Antiques road trip visits Boston


Boston is to feature in an upcoming episode of BBC’s popular show Antiques Road Trip.

The show features ‘Britain’s favourite antiques experts’ as they compete to make the most money at auction.

The programme is broadcast weekdays at 4.30pm on BBC One – with Boston set to feature in the first episode of the final week of the series.

This will be aired from Monday, February 1, to Friday, February 5.

Two Boston-area antiques shops were visited by the teams, The Magpie’s Nest in Boston and Junktion Antiques in New Bolingbroke.

With a starting fund of £200 each, five pairs of experts set off on a scenic trip through the British countryside, driving an array of classic cars as they seek out hidden gems in antiques shops and stop off to visit historic and cultural sites.

In this final week, antiques hunters Charlie Ross and James Braxton kick off their road trip in Boston, heading to their first auction in the Norfolk town of Fakenham.

The experts then travel to Stamford, and on to other UK towns.

Antiques Road Trip has been attracting audiences of over three million viewers.
