Fiona and the team travel to Hillsborough Castle, the official royal residence in Northern Ireland, and Ashton Court in Bristol.

Fiona and the team travel to Hillsborough Castle, the official royal residence in Northern Ireland, and Ashton Court in Bristol to discover hidden treasures among the splendid surroundings, including a medal from the Battle of Waterloo.

At Hillsborough Castle, Paul Atterbury is delighted to discover a rare surviving souvenir of the Great Suffragette Rally in 1908, while Adam Schoon sees a glass ladies' dressing table casket that the lucky owner bought for £5.

Bill Harriman admires a medal awarded to a member of the 6th Inniskilling Dragoons who fought in the Battle of Waterloo in 1815, just in time for the 200th anniversary.

At Ashton Court, Fiona Bruce takes a trip down memory lane with the owner of a Biba umbrella, Hilary Kay is thrilled with the story behind a model of the Clifton Suspension Bridge, and John Benjamin values a collection of classic Art Deco gems.
