So when every other market gives up due to storms, shopping needs can always be accommodated here! The space is extremely well organised, and a lot of the stalls are set up under cover, so a trip here can always be enjoyed. Parking is free and there are great catering facilities on site, so actually Clitheroe’s Giant Flea Market is a great place to spend a rainy day.

Clitheroe’s Giant Flea Market has an incredibly friendly and helpful atmosphere. All sellers are welcome, whether professional antique dealers or someone who has recently cleared out their house. Spaces are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis and of course it is always advised to arrived as early as possible, for both the best spaces and the best bargains. There is a small fee to enter Clitheroe’s Giant Flea Market, but it is great value and definitely worth it.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
