Chiswick Car Boot Sale
Held on the first Sunday of each month (except January, when there is no sale). Exceptionally, this August the Car Boot Sale will be on the second Sunday – 11 August. The Prudential Ride London cycle race takes place on Sunday 4 August and the A316 will be cordoned off, which makes the car boot sale impractical/impossible so it has been moved to the following week.
Chiswick School, Burlington Lane, W4 3UN
One of the most successful car boot sales in the South East, the Chiswick Car Boot sale offers a glorious serendipitous mix of stuff: clothes, plants, DVDs & CDs, books, furniture, toys, you name it. Most of it is second hand, some new, and there are some real bargains to be had. The sales are run by parent volunteers from the school PTA, which is a registered charity, and all money raised from the entrance fees goes to Chiswick School. Car entrance Staveley Road, pedestrian entrance Burlington Lane. NB dogs are not allowed on site.
If you are selling from your vehicle, the queue is often very long and starts very early. To avoid cars jumping the queue, at 05.45 a steward walks down the queue issuing each vehicle with a numbered flyer. If you do not have a flyer, you are not in the queue and you will not be allowed in. The organisers start letting the sellers’ vehicles in at 06.30. Buying starts at 07.00am. The market closes at 12.30pm. For more details, including the rules of what can and cannot be sold, please go to the Chiswick School Car Boot Sale website.
