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.

  • The central section opens, adding nine new stations to the TfL network (Bond Street will open to Elizabeth line customers soon).

Don’t tell anyone

Abbey Wood Club Campsite
Don’t tell your friends about this site or they will want to go as well and there might not be space for us the next time we go back. This site is just lovely. An hour into London on the train and tube (£14.40 for a day ticket all over London) and loads of trains til midnight. We went for a Queens Garden Party and with all this COVID we just don’t like hotels any more. When we did the sums this is way cheaper. Trip from Manchester : about £120 in diesel, 2 nights £76, two days passes on the London Trains so all in bout £240 compared with £400 on the train and some dodgy Travel Inn or similar for another £200. I know which I prefer. The site is an oasis in big London, spotless, quiet, really nicely laid out, great wardens and so on. But don’t tell anybody, agreed ?

Consistently good

Abbey Wood Club Campsite
Just back from our second stay at Abbey Wood and it won't be our last. We have a daughter living in London and Abbey Wood is the perfect base for us to visit from in our camper. Peaceful, spotless, great staff. This site fools you into thinking you've pitched up in the countryside somewhere and once inside the gates, you'd never know you've got a major city in easy reach. What more could you ask for? We are always impressed with the tidiness and cleanliness of the site, pitches and facilities at Abbey Wood. I mean... regularly leaf-blowing the site roadways and paths?? Above and beyond :) Add to that the fact that the site is easy to get to and you've got a great train link into the city just 10 minutes walk away and it works great for a city (but feels like country) break. We love it here and will be back soon.

Straightforward access; woodland oasis; easy journey into London.

Abbey Wood Club Campsite
We accessed CMC Abbey Wood via the M25 Junction 2, which is straightforward and well sign posted (‘International Caravan and Camping.’) The site is a woodland oasis within an urban environment and looks and feels safe and secure. Site staff are welcoming and very helpful. Onsite facilities are good and are to a high standard. On our first full day we cycled from Abbey Wood to Greenwich via Woolwich Arsenal. It’s an exhilarating ride and takes in several historic landmarks along the Thames. (See Cycle route in London | The Caravan Club) Greenwich National Maritime Museum is a must (free entry). So too is a walk up to the Royal Observatory where the Prime Meridian can be straddled. We also took the train from Abbey Wood station (5 mins walk) into either London Bridge (for Borough Market, The Shard and HMS Belfast) or Charring Cross (for all things Westminster). We used Visa Debit cards to gain entry onto the rail and tube network. This worked out at no more than £10 return per person. This was our first visit to Abbey Wood, and we shall return.

Wonderful site!

Abbey Wood Club Campsite
When you pull through the gates, you forget you are in the middle of London! It is so peaceful and green. The staff were lovely, all very helpful and friendly. We were here for one night to go to a concert at the O2 arena and I'm so glad we chose to stay here rather than the extortionate prices of London hotels. We drove up from the South coast and it was a pretty easy journey (although I wish we'd look closer at the instructions to get to the site as we ended up driving around narrow, residential streets!). We chose to get a cab to the arena to save a bit of time and it was about 15 mins and reasonably priced for four of us. The site was clean, well laid out - just beautiful. We will definitely return for a longer visit as it's perfect for exploring London. We loved it!

GREAT LOCATION AND FIRST CLASS SITE

Abbey Wood Club Campsite
This was the third time we have stayed at Abbey Wood and as before the site is well organised and is a great location for exploring London - only 30 mins or so to London Bridge by train or water bus. You wouldn't believe how quiet the site is once you are through the gates! Do follow the access directions to ease the stress of the drive through the London suburbs! There is plenty to do nearby, a short walk away is Lesnes Abbey which has great views over London and the Crossness Power Station is well worth a visit too.
