Now in its 9th series, this popular programme shows members of the public try and make money out of their antiques with the help of experts.

Kent Filming Locations: Herne Bay

The Flog it team travel around the country inviting members of the public to have their antiques and family heirlooms valued for free.  If they are interested in selling them, the team’s experts will consider putting them into auction and flogging them on the owner’s behalf.  It’s a chance to be on TV and walk away a little bit richer.

In this episode, Flog it! presenter Paul Martin and crew visit to Herne Bay for a valuation day held at the Kings Hall. Herne Bay beach is also featured in the filming.

Herne Bay Pier has been a popular filming location in Kent, and first appeared in the opening sequence of Ken Russell’s first feature film French Dressing in 1963.

The Kings Hall is an architectural gem, captivating visitors with its original Edwardian features and idyllic seafront views.

It was originally named the King Edward VII Memorial Hall, and was opened on 10 July 1913 by Her Royal Highness, Princess Henry of Batternberg, on behalf of Queen Alexandra. Main features now include The Grand Hall, Palm Tea Room and Foyer.

Flog it! will air on BBC TWO on Thursday 10 February at 3.45pm
