Largest in the South of England

With its convenient links to the capital, the Ardingly International Antiques and Collectors Fair is a truly cosmopolitan antiques event. Only one hour from London, 12 miles from Gatwick and only 90 minutes from Dover, local, national and international dealers and buyers regularly attend the largest IACF event in the south of England. Up to 1,700 stalls housing thousands of goods – from fine antique furniture to delicate ceramics – are available here. It has a reputation as one of the UK antique fairs where quality European decorative items can be found.

With a combination of inside and outdoor stands, this mid week fair is the perfect opportunity to indulge in a little vintage shopping – or hours of professional trading!


This July a new zone devoted to architectural salvage and reclaimed building materials will debut at Ardingly. iacf bring you this exciting addition to Ardingly, in partnership with Salvo Llp, leaders in this area, having previously set up salvage zones at the Ideal Home Show, Period Home Show and Listed Property Show, to name but a few.
The first Salvo Zone will be in the Blue Zone at July's Ardingly on the 21st & 22nd. There will be an introductory offer for pitches, forklift and porter assistance and scaffolding supports for larger items.
For further information contact the iacf office on 01636 702326.
