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 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.

Great

Stayed for a few nights so we could take in a show, go to Greenwich. The directions are spot on but make sure you pick up the A201, its easy if you do and a bit of a b~~~~r if you miss it. DONT GO DOWN KNEE HILL. Great team of wardens, all 8 of them. Mark and Mark are a team. Transport to anywhere is a doddle. If you are a wrinkly you can us ethe bus pass on buses but not trains. Royal Observatory is 3/4 hour away on bus. Be prepared for rip off prices for food. Tina musical. Well lets say as it was the first night of the new Tina it was average. Site though is brilliant if you dont park undre the trees. It was really raining chestnuts.

beautiful quiet site

Such a surprise! When you drive in from a noisy busy suburb and enter into the green tranquil space it is a real surprise. Surrounded by trees and parakeets you would think you were out in the countryside. The facilities are as always spotlessly clean, a decent dog walk is on the site and the pitches are spacious and well kept. Abbey Wood park containing Lesnes Abbey is well worth a visit. It is just opposite the site and the grounds are extensive. We took our dogs every day and nowhere near covered the whole park. It is beautifully laid out with lots of information, including a tea room and information centre around the Abbey. It is all free. It is a short walk to the station, down into the 'village' where you can get a train directly to London Bridge and Charing Cross. While we were there the village held a food street market which was fun and interesting, and the local pub does superb pizzas. If we visit London again we will definitely stop here again

Lives up to expectations

This is my first trip to Abbey Wood as Crystal Palace has always been my favoured London stop. I can’t add much to all of the positive reviews already posted other than agree. It’s a great site, a quiet, green oasis in the urban sprawl that is Greater London. The immediate surrounding area holds little of interest and doesn’t have much in the way of nice restaurants and pubs, but as a base for exploring further afield it’s perfect.

Great base

Great location within 30mins train ride of London Bridge station. Plenty of shops in Abbey Wood village and a large Sainsburys just beyond. Facilities are good - particularly heated floors in showers in winter. Deceptively tranquil location in the centre of a London suburb

Perfect site to visit London

We booked this site to visit London. The shower and toilet facilities are spotless and modern. The showers are very good with plenty of water. There is a small park for kids to play in. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Visiting London. It's a five minute walk to the modern Abbey wood train station. The trains come frequently and it costs about £6 return for Adult and £4.65 for kids return to Central London. Getting off at Charing cross station in London will get you to the London eye and Westminster etc. Also there is a tube station at Charing cross. Kids travel free on the tube. Use the wide gates to let you through. We used Oyster travel cards for every journey for us and just bought return tickets from Abbeywood station every day for the kids. We would definitely use Abbeywood camp site again for London and would recommend it to anyone.
