General

  • Wildlife haven with easy access to London
  • Close to whitewater rafting, bike and walking paths
  • London travel cards available to buy

In a wildlife haven among the traffic-free trails of the 1,000-acre River Lee Country Park – and all only 40 minutes by train from central London: have a stay at Greater London's Lee Valley Campsite, Sewardstone to escape the city for a weekend, or to use the site as a nifty rural base for getting into the urban for day trips. (Either way, do take quite a bit of time to get around the country park for ambling, pedalling and wildlife watching among its rare resident species).

Lee Valley Campsite has a play area, a shop selling essentials and one-day travel cards for London, a launderette with ironing facilities, and heated showers and toilet blocks. Dogs are welcome.

The site also has free wifi – just the ticket when researching which museum or shopping area to get to in London first...?

    Rubbish bins were clean and tidy but contents were random - more labelling needed - but this is not under control of campsite. Instructions worked for free Lee Valley Wifi, but instructions for campsite Wifi did not work.

Excellent site with clean facilities, friendly staff and level pitches10/11/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

  • Fully-serviced hardstanding touring pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The friendliness of the reception staff, who was very patient with my endless questions (first time out in our motorhome). We had a slight issue with the electric hook up, but was solved by plugging into a different pitch.
    Facilities were good and the site was very secure.

    Disliked: 

    Getting very wet in the rain trying to establish out how the electric worked only to find out it was a faulty EHU point. This was due largely to it being our first time and lack of experience.
