Looking for Vw Campers for sale in London? Then read on… There comes a time in every VW camper’s life when it just has to check out our fine capital. Decent hotels London are extortionate, so it makes perfect sense to hit up London with your own creature comforts in tow.

Shopping for a second-hand VW van
If you are heading on a break to find VW campers for sale in London, you’re likely to find a wide range of choices but remember: everything’s more expensive in the capital. You’ll have the pick of VW campervans for sale in London, but you might be paying way over the odds.
So you could head further afield: we’re based in Lancashire and we get a lot of customers from the Big Smoke heading north to get more VW bang for their buck. From split screens to bay windows, cabinetry to upholstery, we’ve got years of experience matching people up with their perfect mate. Plus we offer a ‘3-2-1 Options’ programme for campers and payments, so that you can create a van and a plan that suits you down to the ground.
Finding a place to park your VW camper overnight in London isn’t the easiest task. But if you take time to do your research, you can find a spot which lands you in decent proximity to the sights of London without getting caught up in the smoggy congestion for which the capital is famed.
We’ve done a little of the legwork for you and asked our customers if they have any hot tips. We were told that, for friendly staff, decent connections to the city and great facilities, Lee Valley Camping and Caravan Park is up there with the best choices.
Based in Edmonton in East London, Lee Valley is a stone’s throw from the vast expanse of water in William Girling Reservoir. There’s a considerable amount of green space nearby, something that’s not always so easy to track down in London. There’s a bus stop right outside the campsite that’ll take you pretty much anywhere you need to go. So just park up, buy a travelcard and get ready to take in the sights.
This is a common question for those visiting London in their VW campervan. Where does the congestion charge apply? How much is it? Am I going to get stung without realising? The good news is, if you’re taking up our tip of staying at Lee Valley, you can avoid the congestion charge all together.
However, if you take your VW campervan into Central London between 07:00 and 18:00, Monday to Friday, you’ll need to pay a charge of £11.50 a day. You can pay this in advance if it makes your life easier. You can pay the day after but you’ll pay a slightly higher rate of £14. The only way you’re going to get stung is if you don’t pay up at all; the charge for avoiding congestion charge payments all together is a hefty £130.
We hope you enjoy introducing your camper to the great sights of London. If you don’t have a camper yet, why not consider Eric, our flagship VW camper for hire? You can pick him up from us and pootle on down for an exciting weekend exploring London in style.
We can’t think of a better way to spend your time.
