There was an entrance fee of £2.50 per person, which we thought was a bit mean considering you don't pay to visit an antiques shop! The place was huge. Hundreds of stalls crammed with all sorts of haphazard objects, many crazily over-priced, and a lot...More

A long time since we had visited and really pleased with what we experienced. A wonderful afternoon spent browsing the halls which are packed with a variety of stalls catering for all tastes...old and new, preloaded and designer. Certainly a place to visit anytime.

I also received a parking fine but spoke to a very friendly lady who said that I had entered the last letters of my registration wrong. She said they would waive the fine and sure enough I got a letter a few days later. I've...More

Everything you see at Bygone Times is for sale. Some items are sold as priced, other items are negotiable. You would need to ask one of the staff if the price can be discussed or an offer would be accepted by the seller.
