Galloway Antiques Fairs

Galloway Antiques Fairs was established in 1995 and was run by Susan and Richard Galloway. They organised antiques and fine art fairs held in stately homes across the UK and operated a dateline restriction of 1970 for antique items with exceptions for fine art and sculpture.

In 2023 it was announced that Galloway Antiques Fairs was closing because its owners Richard and Susan Galloway were retiring.
