Overview

Astra Antiques has been open for Business since 1994. Under it's current ownership, Astra has just celebrated it's 10th Anniversary. The Centre was taken from a small Centre based on a site of Antiques Centre's and built from the Ground Up to a Top Competitor. Here at Astra we display over 50'000+ Antiques and we are growing! We have all kinds of Plans ready to launch for 2015, so now is an exciting time for all of us. This year we launched our Brand New Website which has new items up each and every week. We aim to take Antiques and bring them into the 21st Century. Under our roof you will find anything and everything, Pianos, Grand Father Clocks, Chess sets, Pedal Cars, World War items. Silverware to Retro Vintage. We are also proud to have the Largest collection of Vintage Clothing in the area. A popular place for people of all ages, and the option to Rent the Costumes for use. Hemswell as a site is also Home to one of the Largest Car Boot markets around, so why not come on down, have a day out at the site, and make sure to Visit Astra-Antiques!
