Welcome to Thompson's Garden Emporium - restorers and suppliers of Victorian, and later, garden benches and antiques.

Coalbrookdale specialists – with a large selection always available.

We also have an extensive inventory of unrestored benches.

All bench restoration is in our own workshops.


Based in Durham, we transport and install with care throughout the UK, and can arrange worldwide shipping.

We are always looking for Victorian benches in any condition and other garden antiques.
