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 site is situated within the London Low Emission Zone. Visit the Transport for London website for more information.

Excellent, as always

We now consider ourselves 'regulars' at Abbey Wood and our latest stay was, a ever, excellent. We need to change our plans at short notice and the staff could not have been more helpful. They are always cheerful and friendly and the standard of maintenance and cleanliness on the site is very good indeed. The site is great for access to London from Abbey Wood Station and the bus services are good. There is a very large Sainsburys just over the flyover by Abbey Wood Station, walkable from the site too. Thank you to all the staff at this site. We shall be booking again soon.

Another Excellent Stay at Abbeywood

Stayed here for 2 nights (21-22 February) to visit family in London and also see a performance at theatre. Having stayed here in 2019, we had no hesitance in booking the site again (although we had a look at Crystal Palace site which was fully booked for same dates!) and again, we weren't disappointed! Reception staff really helpful on arrival noting site was full (as it often is; book early!) and suggested a number of possible pitches which were all fine. Site is beautifully maintained, clean, tidy and quiet, built into parkland on a hill which makes it seem almost rural! Even traffic noise in unobtrusive and no problem sleeping. 15 minutes walk to Abbey Wood railway station which is 35 minutes from Charing Cross. Pub by station is very friendly and reasonably priced. No hesitation in recommending; we will be back!

Super Xmas break

We (family of 4) stayed for 8 nights, 21st to 29th December, and had a lovely relaxing break. Site was 1/3 full when we arrived and got progressively busier as the week went on, but it was always quiet at night (not sure it would be so peaceful during summer months when it was full). Shower block was always warm and clean with oodles of hot water (great water pressure too), barely saw another soul - felt like we had the place to our selves!! Washing up area was one of the best we've used - lovely deep sinks with (again) masses of hot water. We managed to get good TV reception from van aerial without a booster needed. We bought WiFi which at times was good but also experienced quite a bit of droppage as the site filled up. Easy 10 min walk to Abbey Wood railway station (National Rail - not TfL)., but you can buy TfL Travelcards. Very frequent trains into central London - every 10 mins even in the holidays. We probably could've got cheaper family travel for the week if we'd done more homework before coming due to the daily charges for the children. There is a little Co-op 5 min walk away and we drove to the Tesco at Bexley (15 mins) away for our xmas food shop. Be warned it only has underground parking so you would have to find alternative parking if you have a motor home. We also saw a Morrisons opposite Tesco but don't know about the parking options. We loved listening and watching the parakeets flying around the trees. We saw masses of squirrels but didn't experience issues with any other wildlife despite leaving the bin outside the van overnight. Follow the Club driving directions to the letter and you'll get there without too much bother...the satnav will try and take you down Knee Hill...don't go that way or you'll end in a right pickle as it is a steep narrow lane that buses use and there's barely enough width for 2 cars!! Lovely and peaceful holiday - we will probably visit again but during quieter times as we like our sleep!!
