Since it first started trading antiques back in 2013, Southwell Racecourse has quickly gained a reputation for the quality of goods that it displays annually and over the relatively short time of trading manages to attract quite some crowds. Southwell Racecourse is an antique event that is marked in the calendars of both serious antiques collectors and more casual flea market visitors as it is a real showcase of all things old, collectable and nostalgic.

Though it takes place in the summer months over a long weekend, warm and dry weather can of course not be guaranteed! However, English crowds are used to getting out in the rain and a damp and chilly day does not dampen the atmosphere. Southwell Racecourse features over 150 indoor areas created with large tents, and plenty of outdoor stalls too, so if the weather does not oblige just come equipped with wellies and a brolly and continue bargain hunting!

Southwell Racecourse is welcoming to traders and shoppers of all ilks, whether consummate antique professionals or casual browsers. For those wanting to learn more, or indeed gain some information or valuation of their own possible treasures, help is at hand in the form of experts from Golding Young and Mawer who make themselves available at the indoor grandstand.

Some of the many treasures that can be found at Southwell Racecourse includes items of antique furniture , coin and aged money collections, wonderful vintage clothing, jewelery, glassware, kitchenware and other household tools, a wide range of ornaments and other decorative objects, musical instruments, and more. As well as the goods, there are also plentiful refreshments to be found here, providing much needed energy supplements so that the whole day (or weekend) can be spent shopping.

Early-bird entry is available as a slightly increased price for the most keen shoppers, but whatever time or whichever day you visit this market you are sure to find something worth buying.

"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."
Nicolas Martin
