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.

An excellent base for a London holiday

4 out of 5

We have stayed at Crystal Palace site a number of times now and I am sure we will stay again. It's location makes it an excellent site for exploring London and nearby areas. Facilities are fine for a city centre site, but those looking for an 'all inclusive' style site should look elsewhere. The toilet block is fine, although looking a little tired. My only criticism is the Wi-Fi available (at a modest cost) is poor and, in my opinion, unfit for purpose. I had 4 devices I tried this with and in all cases, the connection process was unreliable and once connected, connections often failed. This is despite the signal strength being fairly strong in and around my van (about -65dBm).

Great Location For Visiting London

5 out of 5

This site is a typical Caravan Club Site..... well maintained, excellent facilities, clean, plenty of hot water for showers & washing up, helpful and courteous staff. The location has a good, regular, bus service via the number 3 bus into the centre of London, just 10-15 minutes walk away. The Crystal Palace Railway Station is a 20 minute walk away. There are plenty of shops and food takeaways within 20 minutes walk. This is the second tome we have used this site and we can thoroughly recommend it.

Well run site

4 out of 5

Surprisingly quiet except for aircraft noise which starts at 6am.Most pitches hard standing.Helpful wardens.No 3 bus to Westminster/Regent St useful for London.National Maritime Museum @ Greenwich extremely interesting -something for everybody and it's free.Agree with the other reviews.For a family wanting to 'do' London [or parts of it] this would be a cost-effective and attractive option.South Circular route into site a do-able option but A23/M25 route easier.Whichever,allow time -it is London !!
