Hi

C&CC Chertsey is outside the zone, short drive from M25 (west side), it's a bit of a hike into central london. CC Gatwick south of the M25, a bit noisy! But 35 mins from Victoria on the train from Gatwick Station( 10 mins on the bus or short taxi trip). Not sure whether the Lea valley sites are in the LEZ, on "your" side of London, though!

I take it you have checked your reg no. online to be sure you're not compliant?

What about the CC site at Welwyn Gdn City. Not too far from the station. Certainly outside the LEZ.

If you check and find that you are compliant with the LEZ then my favourite is Crystal Palace CC site. One bus to the West End. No. 3 stops on Crystal Palace Parade and takes about 30 mins to Trafalgar Square, Picadilly Circus and Oxford St.

All the best, Gary.

some of the lee valley ones are inside the lez, some are outside, the newly refurb one at dobbs weir is OK, and easy to cycle to the station.

Some it depends on which motorway you are coming down to us by.

I would also look at henlow lakes, its not far to the station which gives easy access to London.

Aldborough Hall Farm CL - We've stayed in it twice.
Well priced at Ģ10 a night, 15-20 minute walk to tube station and nice restaurant next door to the site.

Nice owner. Lots of peacocks on site - they like to sit (and ****) on your rooflights - first time I've ever looked up at the underbelly of a peacock from inside the van!
