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 Club campsite is situated within the London Low Emission Zone (LEZ) which means you may need to pay a fee based on your vehicle's emissions, age and weight. The best way to find out is to use the Transport for London Low Emission Zone Checker. To avoid any late payment penalties, it's best to set up an Auto Pay account before you travel and then the appropriate payment is taken automatically when you drive into the zone.

Fantastic Location

Abbey Wood Caravan Club Site
Great site. Spotlessly maintained with spacious pitches & helpful staff.. The location, 10 minutes walk to the station with direct connection into central London makes this site perfect for any visit to town. Lesnes Abbey ruins adjacent to the site are well worth a visit too. Oh, and that screaming noise in the night? It’s just the foxes! No problem as long as you don’t leave shoes outside your van.

be aware

Abbey Wood Caravan Club Site
We had a pleasant time here cycling the Thames path , close to supermarkets and shops of all kinds . Railstation within easy walking distance for trips to central London. But and its a big but be very aware that the London Emission zone covers this site and the regs have changed as to what vehicles have now to pay (March 2021). If you motorhome is over 3.5 tons and is not Euro 6 rated or vehicle does not meet the new emmission regs you must pay the charge within 24 hours of entering . The best way to check is to use the tfl.gov.uk/lez site and use your registration to find if you must pay. Do not consult online forums as they out of date.

A good site made Great by the staff

Abbey Wood Caravan Club Site
We have visited twice; we like London and our youngest just gave us our first Granchild! On our first visit I hurt my back lifting awkwardly (hospital job...). The staff were PROACTIVELY supportive, noticing my painful limp and keeping a respectful “eye on me” while wife saw “our” new baby - I certainly didn’t want her to be marooned with me. On our 2nd visit the staff insisted I didn’t “provoke “ my back and helping in a way that I felt OK about, i.e. joking and making sure I wasn’t embarrassed by not being able to “do my jobs”... They have been the best site staff among many good site staff over the years. For all the caravaners who WON’T injure themselves, this is still a great site! London is the draw but also give the Abbey Inn pub, with the Sourdough Pizza restaurant a try - with a Wednesday free film night and many other attractions we enjoyed our visits. The ambience is friendly, with smiles from the owners and what seemed to be local residents and commuters from the adjacent Station. We generally found folks pleasant, perhaps helped ‘cos we don’t “look down our noses” at anyone, anywhere. We prefer, as a couple, to “live and let live” without feeling superior to our fellows (come on: you know what I mean!). Book ahead and be chilled about which pitch you get - there’s no pre-choosing - all have their advantages. We are booked to come back in July for our third visit this year (and if Grandma has her way I don’t doubt we will be testing the Bailey heating and insulation during Autumn...).

Super site

Abbey Wood Caravan Club Site
a warm welcome awates you at this site, the wardens could not be more helpful We had to leave our daughter and mother on site as we had a family emergency and we asked the staff to keep a watch on them should they have any technical issues and they were more than happy to oblige. their few days went without hitch and although we did cut our visit short nothing was to much trouble. the wild life is amazing and yes the foxs steal shoes!!! (We were warned) With other issues on site the wardens need medals and are a credit to our superb club Thank you Abbey wood we will return!!!!! to continue our adventure
