Car boot sale season is very much back, with many organisers having returned to the swing of things in March.

After a long winter break businesses, sellers and buyers alike were able to spend a weekend taking a look through a wide variety of items seeing if they could spot any bargains.

Their popularity has certainly not waned and if were interested in attending one you might be curious for when the next meet-ups are scheduled across Sussex.

For a huge amount of bargains to find, here are some of the places you can find a car boot sale in Sussex from April and throughout 2022.
