A scary amount of bargains at the London Dungeon car-boot sale

Posted at 11:15 am, February 2, 2013 in Fun London

If you can’t be arsed to taxidermy your own monster, don’t despair. After 38 years of scaring people witlesss at London Bridge, theatrically terrifying tourist attraction the London Dungeon is moving to new premises in the bowels of County Hall on the South Bank in March. A completely new experience is promised there, which means that all sorts of gruesome props from the old site must be disposed of. So what better solution than a car-boot sale of severed limbs, false eyeballs, surgical implements and a whole range of eccentric and gory artefacts? Regulars at Pimlico’s weekly Capital Car Boot, ordinarily accustomed to rummaging through the more mundane pickings of house clearances, are in for a bit of a shock this Sunday Feb 3 (11.30-3.30pm). Fans of the macabre, however, will have a field day: prices for books, bones, dolls and crockery from the replica of the Ten Bells pub (thought to have been frequented by Jack the Ripper and his victims) start at just a couple of quid.

London Dungeon car-boot sale, Pimlico Academy, Lupus St, SW1V 3AT. For info, see capitalcarboot.com.
