When you think of London, camping and campsites don’t immediately spring to mind, but there are a few within easy reach of the capital. Staying in one of these London campsites gives you the freedom to move around during your stay via the public transport links, and avoid having to navigate your way through central London.
Not to mention, they can be a much cheaper option than staying in a hotel!
make sure you read up on and are aware of all the potential road tolls and charges
The London Low Emission Zone (LEZ) is a traffic pollution charge scheme with the aim of reducing the exhaust gas emissions of diesel-powered commercial vehicles in London.
All motorhomes on the LandCruise Fleet meet the required emission standards.
In large towns and cities, you may come across Bus Lanes. They’re specific lanes that, on certain days and times, are restricted to buses only.
They are clearly marked by dashed white lines or a solid white line, and the words ‘BUS LANE’ written in massive letters on the road itself.
All bus lanes have blue signs indicating their times of operation and types of vehicle permitted. They can vary significantly from road to road, so be sure to take note before attempting to enter a bus lane, as doing so when not permitted may result in the issue of a Penalty Charge Notice.
The London Congestion Charge is an £11.50 daily charge for driving a vehicle within the charging zone between 07.00 and 18.00, Monday to Friday.
It does not apply on weekends, outside of the above times or on public & bank holidays.
Road signs and markings make it clear when you are about to enter or leave the charge zone. Failure to pay the charge will result in a penalty notice.You can pay the charge by telephone on 0343 222 2222, or by visiting the Transport for London website.
Any vehicle using the Dartford toll crossing will need to make a payment, known as the Dart Charge.
This must be paid whether you are crossing the Thames via the Dartford Tunnel or Queen Elizabeth II Bridge.
You can pay for the crossing in advance or by midnight the day after, by calling 0300 300 0120, or online.
The cost of a single crossing in a motorhome is £2.50. Charges apply between 6am and 10pm every day, including Christmas and other bank holidays. Non, or late, payment will result in a £70 fine.
