Hi All

My eldest is 16 in June and would like to go to London to watch Billy Elliot, my question is has anyone stayed at the above site or indeed anyother site, It is more important to me to have easy route there with the van than proximity to west end if you know what I mean, as will get London transport in !!

Thanks in advance

Tina,

Abbey Wood is a good site and has easy access into london, you can either get the bus outside the site or can take a 5 minute walk to the train station. From what I remember we had no trouble getting there with the caravan either, I suppose it depends where you are coming from.

Hi Gill

Thanks for your reply, We are coming from the north west,and still quite novice towers(about 6 or 7 outings so far!)so the easier the better,!

Tina,

We stayed at Crystal Palace five years ago - busses go from just down the road all the way into central London making it a sight seeing trip in itself. Caravan Club directions to site very accurate. Stunned our daughter visiting from north London with almost yard by yard instructions for the last mile or so. Even so we only averaged eleven miles per hour for the last hour so allow for that ( That is no faster than it was in the early 1900's I'm told )

We have also stayed at Lee Valley Campsite, Sewardstone Road, Chingford, London, EN11 0BZ ( 020 8528 5689 ) when visiting north London - bus leaves from the site entrance in season or about a mile down the road otherwise ( which makes for a bit of a dodgy walk back at night ) then connects with the underground for central London. Adequate site though not quite C.C.

Hope this is of help

Tina, if you decide to stay at the Abbey Wood site please reply, I work quite close to the site and can give precise instructions on how to get there. I assume that travelling from the north that you would cross the river at Dartford, it's very straightforward.

CC site at Abbey Wood gets my vote, its easy to get to any whilst not the prettiest part of London but its very safe at the site and we did all the usual tourist stuff over easter two years ago, hectic but good fun. Overground / inderground only a short walk tickets from the wardens etc no fuss no hassle.

Hi

Cannot vouch for Abbeywood or C Palace.

When we visit London we use Commons Wood trains from Welwyn G C and Hatfield. We found parking easier at WGC near the library.

Station is in the shopping centre itself. Also had a good day at St Albans. Site easy from A1,Ascots Lane easy to miss but site next to Hospital so easy to find from anywhere if out for the day ie follow signs to Hospital
