Crystal Palace Caravan Club Site is ideally placed for visitors who are keen to visit London and all its attractions. The number 3 bus near the caravan park departs regularly and goes into London via Brixton, Lambeth Bridge, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus and terminates on Oxford Street.  The bus operates all through the night so late night theatre goers need not worry about returning to site.

As well as London itself, the site is ideally situated for annual events such as  the Ideal Home Exhibition, the London to Brighton mini run, the London Marathon, the Chelsea Flower show, Wimbledon and of course Christmas and New Year events. 

If you need a break from the capital, Crystal Palace is a delightful community in its own right with plenty of pubs, shops and restaurants all within walking distance. The huge park next door still displays the ruins of the iconic Crystal Palace which unfortunately burnt down in 1936. The local museum open at weekends is well worth a visit to see pictures of the Palace as it was. Also within the park are Paxton's dinosaurs surrounding a lovely boating lake, playgrounds, cafe plus a national sports centre complete with a public swimming pool, play area and maze, and it is an ideal venue for cycling and walking. It is possible to cycle into London using route 23 of the National Cycle Network which starts in Dulwich, home to the Picture Gallery.

Please note - this site is situated within the London Low Emission Zone. Visit http://www.tfl.gov.uk/lezlondon for more information.

Caravanners "BEWARE" Peg 16

1 out of 5

I spent 5 nights on peg 16 under a huge tree and after this my awning was black stained beyond belief due to sticky sap dropping. caravan and car looked awful and took some scrubbing, someone thought I had been there 5 months. Wardens did what they could but caravan club have washed their hands of me and said it had not happened before, at least their hands are clean. refused to clean my awning so will cost £170 but will cost them a lot more in lost bookings. YOU have been warned.

Great Site for Access to London

5 out of 5

We stayed at this site for a week and found it to be very convenient, very clean and no excessive noise. Albeit the site is in London so there is noise. Staff was very helpful (borrowed jumper cables) and other campers were too, (another camper quickly came to assist in starting my motor home). I would recommend this site without hesitation as a great base to see London.

Fantastic Site

5 out of 5

This site is so well placed for visiting central London. It is clean and very well kept with great facilities. The staff are very helpful if you need any information. The bus stop is so close with the no 3 every 10 mins only taking 50 minutes and you are in Trafalgar Square. Crystal Palace Park is right on your doorstep and is lovely with a boating lake, cafe and kids playground. Within the park is a large sports centre with an Olympic sized swimming pool if you're feeling energetic.  Crystal Palace has lots of nice bars and restaurants and shops and is walking distance from the site. We have been here 3 times and will definitely be back we love it. There is never a lack of something to do.
