The Boot sale area will be cordoned off, and no access will be allowed before 11am for buyers. Selling will commence at, with no access allowed to the public before this time. No vehicular exit from the selling area is allowed before 3pm. Sellers must bring their own tables. The maximum height is 1.9m, 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 City centre, do some shopping, or indulge in a bite to eat in one of the eateries or pubs around the town. The car park is next to the White Horse Bar and lounge, so there is plenty of time to visit and have breakfast or a snack.
