    We have plans to go to London and all our previous trips have resulted in many hours of trying to find a quiet wild camping site. We don't want anything special, just somewhere where we can blend in with the district and not be noticed. To be near a tube station would be even better. Any help would be wonderful.

    We got turfed out of the forest, however if you park up on the road between Theydon Bois green we used to park there regular when still at work, and its near the tube

    or try the village hall car park

    The Theydon Bois village hall car park takes a large mobile book van and I have parked my RV there when attending events... no barrier and it is quite most of the time..caretaker not about much. Or a liitle bit up the road towards the roundabout London to Epping Road there are one or two parking places on the right hand side just in to the forest and you may get away with it for a while.

    or drop down in to Chingford near the station you will find a few places.. the Chingford line (start opf the line) ... (main line runs in to Liverpool St Station)
