Why stay here ...
We are pleased to announce that The London Borough of Bromley Council has recently informed us that the plans to redevelop the area where Crystal Palace Club Site is located, have been temporarily postponed. These redevelopment plans would have closed the Crystal Palace Club site forever, from the end of December 2018.
Following discussions between the Council and the Club, we have agreed terms for a short term lease while they plan the redevelopment works. This lease will enable us to keep the site open until Monday 19th October 2020. There is a possibility that the lease could be extended further, but this will be communicated to our members later next year.
We know London is a very popular destination and are pleased to enable our members more time to enjoy one of our most popular and historic sites!
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.
