  • Antiques & Arts

    Nationally – even internationally - famous and frequently starring on TV, Hungerford’s many antiques specialists attract visitors to the town every day. And, many Hungerford residents also find fine historic and traditional furnishings, objets d’art and antiquities for their homes in our antique shops and centres too.

    Hungerford Townsite now gives our antique dealers and experts a forum in which they can share with us their expertise and information and, who knows, even offer us an occasional ‘real deal’.

    In this Antiques Channel, you will find web pages provided by all the local antiques business and where local experts and specialists will be guest Hungerford Townsite bloggers on a vast array of subjects from antiques as an investment, spotting a fake, trends to watch for, antiques of the future and the stories behind the scenes of the TV shows.
