The Pantiles Antiques Festival

The Venue

Set in the historic heart of the affluent Tunbridge Wells in Kent, The Pantiles is a delightful Georgian colonnade that retains much of its original charm and grandeur of its Georgian heyday. The stylish architecture forms the back drop to a variety of boutique shops, antique shops, cafés and eateries. Postcode: TN2 5TN

What is The Pantiles Antiques Festival

The Antiques Festival is a whole antiques experience, with 50+ selected dealers, an amazing atmosphere, celebrity antique valuations (including Eric Knowles) and lots of places to eat and drink, all whilst enjoying the amazing buzzing atmosphere of the historic Pantiles. Entry for all visitors is FREE.

Will it be any good?

If the inaugural Pantiles Antiques Festival is anything to go by, it will be fantastic! We had thousands of visitors attend and enjoy the event and we also had lots of happy dealers! The Pantiles has a very high natural footfall as well as all of those antique lovers brought in by our extensive advertising campaign, whether trade publications, regional newspapers, social media, Google, regional radio and many more. It promises to be an amazing couple of days!
