Fine Art Salerooms

Duke’s state of the art premises are situated in the heart of Dorchester, the County town of Dorset.

Duke’s, who are one of Dorset's oldest businesses (established in 1823), redeveloped a large redundant office building, formerly known as Pullman Court, which is immediately adjacent to the vibrant new Brewery Square development.

The fantastic new premises boasts over 15,000 sqft of space and benefits from on-site parking for 50 cars, an impressive reception area and offices, exhibition space, auction galleries, secure storage and an excellent café and patisserie.

The exciting saleroom has created a new arts hub and has received widespread plaudits. Downing Street are known to be keeping a close eye on schemes which help rebalance the economy and create employment opportunities. West Dorset MP, Sir Oliver Letwin remarked that the salerooms were: "great news for Dorchester!"

Lord Fellowes of West Stafford (otherwise known as Julian Fellowes, the Oscar winning playwright and author) also commented:

"We are so pleased that Duke's have expanded into the Brewery Square development. It is already our favourite place to search for works of art and knick-knacks alike, so this can only bring more opportunities to find buried treasure. It is good news for Dorchester and for us. Emma and I wish them well."

The move is seen as an impressive move by auction industry experts, who have seen Duke's grow from a good local player into one of the most respected auctioneers in the UK.

Guy Schwinge and Garry Batt of Duke's commented:

"We have been looking for new premises for more than a decade to complement our existing operations. We never dreamed of finding them at the heart of the new town centre. For us, it represents the perfect opportunity to grow our business and provide superb premises for our clients to visit. In simple terms, it is a perfect "out of town solution", with plenty of parking and superb access, but just a few steps from Brewery Square with its excellent range of restaurants at the centre of this vibrant new quarter of the town"
