Why stay here ...

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 - Abbey Wood Station is just a short walk away, meaning you can be in central London in around 20 minutes on the new Elizabeth Line. 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.

Surprising stay

Abbey Wood Club Campsite
What an unexpected pleasure our stay at Abbey Wood was . Wardens cheerful , welcoming and helpful , Facilities clean and placements spacious . Proximity to London attractions perfect , Elizabeth line on the way there (every 5 mins) and UberRiverboat to Woolwich then two mins on Elizabeth line return . Yes there are Foxes but they don’t bother you if you don’t leave stuff around. Parrots flying in the trees were a suprise as was the short walk to Lesnes Abbey woods . Cafe , gardens and still more exploring to be done . Highly recommended.

I cannot believe it’s so convenient for London

Abbey Wood Club Campsite
Stayed for 6 nights with our motorhome during a very hot spell of weather. The site was well shaded by trees and was spotlessly clean. Friendly and efficient wardens. A short walk of 10 minutes, to a largish Sainsburys kept us stocked up on supplies. The trip from Abbey Wood station into London via the new Elizabeth line was speedy and also air conditioned. About 10 minutes to Canary Wharf. We also did a day trip to Canterbury via St Pancras via a high speed train. Great location for the capital.

Abbey Wood Club Campsite
This is a brilliant site if you don't want to drive around. There is a bus stop a few minutes walk from the site; frequent buses will take you to Woolwich and Greenwich. Five to ten minutes walk will get you to the station, where the Elizabeth line will get you to London. There is Sainsbury's near the station too, so you will be able to pick up supplies. The staff are helpful and friendly. We had a great stay.

Great site

Abbey Wood Club Campsite
Wonderful site with easy access from M25 junction 1, were towing a car and had no problem with route. Good size pitches although some are sloping. Very friendly and helpful staff. Easy access to underground station 22 minutes to Oxford Street, £6.00 return. Large car park by station with Free parking for Blue Badge holders. Site is secure with vehicle gate locked at 22.00, Pedestrian gate is open all night, with car park outside for late arrival and late returns. Only issue is the Foxes but do not leave things out and no problem. Will definitely return.

Lovely site

Abbey Wood Club Campsite
Amazing location for its peace and tranquility and proximity to London, the new Elizabeth line is just a 10 minute walk from the site direct into the heart of the city, and even though we were there over the Platinum Jubilee weekend it was never crowded. We found the staff very friendly and couldn’t have been more helpful, regrettable we didn’t take their advice, when we checked in they pointed out that the foxes were very naughty and advised not to leave anything out, pointing to a box of chewed shoes, we were smug, we’re ok everything was safe in the awning, big mistake, huge mistake, it transpires they can get in the smallest of gaps and sleep on chairs, we’ve scrubbed, pressure washed, dismantled and put the chairs into the washing machine, and still they smell so strong that we can’t use them, so make sure you take the wardens advice and don’t give them the chance
