Skirlington Market & Car Boot

Yorkshire’s Biggest & Best Market & Car Boot Sale

Skirlington Market & Car Boot was founded more than 30 years ago and is located on the site of Skirlington Leisure Park..  Skirlington Leisure Park is located near Skipsea on the beautiful East Yorkshire coast has over 70 acres of parkland adjoining open countryside and the sea.. The park has a David Bellamy award for conservation. The leisure site was originally a farm and the market continues to make use of the farm buildings today.  The old agricultural barns have become the large indoor market and now house The Cow Shed Bar, Cafes, Farm Shop and a fantastic range of stalls.  A refurbishment of the indoor market began in January 2018 and is now just about completed; bringing a smart new a fresh new feel to the market.  Locals and holiday makers alike flock to Skirlington year after year and this is why it continues to be Yorkshire’s biggest and best Sunday Market & Car Boot.

Can I sell new goods at the Car Boot? No, we do not allow new goods to be sold at the Car Boot at Skirlington.  This is due to the proximity of our market.  New goods are to be sold on the market site only.

Have a great day out with us! There’s something special about clearing out your cupboards, attic or garage and turning it into cash and no better place to sell than at one of our busy car boots on the east coast. Come and see for yourself.
