Operating since 1826, Lyon & Turnbull are one of the longest established fine art and antiques auction houses in the United Kingdom. In the 21st century, we combine dedicated personal advice and attention with innovative, thoughtful marketing and a deep understanding of the world of art and antiques to offer an unparalleled auctioneer service.
A stunning backdrop to a great range of fine art and antiques auctions – from contemporary art to fine furniture. Often referred to as “the most beautiful saleroom in Britain”, our main saleroom and headquarters is conveniently located in Edinburgh’s New Town. The beating neoclassical heart of Lyon & Turnbull, the building was originally designed by Archibald Elliott in 1832, then carefully restored under the watchful eye of the company’s directorial team in 1999.
