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 for more information. Also, the distances to public transport have been amended since the 2013/14 Sites Directory and Handbook was issued.

Run in with the staff!

3 out of 5

We were only staying the one night and after the altercation with the staff it was probably just as well. Everything was fine until we came to leave. Pitches fine, facilities fine, site quiet, handy for the station and for a lovely walk. Would come again as there seems to be so much to do in this area and to get to London by boat might make a change. The incident arose when we came to empty our motorhome - we had been advised of one MWP (Motorhome Waste Point) on the left as entering the area behind the barrier. However on leaving that would mean that we would need to actually leave and come back in again but we noticed another MWP shown near a toilet block. Unfortunately my husband mistook an ordinary emptying/fill up place for a MWP and was carefully emptying our grey water with a hose when 2 staff members stormed over. The male was very aggressive and asked my husband if he was a new member - we have been members for many years but tend to use the CLs so are not that clued up with the site restrictions plus had never been to Abbey Wood. Instead of politely redirecting us, the staff member was quite abrupt with my husband (in his 70's so doesn't look macho or tough!) and demanded he refer to the plan which we had been handed on arrival. We hurriedly packed away the hose and scurried to the correct place. Truly sorry for this error but we thought the MWP on the plan referred to where we were. It wasn't as though we were emptying our toilet there! and we were trying to minimise any overflow by using the hose!! Lighten up staff and try and be a bit more courteous towards members. Thanks

Lovely stay

5 out of 5

We really enjoyed our few days at Abbey Woods. Wardens were friendly and we stayed on pitch 20 which gave us plenty of space and sun! We felt secluded even though we were surrounded by other vans. The site is very peaceful though early morning noise from the station being renovated did annoy at times. We used both the bus and train into London. 180 to Greenwich is a bumpy 40 minutes ride. Train station is about 10 min walk away and much more comfortable and quicker than the bus. The security is very good at the site. We would definitely stay here again. Grass nicely kept.

Hard to believe we were in such a huge city when we pitched up at the peaceful and green abbey wood site. Outstandingly helpful and friendly wardens. Nothing too much trouble. Facilities immaculate. An array of tame wildlife including squirrels and birdlife including parrots! Site wonderful for transport links to London within a short walk. Good curry house (taj mahal ) near train station.
