How to find out about Bonhams auctions

Online
The best first port-of-call is Bonhams.com where the latest news on auctions will always be available. We also have a mobile-friendly site to keep you posted via your mobile on all you need to know about forthcoming events.

Offline
A printed Sales Diary is always available at your nearest Bonhams office or you can ask for one to be sent to you by email by contacting subscriptions@bonhams.com or catalogs.us@bonhams.com. You can also download a PDF from this site once you have registered (see immediately below on how to register)

Catalogues
You can buy a printed copy of Bonhams catalogs via the catalog subscription department, by telephone, email, or by calling into your nearest Bonhams saleroom. An annual catalog subscription for the subjects that interest you offers considerable savings.

You can also view catalogs online by visiting the 'future sales' section of this website and clicking on the relevant auction. Catalogs are generally online a minimum two weeks before each Bonhams auction.
