The Pantiles Arcade located in Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent opened its doors to the public for the first time on 4th July in spectacular style with Eric Knowles of Antique Roadshow fame, hosting a charity day in aid of The Pickering Cancer Drop-in Centre.
More commonly known as The Corn Exchange, the building was originally the site of a theatre, later used for agricultural trading. It also hosted the £1.1million tourist attraction ‘A Day At The Wells’ from 1990 to 2004, which welcomed over 100,000 visitors a year in its heyday.
The new antiques centre at the Grade-II listed Corn Exchange is dedicated to fine art and design and showcases everything from furniture and fine art to lighting and chandeliers, Georgian glassware, French & Scandinavian art glass and continental and British porcelain, as well as local Tunbridge Ware.
A selection of our chandeliers, lanterns and wall lights can be viewed in the Arcade which is open Tuesday to Sunday.
