Champion House is a BBC television drama series.

The series dealt with the Yorkshire-based Champion family and the dramas surrounding the family textiles firm, Champion Mills. Two series were made between 1967 and 1968. The cast included Edward Chapman, Nicole Maurey, Pamela Manson, Maurice Kaufmann and Virginia Stride.

Champion House was created by Hazel Adair and Peter Ling, who had previously devised Compact and Crossroads.[1]

The series was a casualty of the BBC's wiping policy of the era and none of the 30 episodes are believed to have survived.[2]
