LONDON – When he’s not off filming roles in the likes of Game of Thrones and Downton Abbey, British actor Richard E. Grant has revealed that he likes nothing more than to drop into Sotheby’s on New Bond Street.

In an interview with the Bond Street Association Newsletter about his favourite central London places, he revealed what it is that attracts him to the building.

He told the publication: "Not only can you get a close up gander at the great art, antiques and jewellery, but also you can fantasise about actually buying it, whilst being informed and guided by experts in their fields.

"The turnover means that there is always something new to see and discover, which for an inveterate collector, is a magnetic pull."

As well as posing outside Sotheby's in an armchair, the actor was photographed in front of a range of works from June’s Modern & Post-War British Art sale.
