Our favourite free entry car boot sales

Love of a bargain is what draws us all to the world of al fresco second-hand shopping but some of the entry fees for car boot sales across London can be a little pricey. Carbooted have compiled a list of free entry sales for those weekends when we’re watching the pennies.

Holloway car boot

Holloway

Sat (from 8am) and Sun (from 10am)

Holloway Road, N7 (opposite the Odeon cinema)

Nearest tube: Holloway Road

Entry: Free

If you find yourself in north London this weekend, head for the Holloway car boot on Holloway Road. Seasoned sellers and novice carbooters make for an interesting mix of goods on offer, from DVDs to dining room tables. Bring your sharpest elbows and be prepared for a good old rummage.

Hounslow West

Sat (7am to 2.30pm)

Bath Road, TW3

Nearest tube: Hounslow West

Entry: Free

If you’re westward (ho!) why not look in on Hounslow West car boot sale on Bath Road. Perfect for early risers, this Saturday only sale opens to punters at 7am so don’t forget the thermos full of coffee.

Peckham

Sun (6am to 1pm)

Clayton Road, SE15

Nearest tube: Peckham Rye (Overground)

Entry: Free

If saaf of the river is more your style, then Peckham car boot is the place for you. This sale is seasonal and runs every Sunday from March through to October but seeing as this is England, that doesn’t guarantee good weather. Bring a brolly.
