For the past four decades, the show has visited hundreds of venues in the UK and abroad. Before Covid-19, thousands of people would turn up on the day of filming, many queuing for several hours to show an expert their family heirlooms or car boot bargains.

Over the last two years, through Covid-19, the Roadshow continued filming with strict safety measures and a carefully controlled invited audience only.

This summer, Antiques Roadshow is opening the doors to ticketed guests and filming at iconic locations across the UK.

Applications are now open for free tickets to join attend venues including the Eden Project, Sefton Park Palm House in Liverpool, Powis Castle and Garden in Welshpool, and Brodie Castle & Estate in Morayshire.

The big surprise last night came when a man brought a watch bought for about £300 in Italy by his late brother decades ago which turned out to be now worth £80,000. He said he is definitely selling it.

Presenter Bruce, who will be filming her fifteenth series of Antiques Roadshow, said: “I can’t wait to start filming the new series of the Antiques Roadshow. We’re going to some exciting new locations, and most exciting of all – we will be getting our crowds back – Covid permitting.

“It’s only been two years, but it feels like such a long time since we’ve done that. You’ll need a ticket to come along, so take a look at our website to find out how to apply. It’s completely free, and we can’t wait to see you.”

David Rowe, from the Eden Project, said: “We’re thrilled to be hosting such a well-loved and much-watched show at the Eden Project for the very first time and look forward to welcoming Fiona and the Antiques Roadshow team in September, along with many fans of the programme.”
