Bishop’s Stortford is a busy market town in Hertfordshire. Near to the M11 and Stansted Airport, it has good links to central London and Cambridge.

Throughout Sunday Sainsburys is open, along with many shops, cafés and pubs, all within easy reach of the car park. Parking is from 6.30am until midnight. Although sellers must pack up before 8.30 they may leave their car in the car park. The Boot sale area will be cordoned off, and no access will be allowed before 4pm. You may park in another part of the car park and move to the sales area when it opens. Selling will commence at 5pm, with no access allowed to the public before this time. No vehicular exit from the selling area is allowed before 8pm. Sellers must bring their own tables. The maximum height is 2.1m, so do take this into account, especially if you have a roof rack.

This is an excellent venue, and moreover, before and after the event there is a perfect opportunity to explore the lovely castle gardens, do some shopping, or indulge in a bite to eat in one of the eateries or pubs around the town. The car park is closed at midnight, so there is plenty of time to visit to the Black Lion which is open until 1am.
