    A lot depends on whether you are LEZ compliant. Can be very expensive otherwise. Check the TfL site if you're not sure. Think it's about £200 if you make a mistake!

    Have looked at the UKcampsite website but thought there might be something nearer to my destination?

    Define easy access? For example, somewhere in the suburbs with good rail links? Would that be any use?

    One just out side the LEZ. Zone is Apps Court Farm, a handy cycle ride from Hampton Court Station.

    The Caravan Club is our "go to" supplier for London. Abbey Woods has good rail connections to Waterloo.London Bridge etc and is a very "rural" site surrounded by high security fencing. Crystal Palace has a good bus link to Victoria and rail links via Clapham Junction and has good views over the park from some pitches.

    To save crossing the Thames, we sometimes use Commons Wood at Welwyn Garden City/Hatfield, which is semi-rural, flat with trees. It has a nearby busstop then rail to King's Cross OR a bus direct to Victoria (stopping at Swiss Cottage, I think).

    We have used Lea Valley once but that was "old", with flat, featureless grass. A bus journey takes you to a train station (can't remember which one) and there you are on the local network.

    Not surprisingly, there are not a range of options - Gordon

    Just raised this thread because it was @Carol who first made me aware of Apps Court Farm and now today I'm enjoying my first full day there. Gonna get the bikes out first and cycle to Hampton Court, or take the coach trip to Windsor. Decisions decisions......... Griff
