About Us

Set in beautiful rural Lincolnshire UK, just a few miles from the historic Cathedral City of Lincoln. Hemswell Antique Centres is the ideal venue for an enjoyable day out! Once part of RAF Hemswell - the home of the Lancaster Bomber during the Second World War - the centres now offer a wonderful mix of antiques and collectables from bygone times.

Get away from it all and spend the day exploring the maze of rooms in each building which feature an unrivalled choice of beautiful high quality goods. We guarantee that it will keep you fascinated for hours. We carry the most extensive range of antique pine, rare kitchenalia, rustic and country made furniture from all over the world. Find that rare and unusual piece to compliment any home. Choose from handsome vintage leather luggage and traditional sporting items. Superbly crafted musical items available such as: gramophones, music boxes and instruments. Always a magnificent range of English longcase clocks, period bracket clocks, and wall clocks plus aneroid banjo, wheel and stick barometers from the late C18th to the early C20th. You will discover a large selection of quality Georgian and Victorian mahogany, oak and walnut furniture for the bedroom, sitting room, dining room or for occasional use.

The Centres house a sizeable variety of ceramics and glass from early Staffordshire pottery, oriental porcelain and Victorian glass through to collectable C20th ceramics and glass. An excellent choice of decorative items, including oriental rugs, throws, curtains, scatter cushions, lamp shades, and tapestries are always available, and beautifully displayed. Amongst the fantastic display of beautiful items for sale at Hemswell, we have dealers who sell superior quality silver ware and jewellery. This generous selection is of interest to both the collector, and trade buyer.

Remember it’s not all hard work! Why not take some time to relax and sample the delicious homemade delights from locally sourced produce in our licensed coffee shop, situated in Building 1. We have an extensive menu to choose from with hot and cold refreshments served throughout the day. We have an additional smaller coffee shop at The Guardroom.
