Kent Locations used: Walmer Castle and Gardens

The Antiques Roadshow, presented by Fiona Bruce, is the popular BBC One show where members of the public can bring antiques and collectables to various locations across the UK where experts will examine and value the items.

Now in its 38th series, the team visited Walmer Castle in Deal, Kent in July 2015, which will be shown over two episodes.

The public came along to recount the stories behind their antiques, find out more about their pieces and marvel at the castle itself. Treasures brought in for valuation included a remarkable prisoner of war diary, a show stopping collection of ceramic grotesque birds by Martin Brothers and a late 18th-century round revolving table with a secret compartment intrigues.

Walmer Castle and Gardens is a charming Tudor castle set by the sea which boasts eight acres of magnificent gardens, woodland, and sea views. Deal has previously featured on screen in Legacy (2013), Little Dorrit (2008) and Ruby Blue (2008).

The Walmer Castle episode of Antiques Roadshow will air on Sunday 15th and 22nd November 2015 at 20:00 on BBC One.
