Why stay here ...

Crystal Palace Caravan 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, Piccadilly Circus 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.

a weekend treat

arriving late afternoon to be met by very helpful staff was a good start to the weekend. A definite site to return to. Great place to meet relations for the week end and do some site seeing in the city of London. Returning to the comforts of the site for a relaxing evening. The site is clean and all the staff very helpful. Bus route straight into the City every 10 mins or so. All ready to book again next year.

Perfect site to visit London

Stayed here twice now to visit London theatres as a birthday treat in November for the last two years  The wardens here are very friendly and friendly making sure the site is kept very well.  The facilities are spotless and it is a reasonably peaceful haven to come back to after the excitement of the capital. Excellent bus service every 10 minutes into town taking between 30 minutes or an hour depending on the time of day. It converts to a night bus at midnight running every 30 minutes (although after a few drinks it feels must shorter ??) I will be booking again for next year.

Great site for exploring London

This site feels surprisingly rural considering your bang in the middle of central London. Apart from a bit of road noise, the site was quiet & beautifully maintained & the facilities were spotless. The Location is fantastic, we looked into staying in a hotel.... once we found out about this site, we will never stay in a London hotel again when we visit the capital. You are literally 10 minutes walk from the train station, which is just a few stops from Victoria. You are from there on the Underground. The number 3 bus goes to regent street & the bus park is around a 5 minute walk away & took about an hour (not the fastest, but great for seeing the sights as you go past Big Ben & the Houses of Parliament). We took our daughter to the winter wonderland @ Hyde park, getting there from the caravan park via trains was pretty quick. You are also pretty close to lots of restaurant & pubs, there is also a Sainsbury's close by. We really enjoyed our stay & will definitely be returning,  hopefully in the near future. Definitely a great place to spend a city break & great to be able to stay in my own accommodation.

superb

The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The site is excellent and saved us a fortune on hotel costs! Forget the train, the NO 3 bus is superb and takes you into the centre of London and even runs all night! IMPORTANT - if driving from the west don't follow your SAT NAV if your outfit is wider than 6' 6" as there are metal gates you WON'T fit through!! We only just made it in our converted peugeot expert. Follow the directions provided by the caravan club.
