Whether it’s a high-end fashion steal or a cut-price antique, everyone loves a bargain. Although you definitely get the very best bargains the earlier you roll up, luckily for late starters, in Wimbledon you don't necessarily have to drag yourself out of bed at the crack of dawn to get your hands on a second-hand gem.
Wimbledon Stadium car boot sale
For two days a week the stadium grounds are filled with a vast array of vendors and hundreds of punters, all selling and buying a wide range of items from clothing to crockery to silverware and gold jewellery, so bring a big bag and expect to fill it. Hardcore bargain hunters can get early bird entry from 7am, but be warned the crowds can be ruthless and you need to act fast to get your hands on the real treasures.
As with most markets, always have a go at haggling, but please make sure you do it with charm, grace and humour... and don’t be surprised if the vendors hold on tight to their prices.
