BatterseaBoot closes for regular planned and published holidays three times a year; Easter, August and Christmas.

We close for a total of four weeks over Christmas & into January, two weeks for Easter and four weeks in July/August. Other than that we are always open, rain or shine. We do not cancel at the last minute for bad weather.

We take our holidays at the same time every year and generally in line with school holidays.

Please save our number in your phone – it’s easier to make a quick call to check we’re open than have a wasted journey; 07941 383 588. We always update our voicemail when we are going to be closed and you can call it 24/7. Obviously during holidays we cannot reply to text messages so please call or check this website.

We also change the home and bookings pages of our website and pin a post on our Facebook page when we are closed. We have ‘date reminder’ flyers available from the gate every week, all year round. Our dates will always be published here, at the boot sale, on our social media, and in the local press as far in advance as possible.

Our pitch bookings launch at 7am every Monday, except after our holidays when we always launch bookings at 7am on the Thursday, and very ocassionally when there is a bank holiday weekend we launch on the Tuesday. These late launches are always publicised in advance on our bookings page.

The dates below are the Sundays that we will NOT be open during 2019:


EASTER 2019 – 2 weeks

Closed 14th April

Closed 21st April


Please note pitch bookings will relaunch later than usual on THURSDAY 25th April to book for Sunday 28th
