I think he is 6ft 2 range, if Natasha raskin is 5'8 looking at them when they are on bargain hunt she could look a good 6 inches shorter. I would say 6'1-6'2 above average male height for sure and a lovely chap love watching him on television ace personality
Editor Rob: there was an episode of celebrity bargain hunt I believe with Raskin and Peter Duncan. She was taller, I'd have put her 172-3 range...but sometimes on that show she doesn't stand tall and bends knees at times.

it's possible he's more 6'0 than 6'2. lots seem to think 6' is short or something and because like Charles who is very lean and lanky Must be well over it. I have a friend who is 6' and he is very similar body wise to Charles very lean and people always guess at 6'2, I mean when I see him on bargain hunt for example he never looks to me to be over 6'0, but I am only guessing I don't think he is over 6'1

watching a episode of celebrity antiques road trip with Anton du beke who is listed at 5'11 although he has asserted himself 6'0 he appears to be 2-3 inches shorter than Charles hanson Say anton is about 5'11.5 and then that would make Charles at least 6'1.5 even up to 6'3 a bit of a stretch, I think Charles is 6'2 like he has claimed rather than 6'1 in my opinion .

He's just 184cm tbh, , seen him a lot of times over the years at antique fairs I am 187cm in shoes and I have walked right next to him a lot of times, he is no taller than me, I bet his height is 184cm His claim of 6'2 on that antiques road trip could have been in large footwear, I think this listing of 6'1 is fairly accurate to be more precise Editor rob you could list as 6'0.5

I think he is either 6'2 or just under. He struggles to look only 6'0 " and I think he at best looks 6'1 1/2".Looked close enough to get a 6ft 2listing here when next to Ballroom dancer Anton Du beke who is listed as 5'11 on a celebrity antiques Road trip it was repeated on channel 25 the other evening , he was easily 3 inches shorter than Charles quite a noticeable height difference . Looked more like a 6ft 2 guy than a 6ft range to me, quite a tall man

6'1 is about right. I'm 6'3 and was comfortably taller than him when I met him at his showroom in Derby a very decent fellow passionate about antiques
Editor Rob: sorry to hear about your height shrinkage...2 inches is a lot 😆
"I am 6ft 1 ins tall and was eye to eye with stephen when I met him in 2007"

Hi Editor I found on twitter a interesting photo from last year at the Eastbourne tennis tournament with him with Johanna konta who you list at 5'10 while WTA list her 5'11 for argument's sake lets call konta 5'10.5 well Charles look very similar in height ! not more than 1 inch difference . His height claim , I must admit. Charles did in fact did say I 6'1 it was on antiques road trip it was repeated on channel 25 yesterday seems strange for something like that to come out of thin air from Charles on a BBC programme which will be watched by millions , to inflate his height by several inches I can't see him any taller than 6'0 TBH I think 5'11 could be his height there really is very little difference between him and Konta , His natural posture, however, is great on TV which helps him to look taller than he actually is . Never imagined him as being particularly that tall, never I always as a average sort of gentleman like 5'11 . I'd bet he is somewhere in the 5'11"-5'11.5" range. I cannot see Charles as 6'1 !!!
Editor Rob: why are you trying to use another user's name, you've tried it a few times.
It would certainly be interesting to find the photo, there is a little arrow on a tweet you can copy the link to the tweet, if you find it again, why not include the link and use a unique name 👍

I think that 6'0" - 6'0.5" is more realistic!

Nik I have seen this guy on television quite a bit recently and he definitely looked to be under 6'1" so as WeeburaiJones 6'0.5 seems fair seing him next to average men he does not look much taller how many votes are needed before you decide to upgrade/downgrade a celeb?

Rob have you heard of the antiques expert Danny Sebastian rob, well he appears on bargain hunt now, in a newspaper interview he said he was 6'4 he looks it, he was with Charles Hanson on a new episode of bargain hunt the other day, well he did look to me to be quite a bit taller than Charles, I would think 6'1 is the absolute max could be even 6'0.5 ?
Editor Rob: yes, I've seen him in antiques shows, I remember not long ago he did a week with big JOnty, who is near 6ft 4, and he didn't seem much smaller, so Danny may well be 6ft 3 range.
and after I type this I checked his twitter and indeed he said "big ole size 12. I am 6" 3' tall"

He's over 2 inches shorter next to 6'2- 6'2.5 Richard madeley on the celebrity Antiques Road trip it was repeated on yesterday channel on TV the other day , so he's not quite 6'1

I'm happy with 6'1" for Charles, he did claim this on tv while measuring furniture. Yes, six one, or as he would say it, "six wonn".
Seems an affable guy too.

rob could he be more than 6ft 1 my daughter met him recently at her sixth form college she said she was surprised how much taller he looked in real life than on those antiques shows she said he was around 6ft2 or 6ft3 the same height as one of her teachers, I would thought 6ft 1 he is quite a lean man so maybe looks taller than he does?
Editor Rob: Amy, he did claim 6ft 1 and from watching the show I'd have said that was his height.
