Door open days


Bonhams is the only international auctioneer with a saleroom in Scotland. Located in the heart of Edinburgh?s Neo-Classical New Town, 22 Queen Street was originally a Georgian townhouse?before serving as a meeting space after a large Victorian extension for the Church of Scotland and later the National Health Service.?The building offers a beautiful backdrop for the fine and decorative art auctions throughout the year and will be open all weekend to give visitors a look behind-the-scenes.

For the first time, Bonhams Scotland will open its doors to give visitors the opportunity to experience life behind-the-scenes at an international auction house, occupying all five floors of the original New Town house visitors will not only see the wonderful architecture but also a varied collection of art, antiques, jewellery and more.
