Antiques Road Trip is a BBC television series produced by STV Productions, that was first shown on BBC Two from 8 March 2010 to 23 November 2012, and then shown on BBC One since 7 January 2013.



In the programme two antiques experts compete against each other. They get a budget of £200 with which to buy antiques and collectibles, that are then sold at auction. After each auction, the amount in each expert's kitty after costs are deducted becomes their budget for the next leg. The winner is the expert who makes the greater profit over five legs. Each leg is a single programme, which are normally broadcast stripped from Monday to Friday. The experts travel to their different destinations in a classic car, which changes each week.


A celebrity version, Celebrity Antiques Road Trip, is also produced, in which each expert is paired up with a celebrity and each programme is a self-contained contest held over a single leg, with whatever money is left in the kitty at the end being donated to the Children in Need charity.


The record for the largest profit on a single item was held by Charlie Ross, who in 2012 bought a chipped Staffordshire elephant clock for £8 which was sold for £2,700 (or 33750% profit).[1] In 2016 Anita Manning set a new record, when a Buddha statue she had purchased for £50 sold for £3,800, a 7,500% profit.[2]

In 2017, this record was broken again when Paul Laidlaw bought a Chambre Automatique De Bertsch sub-miniature camera for £60 and sold it at auction for £20,000.[3][4]
