Father and son team Dan and Peter Snow go head to head with experts Charlie Ross and Charles Hanson on the hunt to find the best antique deals as they travel through Hampshire and along the south coast ending up at an auction in Billingshurst, Sussex.

The National Museum of the Royal Navy (NMRN) and Antiques Storehouse at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard were taken over this summer by father and son team, Peter and Dan Snow, as they recorded an episode of Celebrity Antiques Road Trip. The episode will be screened on BBC Two on Friday 4th November at 7pm.

Each programme will see a different pair of celebrities put their wit and bargaining skills to the test as they set out to find hidden gems along the road and auction them off, hopefully at a profit, at the end of their trip. All money made throughout the series will be donated to Children in Need.

One of Britain’s best known journalists and presenters, Peter Snow, partnered with antique expert Charlie Ross, competed against his son, TV historian/presenter Dan Snow, and expert Charles Hanson as the would-be bargain hunters travelled an antiques trail in classic vintage cars. The teams were each given a starting budget of £400 before starting their engines for the cross-country challenge in which they were tasked to make the biggest profit buying and selling antiques.

Whilst on their trip to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, Peter and Charlie couldn’t resist a visit to the National Museum of the Royal Navy where Head of Collections, Matthew Sheldon, showed them a fascinating collection relating to Admiral Lord Nelson.

However, Dan and Charles were hot on their heels and soon caught up with them to find some last minute bargains at the Antiques Storehouse before the big reveal of items collected for auction.
