To Find Site:- From M25 leave at junction 1A and take A206 in the direction of Erith and Thamesmead. The road changes to the A 2016. (don’t take any other signed route to Abbey Wood as this could prove difficult) Exit A2016 onto A2041 signed for Abbey Wood/Thamesmead. Continue on the road which takes you over Abbey Wood Station to next roundabout and take first exit into Knee Hill. Within a couple of hundred metres turn right into Federation Road (site signed) and site is on left. (This is not the official CC route which takes you to Abbey Wood from the A2 and is signed throughout, however the route above is easier with better roads)

NB. This campsite is in the London Low Emission Zone (LEZ) zone. To check the suitability of your vehicle to enter this zone use the Transport for London website

Abbey Wood is one of two Club sites actually in London. Although situated in a very urban environment once on site this is not noticeable, in fact the site is a green oasis with many mature trees and is fairly peaceful given that in the summer it is very busy. The site is open all year and accepts non-members and tent campers. During the summer months there are a surprising number of overseas visitors. There are 156 pitches in total including 73 hardstandings and 50 tent pitches. The site slopes from the top down towards reception and in part pitches are on terraces. Levelling may be required on some pitches. Towards the top of the site is a large tent field. This is one of the Club sites where Camping Pods have been introduced and currently there are four available. Electric points are convenient to pitches and are rated at 16amps and use CEE17 blue connectors. Electric bollards also have TV co-ax connectors which are free to use but you need to provide your own cable or purchase one from reception. This is a handy addition as satellite reception from some pitches is difficult because of tree cover. There are three toilet blocks around the site which are of a very good standard. Fresh water, waste water disposal and toilet emptying points are dotted around the site. There are two motorhome emptying points but both require drain covers to be removed prior to use. For children there is an adventure style playground. There is site wide Wi-Fi available and time can be purchased online. I found it fine most of the time but it did slow down at busy times. The site has a small storage compound. There is also a decent late arrivals area although perhaps best to check with the site about using this facility. Reception sells a few essentials.

The beauty of this site is that it has easy transport links to Central London from Abbey Wood station, which is about a ten minute walk away, and all points between. Abbey Wood is also part of the Cross Rail project which is due to open in 2018 and will provide fast links right across London. Greenwich is with easy reach either by train or by bus from a stop which is a bit nearer to the campsite than the station. Buses are free to use for National bus pass holders. There is a lot to do in Greenwich with the Cutty Sark, National Maritime Museum and the Royal Observatory and more. There is also access to the DLR if you want to visit Canary Wharf. From Greenwich Pier you can also take the Thames Clipper along the river into Central London with several interesting stopping places en route. There are discounts for Oyster Card and Travelcard holders on the boats. For food shopping the nearest is a Co-Operative store in McLeod Road ten minute walk away from the site. For more serious shopping there is a large Sainsbury’s being built just the other side of Abbey Wood Station.

Just got back from a week here which was our second visit. This site is a really good location for visiting central London. Train station is a 5 min walk and there's trains approx every 15 mins to either Charing Cross or Canon St. Over the bank holiday weekend the trains weren't running due to works on the new Crossrail link. We had to catch a bus. Best alternative route was a bus to Woolwich and then the DLR to Bank. Much quicker than the bus to Greenwich. It still took about 90 mins compared to the normal 25 min journey. Engineering works may continue at some weekends for the next few years so check if this may be a problem with South East trains.

The campsite itself is nice. I think they're all hard standing pitches. There's a little tent field in the middle. Site is very secure and feels safe. Toilets and showers are spotless. Wardens helpful. Look out for the parakeets in the trees!

There's a play area for kids which they seemed to be enjoying.

Stayed here for 5 nights excellent site easy to find but another world once inside so rural and peaceful you cannot believe you are in London, well laid out site good size pitches beautifully maintained clean well heated shower blocks with full facilities the staff are so helpful with directions to the train station etc 10 minute walk with regular service to wherever you want in London

Plenty of wild life in the woods it's lovely with squirrels birds and apparently foxes who like to steal your shoes if you leave them out - also it is a very secure site and you feel very safe

All in all could not fault anything and would recommend it to everyone visiting London in your caravan or motorhome or tent

We arrived back after midnight and felt safe walking back from the station and the site was securely locked with key coded access through a side gate

This is an excellent site well done

10/10 on every level. Pitches have a lot of space, close to the train station, friendly staff, great facilities.

Where else so close to London could you stay for £25 a night set in a wood with squirrels running about.

We've stayed here twice and I'd definitely go back

Not much else to say but I have to use up 300 characters to submit the review.

Spent five nights at Abbey Wood recently and it is an excellent site. Made feel welcome by the staff from the start and this continued throughout the holiday. The place is maintained to a very high standard and cannot be faulted. Train station within a mile and thereafter 30 mins to central London. Do not let the surrounding area put you off. It looks a bit run down however we walked from the station about midnight after a night in London and had no issues. The site is very secure and felt comfortable to leave van and car etc there while we were out. Although you are in London the site feels very rural once you are inside and is very peaceful with squirrels running about and green parrots flying above. Look out for the walk (about 20 mins) to the Abbey ruins as it is very nice and peaceful. All in all highly recommended site to do the London thing.

Fantastic site. Could not do enough to help. Great site for any one doing the London Marathon. Train station within a mile of the site and an easy walk. Great information room with loads of help about local shops and attractions that you can go to. Just up the road is a common which is great for walks and a great park and play area.
