Ardingly International Antiques & Collectors Fair

Next Ardingly International Antiques & Collectors Fair

Tuesday 5th to Wednesday 6th September 2017

Watch the Ardingly fair here...

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!
