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.

Great site

Having just read a review from August, I total disagree with it. We have been several times to this site and the staff have always been friendly and very helpful. We went when the beast from the east was on and the staff were worried when we didn't show up on time, due to accident on M1. I call that caring. The site is always clean and tidy. The facilities are kept very clean and warm. I take getting to a site my responsibility, we go via Woolwich ferry when running or Blackwall Tunnel, if you don't want to pay Dartford crossing. We were there last week on a family emergency. We found we had a puncture on the van just as we were leaving. We did ask some advise as our spare wheel is under the van and we couldn't get it out. The staff member didn't hesitate to come and have a go with us. As none of us could get the bolt loose, he left but came back with another member of staff and tools and managed to get the wheel out. They even offered to change the wheel for us, which we declined. But I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU for their help, especially as it was pouring with rain. Sorry we didn't get your names. I think this site is great so near London. It's always busy and of course there ARE sirens going at all times in the area, but it is a city. I've never found this a problem. Great site

Excellent for visiting capital!

Stayed at Abbey Wood for 2 nights in November. Rates site as 'excellent' due to location and friendliness, knowledge and helpfulness of wardens and other staff - thank you! Good sized pitches in woodland about 45 minutes from central London using Thameslink trains from Abbey Wood station; note that this route will soon be upgraded as on Cross-City line! Showers/toilets etc. spotlessly clean and whole site a credit to staff. Note; suggest visitors follow road signs to site rather than descend down Knee Hill as turn into Federation Road is somewhat tight! May need to book well in advance due to proximity and ease of access to capital!

The minimum to be considered a site for the CMC

We were there in august and had a neutral check in and a bad check out. The staff in the desk is tired of tourists, so plain. It seems that bothered them to give directions, and even they did it wrong to get out of there: send us to the A202, which doesn't exist. Even showing the man that it didn't appear on the map insisted in his information, and it lead us to the Dartford Crossing, surely with no information about the tax, when the better route was through the south M25. In the middle: close to London through the train in 40 minutes, plus 10 to the train station, that's true. Although they cleaned everyday, it's a very busy site, and that was not enough for the CMC standards we've met anywhere else. We saw rubbish out of the place for four days till they cleaned it. Though the site is quite, you can listen sirens all through the night. So if not for being close to London, it's not a good site.

excellent site

This is a well established site set out beautifully amongst the trees,i wont bore you writing about the facilities they are immaculate. We stopped here to go to a concert at the O2 The Taxi fare was 16.00 each way.We also visited Greenwich and caught a water taxi into the center of London 6.50 each way and well worth the money as it passes so many famous landmarks. This must rate as one of the best club sites

What's not too like!

Excellent location (bearing in mind it's London), handy for trains and buses, countryside feel, best facilities (as standard Club sites) and very freindly staff. Much cheaper than using hotels and more peaceful.
