WINDERMERE Jetty Museum is one of eight venues nationwide chosen to host BBC's Antiques Roadshow this summer.

Fiona Bruce and her team of experts will be heading to the hugely popular tourist attraction this summer to discover your forgotten family heirlooms and missing masterpieces.

For the first time in more than four decades, the series will be filmed on a closed set with a small invited audience only.

Rhian Harris, CEO of Lakeland Arts, said: “We are delighted that Windermere Jetty Museum will still be able to host the BBC Antiques Roadshow this year and are looking forward to welcoming the experts to site. It’s even more of a golden ticket opportunity to attend this year, with 'entry by antique' only, and we are looking forward to discovering a host of local and regional stories on the shores of Windermere.”
