Abbey Wood Caravan Club Site is a Caravan Club Golden Jubilee Site and feels positively rural when you reach this gently sloping verdant site. Its mature tree screening and spacious grounds make this a 'green oasis'. This site's unique selling point is it's location - there are shops and good railway connections, providing frequent services to central London in just 35 minutes, within walking distance of the caravan site. Alternatively, nearby Greenwich offers its own blend of fascinating attractions, including the famous observatory and National Maritime Museum.

River cruises operate from nearby Abbey Wood Caravan Club Site between Greenwich, Tower Bridge, Westminster, Kew, Richmond and Hampton Court. Open all year, this is a busy caravan site and is very popular with European visitors during the summer months. There are good reasons to visit Abbey Wood throughout the year though. The Christmas Lights, shopping at the January Sales, the London Marathon, Excel Centre and the Chelsea Flower show can all be enjoyed from this scenic, yet well placed, site.

Please note: this site is situated within the London Low Emission Zone. Visit http://www.tfl.gov.uk/lezlondon for more information. Also, the distances to public transport have been amended since the 2013/14 Sites Directory and Handbook was issued.

Oasis in the city

4 out of 5

Abbey Wood, What a surprise! The site is in peaceful woodland and not far from from central London. There is public transport only a few minutes walk away and frequent bus and train services will take you almost anywhere you want to go. In a whole week we only used our car once and that was mainly to fill it with fuel! Choose your pitch carefully. Some are well under the trees and get no sun at all. However, the layout of the site means no pitch is too far from one or other of the shower blocks ( the third block is closed at some times of the year)

We mostly used the train to go into central London, it's far quicker than the bus, but we did use the bus to visit Greenwich and to go to the Red House at Bexley. We invested in an Oyster card before we went to use on the trains which has a daily cap of £9.50 from Abbey Wood.

Sainsburys is just a few minutes walk from the station so we often shopped each day on the way back to the van, seemed to work best as the weather was extremely hot, but we did go to the Asda at Belverdere about 3 miles away

Bank holiday weekend away

Stayed here for two nights , lovely place you would have no idea you were in a built up area once on site. Quick access to London on the train. Some parts of the site could do with updating especially the washing area. Highly recommended if you arrive early as the midday rule isnt enforced this is possibly due to the easy access and egress to the site. Well worth a visit

Perfect for visiting London

5 out of 5

The site is perfeclty situated in a suburb of London for visiting the city. The next railway station "Abbey Wood" is about 10 walking minutes away. Take the DLR train to the city, not a bus (takes too much time). With the DLR the city can be reached in about half an hour. As a restaurant we can recommend the indian "Taj Mahal" nearby the station.
