The Camping and Caravanning Club has announced that it has teamed up with Gravesham Borough Council to offer two campsites within easy reach of the Olympic stadium from July 20 – August 16, 2012. The sites will be located at the Gravesend/ Old Gravesendians Rugby Clubs (around 250 pitches) and at Culverstone Recreation Ground.


Both of the campsites are close to Ebbsfleet International Station, which will allow you to reach Stratford in London (for the Olympic Park and Olympic Stadium) in around 10 minutes.


A pitch will cost from £30 per night, based on a minimum of three nights’ stay. You’ll need to register your interest early to be able to stay: to do so, visit from January 17. Telephone booking lines for both members and non-members open from March 2011.


The Caravan Club has also said that it will make provision for temporary campsites during the Olympics – members should look out for details in the Caravan Club magazine for information in due course; alternatively, visit the Club’s website at for all the latest news.
