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.

Great Site

Abbey Wood Caravan Club Site
A real oasis in the middle of a city! A secure, comfortable and very well kept site with good transport links on into London. I firmly recommend and will be returning.

An oasis of calm in London

Abbey Wood Caravan Club Site
Stopped here for two nights 20/21 Nov 2021, the staff were excellent especially the meet and greet lady, nothing was too much, her demeanour was welcoming and the bonus was that she was lovely as well with my little dog. The location for links into central London are fantastic, the Abbey Pub next to the station is spot on and the site itself was very peaceful and clean. Will definitely be stopping again…

Shame about the Commercial Vehicles on-site

Abbey Wood Caravan Club Site
We stayed on this site which was very nice and quite. But very disappointed in seeing 3 commercial vehicles on the site. One was a large white panel van which was with a Motorhome. The 2nd van was a Ford Transit panel van on a pitch. The 3rd one on a pitch was a Pickup vehicle which had a commercial box trailer hooked up to the electric. The club rules are that the only commercial vehicles allowed on site are if they are towing a caravan. So these 3 vehicles were allowed on site against club rules. My question is why .

All you need here for exploring London

Abbey Wood Caravan Club Site
This was our second stay here this year and it did not disappoint. A quiet park-like setting with the occasional fox! And yet within minutes of excellent transport links into London; the railway was quiet when we used it outside commuting hours but the local buses into London can get busy; we opted for the river cruise route one day which was excellent to see the sights from a new viewpoint and have experienced commentary. The highlight for us on site was the heated floor in the accessible facility room. This was a real joy and in stark contrast to the comfort of such rooms on some other sites. In our view this investment was very much appreciated! Thanks to all staff on site.

Great site brilliantly located

Abbey Wood Caravan Club Site
We stayed at the Abbey Wood CAMC site from 31st October for 4 nights and can honestly say it was a real pleasure from start to finish. We were welcomed at reception with all the information we needed including directions to the train station. All the staff we met were so helpful. The location of this site makes it so easy to get into the City and even walking back late at night felt very safe. Great site and will definately be going back.
