready to take a risk inside. However, the tables are well spaced and the toilet is clean should you need it.

Another time I went there I bought a bedside table, there was a corner of restored furniture, all newly painted, at £20 it was a bargain.there are some highly unusual things for sale too. You can spend a couple of hours browsing around and then extra time eating and drinking, so it’s the perfect venue if it’s raining.
