Why stay here ...

Abbey Wood Club Site is now fully open following exciting redevelopments. Additional all-weather pitches including some fully serviced pitches have been added, there's now two new-style open grate motorhome and campervan waste points, for easy drive-over waste disposal and no heavy drain cover to lift, and electric hook ups have been added in the camping field.

Abbey Wood Club Site 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 site'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 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 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 http://www.tfl.gov.uk/lezlondon for more information.

An Amazing Site.

What an amazing site this is in every possible way. - we booked it as a base for visiting family in Woolwich, but the site is also so convenient for getting into central London. Bus stops & train station are only & few minutes walk away, as are numerous shops and a Sainsbury supermarket. There’s a small dog walk area on site, but the old Abbey fields are again only a few minutes walk away with so much detailed info on the Abbey. We’d read so much about this site but expected it to be a lot of hype - we were wrong. This is a superb value for money location, with very friendly and helpful site wardens. - This is definitely on our ‘visit again’ list.

A haven near Central London

A five night stay gave us time for trips to Greenwich by bus (40 mins), 2 train trips to Central London (Cannon St or Charing Cross about 25/30 mins), a 'stay local day' when we walked to the nearby Lesnes Abbey Park - amazing views over London and interesting ruined Abbey and park for a picnic and a good local curry at the Taj Mahal. With parakeets in the trees, warm sunshine, clean toilets, a big new Sainsburys 10 mins walk away and friendly staff it was a great camp site to stay for London tourists.

A must to stay at this amazing site so close to London

Staff friendly, helpful professional and cheerful, great team that we met. Facilities spotless. Serviced Pitch needed a small amount of leveling but plenty of room around pitch. Fantastic wooded area loads of wildlife to see. Loved every minute of our stay. Great cafe near train station "Abbey cafe" they do a great full English., and healthy options too. Walk to train station 5-10 mins on way back slight incline. Perfect for visiting London. Definitely a site that is perfect just the way it is.......

Really nice site, hidden gem in the built up location. Brilliant for visiting London

We came to this site as we wanted to take our children to London to visit the museums. It was perfect for this, it has a station, a 10-minute walk away with trains going every 20-minutes into London. The site its self is lovely, its a real hidden gem in a built-up area, surrounded by old oak and conker trees (and various others) which are full of squirrels, parrots! (YES parrots!) and other woodland creatures. The children's park area isn't huge but the children still enjoyed it, although there wasn't a great deal my youngest (2 year old) could enjoy in the park. Overall, we had a lovely visit and would be happy to book here again if we want to visit London borough again.

Great site... but...

Lovely clean site, but a few issues. We now in peak rate and one of the toilet blocks appears to be permanently closed. The site is full. There's a large queue for the showers in the morning. No-one knows why the 3rd shower block is closed. Wifi is pretty much unusable when the site is full. The club charges a premium for the wifi but does not have the capacity to provide a usable service. Not good! Location is good for day trips to central London - about 45mins on the train. Site is well cared for but another drawback is where the site maintenance goes on over the weekend. I come here for a rest and some peace and quiet, but right next to me someone has a powerful hedge trimmer and its very very noisy! Can't this be done on weekdays? Staff are friendly. The site has a small shop. Its so small it only seems to sell icecreams and fruit pastels! But there is a coop 12mins walk away. Shame they don't stock food items on site.
