Office Closure, Auctions and COVID-19

Due to Government advice, the Grosvenor Offices are currently closed to visitors. You can still contact us by email or phone.

The situation around coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve and all dates of both auctions and public viewing sessions are necessarily subject to alteration in accordance with government guidelines.

Our auction of Specialised Great Britain originally planned for April 16 is now due to take place on June 17.

The auction of British Empire & Foreign Countries previously scheduled on May 20 has been postponed to June 18.  This auction is now closed for consignments.

Our next specialised section of Falkland Islands & Antarctica will be included in our British Empire & Foreign Countries auction on September 29.  Consignments for this auction will be accepted until July 15.

We consider that viewing of lots should always be available to bidders prior to sale and, whilst it remains possible to do so, the Grosvenor office will remain open with limited staffing.  Our specialists are working from home but any delays in response to enquiries we trust will be minimal.

To limit the need for unnecessary close contact we encourage clients to contact us to arrange private viewing of lots during the coming weeks.  Please note that work to replace the lift in the Romano House building is not yet completed and access to our 3rd Floor offices will be by stairs only.

Wherever possible we are pleased to provide additional scans of lots for those unable to view in person and for those not wishing to attend on auction day the  3% surcharge for internet bidding has been removed and the system is now free to use
