Sale Venue

The venue for our regular printed catalogue sales is the Emmanuel Centre at 9-23 Marsham Street, Westminster, London, SW1P 3DW.

TimeLine Auctions London sales take place at the Emmanuel Centre situated in the heart of Westminster, just three minutes walk from Wesminster Abbey.  The Emmanuel Centre is within walking distance of St. James's Park and Westminster tube stations, close to several key bus routes, and main line Victoria station.  There is also plenty of car parking nearby.

Viewing & Registration:

Viewing of all lots will be available at the Emmanuel Centre at times published for each sale.  Private viewing arrangements are also available at our Essex premises, by appointment.

Registration and Invoicing will be undertaken in the Emmanuel Centre, together with viewing.  Members of our staff will be available to assist in any way.

On arrival you will be asked to Register and to provide proof of identity (such as passport, photo driving licence) and proof of address (such as a utility bill).  Commercial clients will be asked to provide a letterhead or business card.  You will also be asked how you intend paying for any purchases.

Sale Arrangements:

The arrangements for each sale will be published on our website and in the printed catalogues.  Please contact us if you have any queries.


If you wish to take any purchases home with you on the day of the sale, full payment will be required before you may do so.  On the day of the sale, the only methods acceptable for payment will be cash (up to a maximum limit of £7,000) or debit/credit card (use of a credit card will incur a 3% surcharge). 

For purchases where immediate payment is not possible, we will forward an invoice in the days following the sale and this will include suggestions for shipping purchases directly to the buyer's registered address.  Please note that shipping can only be to the address registered with us.

Export/Import Regulations:

Any overseas client with a registered address outside the UK/EU who purchases items to which the UK Cultural Property Regulations may be applicable will be required to sign a waiver undertaking that they will apply for the appropriate Export Licence before removing the items from the UK.  We are able to assist in applying for Licences, on request and we will automatically apply for Licenses before shipping to any overseas address.  The processing of licences can be protracted.  Clients are asked to remember that deferrment of a Licence is not a ground to rescind the sale.  Overseas Buyers must also check for any restrictions on the import of items to their homeland.  TimeLine Auctions Ltd is not responsible for any matters arising from import controls.
