  • Very reliable place to sell. I usually turn up with a nothing more than a backpack and two suitcases and I've still made a good profit the last ten visits or so. It doesn't have the pushy or intimidat...  more »
  • My boyfriend and I went to the Capital Carboot sale 2 years ago as we wanted to get rid of stuff that was collecting dust at home, so after doing some research we decided to go to this one in Pimlico....  more »

  • As a buyer and seller i have no problem in recommending this car boot. Great atmosphere and loads of great regulars make this place special. Easy web site to navigate booking never a problem. Help is always On hand and you can actually leave your stall , space hire is cheap and you can hire a proper clothes rail. Whats not to like? Everyone loves a bargain Come and see for yourself John and Marianne
  • Not too impressed.. paid for a nice pitch.. was informed I would not get hassled before a certain time.. however the early birds.. are there/on you before you even get out of your vehicle.. let alone people rummaging through your bags before being able to unpack. And they get rather RC!! when you ask them please can you wait until you've at least unpacked. to many opportunist looking to steal from you!, And your vehicle so please keep your eye on them and keep it locked.. alot are wanting whatever you've got there, preferably for free. They will be hiding a bag ready to take your stuff.. too many thief's!! So watch out.. buy something cheap and I take what they I can get a there hands on!! However there were some really nice traders and buyers..only some!! staff are helpful and friendly.. bring your own hot beverage.. it helps.. may try it again.. need security next time...
  • No reason for this place to be overrated. People just selling junk of their house. Some stuff may be of interest to someone. No worth at all if you are travelling just to see this place. 90% is used clothes books and unknown vinyls. I have seen many such market in London and this was the worst.
  • Fantastic! I've booked a stall quite a few times the staff are organised and professional they work extremely hard to ensure that the day runs smoothly. Tomorrow will be my 5th booking the buyers are great I get lots of regulars repeatedly purchasing from my stall and some just want come and say hello. Very friendly and lots of fun.
  • Been both a buyer and seller for many years. Certainly a worthwhile experience, all the staff are helpful and polite, never any trouble with buyers who come from all corners of Pimlico and beyond, and fellow sellers are supportive and great fun. Having been to many different boot sales in and around London I wholeheartedly recommend Capital Carboot as undoubtedly the best for bargains in all types of items, be they vintage clothes, housewares, collectables or just quirky odd thing that you didn't think you needed but now can't do without. A definite 5 stars!

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
