Why stay here ...

Crystal Palace Club Site is ideally placed for visitors who are keen to visit London and all its attractions. The number 3 bus near the caravan park departs regularly and goes into London via Brixton, Lambeth Bridge, Trafalgar Square and terminates on Oxford Street.  The bus operates all through the night so late night theatre goers need not worry about returning to site.

As well as London itself, the site is ideally situated for annual events such as  the Ideal Home Exhibition, the London to Brighton mini run, the London Marathon, the Chelsea Flower show, Wimbledon and of course Christmas and New Year events. 

If you need a break from the capital, Crystal Palace is a delightful community in its own right with plenty of pubs, shops and restaurants all within walking distance. The huge park next door still displays the ruins of the iconic Crystal Palace which unfortunately burnt down in 1936. The local museum open at weekends is well worth a visit to see pictures of the Palace as it was. Also within the park are Paxton's dinosaurs surrounding a lovely boating lake, playgrounds, cafe plus a national sports centre complete with a public swimming pool, play area and maze, and it is an ideal venue for cycling and walking. It is possible to cycle into London using route 23 of the National Cycle Network which starts in Dulwich, home to the Picture Gallery.

Please note - this site is situated within the London Low Emission Zone. Visit http://www.tfl.gov.uk/lezlondon for more information.

Turn right at these lights for 360 metres, then turn right again at the next set of traffic lights onto Sydenham Hill road. Go up the hill to the mini roundabout and turn right again still on Sydenham Hill Road. After 1 mile at the mini roundabout the site entrance will be straight ahead. From the East exit M25 at junction 2: follow signpost for A2 London, then take A205 (South Circular) to Catford. After going under the railway bridge turn left onto A212 signposted Sydenham and Crystal Palace. Go through Sydenham up Westwood Hill to the very top, at the mini roundabout the site is on left. Note: care required at the 2 mini roundabouts at site entrance. When office closed please use the late arrival area (open all night). Security barriers for entry to pitches.

Don't close!

Fabulous location, very clean, peaceful, but so sad it is closing. We have only just found this site, but apparently it will close in December. We used it in June 2018 and the buses, tube etc were perfect to visit London. The town itself has a Wetherspoon's and a Sainsbury's. Don't close!

First and Last time

Our first visit to this delightful site but sadly the lazt as Bromley Council seemingly cashing in on the location value-just criminal. A great site for visiting London as bus and train links excellent. Local park and town excellent. Amazing wooded site close to suburbia. Facilities up to CAMC standard if ageing a little. Site Wardens more informative than anything on the Internet and Tourist Info. Info Centre the best we have come across. The site organisation and personality should be a template for all CAMC sites as few surpass VISIT BEFORE IT CLOSES as a gem. Next year a quandry for us

Goodby Crystal Palace Club Site

We visited Crystal Palace club site for the last time on Mayday bank holiday. We had fabulous weather and did what we usually do, which is go to the west end on the bus, then to see a show, then have dinner and return on a bus. All seams to work very well which is why we visit this site. Crystal Palace is buzzing with all the shops and restaurants and everything about this site is great. I can't believe this site is closing as its a jewel in the crown for the club, however I'm sure the club would have done what it could to keep it open but alas it's not to be. Tha amount of foreign visitors is always high, so I don't know where they will go in the future. We have had many good weekends there and it's great because we don't use our car. Farewell this lovely site, I dont think the club will find another location as great as this on.

Site information

Please note that Crystal Palace Club site will close on 17 December 2018, as our lease comes to an end. Following discussions with the landlords we have been informed that the lease will unfortunately not be renewed for 2019. We would like to thank all members who have stayed at this site over the years. If you’re looking to stay near London we can recommend Abbey Wood or Alderstead Heath Club sites, both with good connections into London.
