Capital Car Boot Sale

Pimlico Academy, Lupus St, Pimlico, London SW1V 3AT

This indoor and outdoor affair is jam packed with stalls, and one of the best car boot sales for clothes. The crowd at Capital Car Boot is fairly young and trendy, and the quality of offerings is high. There’s a good mix of professional stall-holders and casual clearers, and it’s highly likely you’ll end up a few quid lighter by the time you’re done here. Best yet, it's in the heart of London, so no need to travel to the outskirts of the city to grab a bargain. 

The Car Boot is on every Sunday. Entry starts from as little as £1. Check out their wesbite for more information.

Entrance via, 401 Battersea Park Rd, Dagnall St, London SW11 5AP

Battersea Boot is not for the faint hearted, but it’s one of the best car boots in South West London and the later start is a nice touch - though arriving too late in the day can make for slim pickings. Join the boot sale every Sunday from 1.30pm- 5pm with entry fees starting from just £1. See you there!

Bowman's Pl, London N7 6HY

N7 car boot, also known as Holloway Car Boot sale is more inconspicuous than the others. It's free to enter and there's no website- this is proper, old-fashioned car booting - but you can rest assured it’ll there this Sunday, like clockwork.

You’ll be hard-pressed to find any high-end items here, but there’s plenty for anyone with a keen eye at North London’s best car boot sale. 

Peckham Car Boot

Bellenden Rd, London SE15 5DR

A relative new kid on the block, the crowd at South East London's Peckham car boot is definitely the youngest - which makes sense given its trendy location. With a wallet-friendly entry fee of £1 upwards, you'll have access to a treasure trove of fabulous discoveries. From retro fashion to rare vinyl records, vintage homeware to quirky art pieces, there's no telling what gems you'll stumble upon. Join every Saturday from 9 am to 3 pm at Peckham Rye Park, and indulge in a day of shopping, haggling, and scoring unbeatable deals. 

Princess May Car Boot Sale

Stoke Newington, London N16 8DF

Another trendier option, the Stoke Newington location and extra Saturday opening endears the Princess May to young vintage shoppers across town. Early bird entry is advised for the real bargains (and we mean early - it opens at 7am!) though there’s still plenty to shop for if you get there later. Entry starts from £1.
