Below Stairs Antiques of Hungerford has been in the same location in this historic market town for 30 years. Visited by thousands of tourists each year to see the extraordinary collection of Victorian antiques, most visitors treat it as a museum where you can buy things rather than a shop. Everything here is a working original and as well as the shop there is a huge website of items with detailed dates, descriptions and manufacturer - a great antique resource.

Below Stairs stock covers more items than you can possible imagine, from knife grinders to staddle stones, bell boards to enamel signs, stair rods to fantastic lighting. Brass, copper, glass, wood, cast iron, stone and many other materials abound. You can find here many of the most famous and original designers and manufacturers of the industrial revolution through to the Arts and Crafts and Art Nouveau periods. Maybe this sounds like a sales pitch, but this shop, wholly owned by one person, not an arcade is absolutely unique. Try the website

The shop was quoted, in a national magazine, as one of the two favorite shops in all the world of one of the most iconic British designers of the 20th century. What's more this is, almost without exception, all ENGLISH antiques.
