About Us

Why should an auction house be partnering with an estate agency? Well, moving house is one of the times that all one’s possessions come up for review. Another is the sad time of losing a loved one and starting the often-difficult job of clearing a house for sale.

Whether it’s for Probate, downsizing, raising a few extra funds - or just the feeling that it’s time someone else loved a particular item – the Canterbury Auction Galleries can be a friend indeed.

There are many ways to sell unwanted items of course but really nothing comes close to a long-established, reputable and trusted auction house like ours.

Every item will be vetted by our team of specialists so you can be sure that nothing precious slips through the net. And we reach a vast audience for your items: each of our six auctions a year, spanning 2-3 days, reaches a huge pool of potential buyers and interested collectors from across the world. Around 6,000 people worldwide register for our sales.

The Canterbury Auction Galleries has been long established, achieving prices and attracting quality to rival the most famous of London auction houses – we often make the news with the items we sell and the prices we achieve.

Our friendly team of specialists has an excellent track record in valuing and selling a full range of antiques and collectibles, from fine arts and furniture to dazzling jewellery and 20th Century design, and from militaria to Chinese art. Even modern-day collectibles, that are rising in value rapidly and appeal to the next generation - most recently we sold a collection of Barbie dolls and Pokemon cards and the results were pleasantly surprising.

So if you’re considering downsizing, why not book to come along to a valuation session in our beautiful, historic building in Canterbury? Recognized by the Law Society, we also offer valuations at your home - our probate visits are well-known to be sensitive and professional at what is usually a difficult time. We are proud of our international reputation and expertise and our good name is everything to us - we’ll take excellent care of you and your treasured possessions.
