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.

Another lovely visit.

We have just returned from Abbey Wood site having stayed for five nights. All the wardens are very friendly and helpful, the site is very well kept and the facilities spotless. We visited our son and also went into central London choosing to use the Thames Uber Clipper boat from Woolwich Arsenal Pier to central London very convenient. If it wasn’t for Covid 19 we would have used the tube or bus very convenient from this site. Central London was really quiet and we felt very safe. We will definitely be returning. Fantastic job being done by Steph,Chris and all the team at Abbey wood.

Another very good stay

Once again, we found ourselves at Abbey Wood, predominately to be able to visit nearby family, but also for access to London. As ever, the staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful and they maintain the site to a very high standard. Local buses are efficient and the trains provide easy access into the city. This time we discovered Lesnes Abbey - what an interesting place and it is a lovely landscaped area for a local walk, very close to the site. We look forward to our next visit.

Very well maintained and managed

A very well appointed parkland site with immaculate facilities. Yes the surrounding area is grotty but it’s east London! On site you are very safe and the site Is peaceful, It’s actually hard to believe you are in London. Greenwich is a 20 minute drive and a beautiful place to visit, obviously central London is close by train too. We stayed during COVID and we were impressed at the sensible approach of the wardens. Look out for the warden couple, don’t know there names, she is from Liverpool and he is tall bald funny man, they made our stay great, thank you. The squirrels are entertaining and foxes love a pair of shoes... seriously don’t leave shoes in the awning! A well managed site with good serviced pitches and very clean facilities, we will be back.

Lovely week relaxing & visiting London

After a last-minute switch from a site in deepest Cornwall (to avoid the staycation-related beach frenzy and queues at supermarkets, etc) we decided on a week at Abbey Wood to have a city-break. With 2 teenagers we needed an active holiday. As other reviewers have said, the site is ideally placed for the station into London. The station was 5 - 10 mins down the road & then approx 30 mins directly into London. We had a fabulous week of travelling into London and sight-seeing. We were especially good at 'eating out to help out'! Many of the pubs & restaurants had only just opened and were very pleased to have customers. The Abbey Arms by the station does delicious pizzas. The site is green & lush with foxes & squirrels galore and the chatty but joyful parakeets. Clean, tidy and well-kept with friendly staff. Due to the current circumstances, the park wasn't busy and I had the odd experience of being the only person in the female shower-block most days. Unheard of in school holidays when it is usually packed with women, children and teens blow-drying their hair! Most people seemed to be using their on-board facilities. The only reason I would hesitate to stay here again was the last 10 mins of the journey in which were a bit stressful due to towing a van over the severe speed bumps in the residential area (my hitch was knocked on each one) and lots of 'road furniture' and precarious parking. We made it, of course, but it wasn't my favourite bit of towing. Also, as other reviewers have said, you can't use Knee Hill to leave the site so have to go back through the residential area. Deep breath, plan your route and you'll be fine!

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.
