The Pantiles Arcade was the concept of Eric Knowles, refined and supported by the Eridge Park Estate and the Marquess of Abergavenny.
Having formerly operated solely in television, auction rooms and academia, Eric expressed a desire to create a best of breed retail outlet for his own business and others with a shared focus on decorative arts, all inspired by the iconic Burlington Arcade.
As a result of the incredible support given by team from Eridge Park Eric is now coming to terms with the gentle art of retail and is present at the Pantiles Arcade every week hosting lectures and special events - along with many of his celebrated colleagues in the antiques firmament - and will also be on hand to 'talk shop' with anyone who drops by on a casual basis.
“I wish to publicly thank co-founders who shared my vision, David Wilkinson, Richard Price, Grant Ford, Charles Hanson and my own team. I also have to make a special mention for John Bee and Victoria Sawyer from the Eridge Park Estate office for project managing the intense design and build phase. Special thanks also to Carl Bedford and EMS Doncaster for their engineering prowess and steely Yorkshire resolve".
