When thinking about a caravan holiday, your first inclination might be to pitch up by the sea, while a countryside locale may also come to mind.
This summer the Caravan and Motorhome Club (CAMC) is suggesting you take your camping gear to a city location for a different type of getaway.
It insists that this sort of holiday is compatible with the metropolitan experience, allowing you to enjoy the great outdoors, alongside iconic sights, shopping and nightlife.
At present, the CAMC currently has availability in the following city sites:
Crystal Palace – pitch up in your caravan, motorhome, campervan or tent and take the number three bus directly to Brixton, Lambeth Bridge, Trafalgar Square or Oxford Street.
Alderstead Heath – surrounded by rolling hills and woodland, you’d be forgiven for forgetting this site is close to the M25 for easy access into London.
Abbey Wood – the attractions of Greenwich can be found on the doorstep of this caravan park, while central London is just a 35-minute train journey away.
Commons Wood – stay in your motorhome in Hertfordshire and breeze into London via King’s Cross in half an hour.
Burrs Country Park – take advantage of Manchester’s extensive tram network and reach the city from the tranquil countryside in 30 minutes.
Strathclyde – the city centre attractions of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Stirling are all less than an hour’s drive from this family-friendly site situated in picturesque parkland.
Harvey Alexander, director of marketing at the Caravan and Motorhome Club, told CaravanTimes: “For those visitors to London in particular, we offer a great cost effective option to explore our vibrant capital city.
“However many activities our guests decide to pack into their day, they can be safe in the knowledge that they have their own unit waiting for them in the tranquillity of one of our campsites.
“Also with campsite prices starting at just over £15 per night, we offer a very cost effective way to explore. What is saved on accommodation, can be splashed out as extra spending money!”
