Capital Carboot Sale Pimlico

10:15am – 2:30pm
£1.00 – £7.00

One of London’s most central car boot sales, the weekly Pimlico car boot sale has a lot to offer bounty-hunting Cheapos. It’s not a big event, but it’s not too small either; expect to spend an hour or two scouring through everything.

Capital Carboot Dates: Every Sunday, 10am – 2:30pm

What to look for at the Capital Carboot Sale

The main draw is vintage clothing. Many of the stalls are packed with womens clothing of all kinds and styles (along with a few men’s items). It’s mostly a free-for-all, so you might have to do a little digging to find what you’re after. But there’s some great stuff on display if you’ve got the time to hunt for it! Other common sights include enamel pins, jewelry, kids’ toys and tools.

Head along early for first dibs on bargain vintage furniture, clothing and collectibles, as well as the odd used electronic item. Early bird tickets cost a princely £7.00. For cheaper items or just to browse, you’re better off arriving after 11:30 am, when the price drops down to £1.00.

Getting to Pimclico Car Boot Sale

Pimlico Car Boot Sale is a few minutes walk from Pimlico underground station, and six or seven minutes from Victoria Station. If you’re getting the Victoria line here, be sure to check in the Academy building at the end of the yard; it’s easily missed, and there are plenty of stalls inside.

Prices vary depending on whether you’re bringing a car/van (and whether you’re keeping it on the grounds throughout the event). You can also pay for premium spots with more traffic, tables and clothing rails. Expect to pay between £10.00 and £40.00

Only second hand goods are allowed so if you’re coming to flog new gear there’s a good chance you’ll be ejected. The same goes for professional traders, although at least some of the merchants seem to be regular car boot hustlers, especially when it comes to clothes.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
