Toast the King’s coronation this bank holiday weekend with The Caravan and Motorhome Club
(20 April 2023) With the coronation of King Charles III coming up, and an extra bank holiday weekend, tourers can explore royal sites and regale in history at a number of Caravan and Motorhome Club campsites this May, with prices starting from as little as £24.10 per night, per person.
Many people will take to the streets to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla on Saturday 6 May, with a procession from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey. Tourers can either take part in the festivities or step away from the action and instead dive deep into royal history by exploring picturesque royal castles and historical towns while staying at a number of Club campsites across the UK.
What’s more, on all directly managed Club campsites, there will be a toast to the King to celebrate the day.
Abbey Wood Club Campsite is a rural paradise located only 20 minutes from the centre of London on the Elizabeth Line. The campsite is ideal for visitors who seek to experience the coronation festivities in the capital and to watch the Kings Procession from Buckingham Palace. From Abbey Wood, there are also regular river cruises, which operate between Greenwich and Westminster, taking tourers to King Charles’s coronation close-up at Westminster Abbey in no time.
After a weekend filled with festivities, tourers can then return to a relaxing stay in the green oasis of the Club Campsite. This campsite is ideal for a special city trip getaway during the bank holiday. Prices start from £26.60^ per night based on one adult and a standard pitch.
Set in a pocket of grassy Kentish countryside close to the sandy beaches of Hythe, the Daleacres Club Campsite offers a bank holiday getaway popular for those tourers who enjoy getting out in the great outdoors for walks and exploring charming seaside towns.
