Astra Antiques Centre is one of the top independent antiquing stores in England and is striving to extend that title to one of the best in Europe. It is located in the perfect spot, in an area that is a veritable hub of antiquing activity at Hemswell, Lincolnshire. The store has been a staple for antique collectors since 1990, though it is under the current owners who took the reigns in 2004 that the store has really strived for excellence.

At the Astra Antiques Centre, visitors will find a wide variety of items ranging from the Victorian and Edwardian eras right up to retro goods and vintage clothing. It is also not just antiques that are for sale here. The store also has an excellent reclamation yard and architectural salvage area, a wonderful selection of postcards, jewelry cabinets with all kinds of treasures and goods from across the globe. It is no surprise that the store also has a customer base that stretches internationally too, thanks to its online store and reliable delivery service.

As well as the antiques for sale, the Astra Antiques Centre offers the chance to recharge in their 5* Decadence Cafe. Indeed, many visitors head straight here and then do their shopping later! They offer a further selling space in an old WW2 bomb shelter, which is quite a unique boast.

On top of all this, an antique fair takes place six times throughout the year outside on the grounds, which coincides with the Homes & Antiques Fair at Lincolnshire Showground and the IACF Fair at Newark. When the fair is on, Astra Antiques Centre is truly a top antiquing location in the UK – market stalls, a class antiques store and an awesome cafe. What more can a keen collector ask for?

To make a visit to the Astra Antiques Centre even more appealing, they offer free parking on-site every day. It is also, of course, free to enter, and their site is accessible to all. It really is a top location for antiquing aficionados and one that should not be missed.
