Owner description: 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!

“Good place for a rummage!”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

Hemswell is a great place for all sorts of antiques and collectables from the traditional to the whacky. If you can I recommend you go midweek when it is very quiet and you can browse in peace. On Sundays there is the car boot and you have to pay to park, weekdays it is free. There are several places to put your feet up and have a coffee or meal. Great day out especially if you are child free. Don't forget to get the prices reduced!

“Antique or vintage - this place has it all”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

There is lots to see in this centre, car boot items, vintage, collectable or antique this place has it all. My main subject is clocks and barometers, but I also collect other small items, a bargain heavy brass Labrador dog is what I found - a couple of quid, can't argue with that. Definitely be returning soon!
