Thomas Watson was established at The Gallery Saleroom in Darlington in 1840. People have been depending upon our expert auctioneers and valuers for more than 170 years. We are the oldest and most respected auction house in the North East of England and have a reputation that has been built diligently across centuries.
Thomas Watson have moved with the times to offer auction and valuation services that are relevant to the twenty first century. Where other auctioneers and valuers have lost touch with their modern clientele, we have successfully transitioned Thomas Watson into the present age.
People from all over the North East of England come to our historic premises to enlist our services. We primarily assist in the auction and valuation of their cherished antiques, fine art, jewellery, collectables and quality furnishings.
Annually we conduct approximately 24 sales, sometimes more, all of which will be listed in our auction calendar. Our auctioneers and valuers can help to prepare you for an upcoming sale, letting you depend upon their vast wealth of knowledge and years of experience. Thomas Watson offer every client a personal level of service to take them through the auction process.
