Visiting London in a Motorhome

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!

Where to visit

You don’t need us to tell you about all the incredible places to visit in London (though we will). You will never be short of things to do and places to see, including the Olympic Park, the London Eye, you could travel up to the top of Europe’s tallest building, the Shard, not to mention all the amazing museums and galleries. There really is something for everyone.

Driving in London

When driving in and around London you need to be aware of a couple of tolls and charges that you may be eligible for depending on your route/destination.

London low emission sign road signLow Emission Zone – 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.

London Congestion Zone roadsign

Congestion Charge – The 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.

The charge aims to reduce high traffic flow and pollution in the central area and raise investment funds for London’s transport system.

Dartford crossing road signDartford Crossing – The Dartford Crossing is a toll road on the M25 that consists of two tunnels (carrying northbound traffic) and the Queen Elizabeth II bridge (carrying southbound traffic).

The way that you pay for the Dartford crossing has now changed. You no longer pay at the barriers as you go through, instead you must pay for a crossing in advance or by midnight the day after by making a one-off payment. More info
