    Good Day Folks.

    My club Everton FC are at Wembley again this year in the FA Cup Semi Final. I know there are two sites in London but I'm not sure where they are.

    Can anybody tell me what would be the best site to be on for getting into Wembley. The KO is at lunchtime on the Saturday.

    Cheers
    Jim

    Crystal Palace

    The Crystal Palace site is not far from where the buses are .. so there is good travel links in to the capital.... a short bus rid gets you to lots of trains in t London and the tube network. So if you are late coming back you will get back OK... even has night buses.... I would allow about an hour to hour and half even for the relatively short journey .. as it is a case of crossing London almost from 5 o'clock to 11 o'clock but the five o'clock being near to the centre than Abbey Wood which is a fair way over off the A2 side of London.

    Crystal Palace is inside the LEZ if you are a diesel.

    There is a very nice C&CC site at Hertford. Within walking distance of Hertford North station which has a straight forward route to Wembly. Check it out see what you think. The site is only a mile from the A10.:thumb:

    Bearstead Caravan Club in Maidstone is a really nice site and a train from there to Wembley stadium costs £42.60 return for two people, hope this helps and hope you win:thumb: see you at the final:thumb:

    We stayed on the Lee Valley site when Barnsley were in the semi final. Easy to get to Wembley from there.

    I have a 4 day show to attend at London's ExCel next year. Are there any sites providing easy access or perhaps a cheap hotel break would be better?

    No sites near by

    While there are sites... Excel is inside the LEZ .. You will do better either going to say Abbey Wood .. Nearest and cheapest in to the area of Excell... Or using a hotel a bit out and travel in.

    Tunbridge Well to London by train peek time this week was £37.70 Covered the inner zone in London... So it is fine camping way out but the getting in can be expensive.
