Thousands flock to Antiques Roadshow at Hatfield House
THE Antiques Roadshow arrived at Hatfield House today (Thursday) attracting thousands of people from across the world to the stately home.
Host Fiona Bruce and the team of experts, including Eric Knowles and Bunny Campione, met the masses as the hit BBC1 show arrived in town.
As always, a range of random fascinating goods from military memorabilia, to jewellery and paintings, were valued by the experts.
It was the first time in a decade that the programme, which is viewed by over six-and-a-half million people per show, came to Times Territory.
On its last outing in Knebworth House a host of valuables were dug out and Fiona Bruce told the Welwyn Hatfield Times today she hoped more of the same could be found.

“You never know what you are going to get; there’s always something intriguing.
“I think a fascinating piece is usually also backed up by an engaging owner, with a story to tell and there’s no reason why we wouldn’t have that here,” the former newsreader, who has been on the show three years, said at the start of the day.
