We Wish You A Merry Motorhoming Christmas
Motorhoming can be enjoyed at any time of the year, and Christmas is no exception. The Christmas holidays tempt many people to go away for a break over the festive period, and you don’t even need to stay in a hotel. Motorhome owners can enjoy the freedom to go where they like, when they like – so why not celebrate Christmas with a break in your motorhome, in the UK and abroad!
Campsites That Open over the Christmas Period
A surprising number of campsites stay open over Christmas and welcome families and couples for the festive period. People with motorhomes in Hampshire, Wiltshire and the surrounding counties could decide to stay at the Salisbury Camping and Caravanning Club Site, for example. This site is situated just one and a half miles from the centre of this historic city, although you might not realize this from the idyllic countryside location. A walk along the river takes you into Salisbury with its famous cathedral and all the amenities of this busy and fascinating area. The site is also within easy reach of family attractions such as Longleat and the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu.
Other sites also remain open over the Christmas period. Why not take your motorhome abroad and visit Spain for the Christmas holidays – perfect for catching some sun and enjoying Christmas abroad.
Visiting the Capital
A Christmas shopping break in London can be hectic and expensive, but if you travel in your motorhome you will find that even close to London camping at Christmas is the ideal solution. There are Caravan Club sites at Crystal Palace and Abbey Wood that are open all year round with all the facilities you might need for a break over the festive period. In addition to shopping, you will be able to enjoy all the advantages of the capital such as theatres, museums, exhibitions and special Christmas events.
From the Crystal Palace Caravan Club Site it is just a trip on the number 3 bus that runs from near the park to Oxford Street, travelling via Lambeth Bridge and passing through Trafalgar Square and Picadilly Circus. The service runs all night, so you will be able to return to the site even after a late night out at the theatre or a nightclub.
The Abbey Wood Caravan Club Site close to Greenwich is also located within easy reach of central London. It has good rail connections within walking distance, or you could take a river cruise to Tower Bridge or Westminster.
You can use motorhomes to also take advantage of the Christmas markets that are dotted around; in fact, motorhomes in Hampshire are often taken over the Channel to some of the famous continental markets.
The flexibility of a motorhome means that you can visit attractions in any location, camp close to friends and family or enjoy Christmas in a completely new location – the choices are endless.
