Public Auction & Viewing Information

We are currently only open to the public on advertised days. All other times visits are available by appointment.

Before you come please be aware of the differences you may notice to our day to day operations listed below. 





We cannot wait to have everyone back on site. We want everyone to remain safe, and therefore we have several temporary controls in place.

Space for Everyone

To ensure space for everyone we have put limits on the number of people in our buildings, which may mean you have to wait. Queueing spaces for reception are clearly marked and we ask that you observe them closely.

As an auction house with one of the largest sale grounds in the country, outside space is much more available, thus allowing space for you to keep your distance from other customers and auction staff. You’ll find lots of reminders on display around the sale ground.

Keeping it Clean

We’re keeping the sale ground extra clean, disinfecting busy spaces and surfaces regularly and thoroughly. We recommend you use our complimentary cleaning stations available in the open salerooms, reception and Café 1857. Disposable gloves are available and required for handling the lots.

Cashless Payment Preferred

Contactless payment is the preferred method of payment currently. However, we are still accepting cash (this may take a little longer due to the extra sanitization required).

Focused events

We understand that part of the attraction of a visit to the Diss Auction Rooms is the unrivalled variety of what we have to offer. In the short term we are working hard on events open to the public, albeit, in an extremely focused way. For example, although safety reasons have meant a change to our opening hours, all our services are now available via appointments and, as you would expect, they are proving extremely popular.

Keep Refreshed

On advertised public days Café 1857 will be open for light refreshments. 


Look forward to seeing you soon
