Why stay here ...

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

Open to caravans, motorhomes and campers, the site caters for all tourers and is a great option for those seeking a city break. The site itself is ideal for families, with plenty facilities on-site to make your stay a comfortable one.

River cruises operate from nearby Abbey Wood Club Campsite between Greenwich, Tower Bridge, Westminster, Kew, Richmond and Hampton Court. Open all year, this is one of our busier London caravan sites, 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 Club campsite is situated within the London Low Emission Zone (LEZ) which means you may need to pay a fee based on your vehicle's emissions, age and weight. The best way to find out is to use the Transport for London Low Emission Zone Checker. To avoid any late payment penalties, it's best to set up an Auto Pay account before you travel and then the appropriate payment is taken automatically when you drive into the zone.

Friendly Campsite

Abbey Wood Caravan Club Site
Arrived at Abbey Wood on 15th October for 4 nights on a Service Pitch. Was checked in by a lovely lady who reconised me from a previous stay we had in the Summer. She was very welcoming. When pitching up we had problems with accessing the water to our aqua roll. Rick, who is the husband of the receptionist at check in, could not do enough to help and he finally got our water supply through. Could not thank this couple enough for making our second stay at Abbeys Wood stress free.

Great base for exploring London

Abbey Wood Caravan Club Site
This is a fantastic site - well organised, spacious pitches, good facilities and with a consistently friendly welcome from the helpful and knowledgeable wardens. The trees and wildlife make the site feel quite rural despite the proximity to the superb network of buses and trains a short walk away. We've used the site three times this year - we've brought bikes with us on two occasions and cycled on The Thames Path cycle network and to Greenwich. We've also taken the train from Abbey Wood station to Woolwich Arsenal and then jumped on a Thames Clipper boat to central London. We're really pleased to have found this site and will use it whenever we need our London fix!

Just fantastic

Abbey Wood Caravan Club Site
We have to echo the views of others about this site. We were a little nervous about taking the caravan to London but no more! Really easy to get to and then wow, one of the best sites we have stayed at - just beautiful. It was like staying the in middle of a park, so well set out, fabulous mature trees and waking up was like being in an aviary with the birdsong and the parakeets. The staff are quite exceptional. A lovely welcome and cheerful friendly staff throughout the stay. Quite frankly you could just spend a break here without leaving the site, there is so much to enjoy while you are there. But the added bonus is the nearby train station taking you in 30 minutes to central London. Just great, thank you so much Abbey Wood staff, we have already booked for our next visit.

Great location - oasis of woods - close to London transport network

Abbey Wood Caravan Club Site
What a brilliant site! Large pitches, site very roomy, lots of facilities - modern and clean. Only a 10 minute walk to Abbey Wood over ground train station - circa 30 minutes to London Bridge and the trains run every 15 minutes or so right up to midnight. A perfect location for exploring London/going to a show.

Wonderful surprise of a site and super-friendly wardens

Abbey Wood Caravan Club Site
Travelling through housing estates and built-up areas, you turn left into Abbey Wood site and into a green oasis full of mature trees, well-kept green spaces and the beautiful floral display at reception. The greeting was warm, friendly and welcoming and we were told to find a pitch before returning to reception for a pass key to the gates. The site was not too busy and we had plenty of pitches from which to choose. We found one level enough to not to have to use anything under the wheels. Within the centre of the site and next to the play area there is a large space for camping. The variety of tents was interesting and a far cry from the days when we used canvas. Just one party did not obey site rules, setting up their tent and camp far too close to another unit and lighting a fire with enormous flames and smoke with only about 2 metres space - against all health and safety guidance. The layout of the site made all the rest of the areas feel spacious and not ‘overlooked’. There is a play area for the children, so the days are full of excited noise from the younger ones, playing, riding bikes and scooters, and bouncing balls. Everyone observed site etiquette and things went quiet by 10pm. The nights are slightly disturbed by a little bit of road noise and the screams of the resident family of foxes - but none of it was too intrusive. The facilities were kept spotlessly clean, but for such a large site there is only one disabled shower. With three separate toilet/shower blocks it would be great if the club could think about updating a little and provide disabled facilities in each of them. We were there during some fine weather and the towering mature trees gave lovely dappled shade, and were also home for some gorgeous parakeets. Not too far away and within walking distance there is a Sainsbury’s, some take-aways in Abbey Wood ‘village’ - all a short downhill stroll from the site. There is also a cafe which is very popular with the locals and clearly the daily meeting place for a good chinwag. The railway station too is a short downhill stroll from the site and we found the service to be excellent and very regular. With so many places to visit and so much to do, we will be returning to again enjoy all that Abbey Wood has to offer.
