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. On the very rare occasion we might be forced to cancel due to the site not being suitable for use we ALWAYS put a message on the bookings page & home page of our website, our Facebook page, AND change our 24hr phone line.

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 have ‘date reminder’ flyers available from the gate every week, all year round. Our dates are always 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 8am every Monday, except after our holidays when we launch on Thursdays at 8am.

Full 2024 holidays dates will be published asap.

April 2021 update

Welcome back! As the vast majority of people are aware by now, the boot site is now smaller than it used to be. We lost the use of most of the first playground area at the end of Summer 2019.

For our re-opening in April 2021 we have a NEW buyers entry gate. We hope the boot will feel more as it did prior to 2019. Buyers will enter onsite straight into the the sales area rather than through the awful building site!

Vehicles will still access the boot via the same gate, but buyers will enter via the school access doors (old customers will recognise this, as it was the way to the toilets) You’ll go along the ramp and into the gate directly to the second playground area. The new buyers entrance will be well signposted with red banners outside.
