The programme has been running since 1979 and has spawned numerous internation versions.

The series began as a 1977 pilot production about a London auction house doing a tour of the West Country of England.

This was so successful, that it became the Antiques Roadshow, and the format has remained virtually unchanged ever since.

Parking will be within the estate on the grass, and cost five pounds per-car. The car parks on the A93 will be closed for the day.
