Why stay here ...

Abbey Wood Club site is currently undergoing exciting redevelopment to add additional all-weather pitches - some of which will be serviced - two new motorhome waste points and electric hook ups in the camping field. The site is open all year and will remain open during the works. Whilst these improvements take place there may be some noise from machinery. We'll make every effort to keep disruption to a minimum.

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.

Lovely

Wow what a lovely site. Travelling from Lincolnshire the journey because of traffic was slow. It was therefore great to be welcomed by someone who was friendly and happy to be of help. The site is spotlessly clean. The team working there are knowledgeable and keen to ensure your stay goes well. For example we were not keen on our pitch and we managed to get it changed. Our front locker hinge broke and we didn’t have a drill with us. One of the team let us borrow his and offered to help. The walk to the station and small shopping area is about 10 mins so really once you get there you don’t need to move your car until you leave. We usually choose CL sites but I definitely will be booking Abbey Wood again, no more London hotels for us! 😀

First Trip to London

Easy to get to off the M25 - be sure to follow handbook directions not sat nav - site an unexpected peaceful oasis in amongst residential area. Close to Abbey Wood Station which gives excellent access to Charing Cross. So much to do in London that 10 days was not enough - be sure to visit Greenwich Site Staff were fantastic - so friendly and helpful - site very well maintained a credit to the staff.

Unexpectedly peaceful site near London's heart.

Well run, clean and organised, good layout. This site is surprisingly tranquil considering its location, there are jumbo jets passing overhead but they are strangely unobtrusive and traffic noise is minimal. There is a flock of green parakeets in the surrounding mature trees to keep you amused - take binoculars. The location of Abbey Wood is near to the M25 and easy to get to. There is not much in Abbey Wood itself except a railway station, supermarket and a ruined abbey. Using the train to get about makes sense - trains run every 15 min. and take 20 min. to get to Greenwich (Greenwich market, Royal Observatory, Cutty Sark)for example. Visit Eltham Palace its a real gem. Pie and Mash(with optional eels and liquer) at Greenwich market. The Arts café near the Thames Barrier is well worth a visit for a bohemian vibe overlooking the river surrounded by small artisan and artist studios. Very enjoyable visit to the otherwise manic metropolis.

Should have stayed longer

We usually stay at Crystal Palace when visiting London but thought we'd try here instead. Beautiful peaceful site and not too far to drive from M25. Great train connections to city centre and lots of buses too although they take quite a long time. Really good for visiting Greenwich and we spent a few days there as there was so much to see and do. Highly recommend Viscount Sunday evening cruise. Must highly commend the staff at this site. So happy and friendly it made our visit a real pleasure.
