When people mention London the first thing that comes to mind is the sprawling expanse of London, with its busy metro and crowded streets. However, glampers may be surprised to find that just outside of London there is a veritable range of summer camping options which are not only within traveling distance to London but provide access to some of the most beautiful countryside in Southern England. From a relaxing rural campsite head out to explore some of the charming local villages such as Royal Tunbridge Wells, which is famous for housing the Jeweller of the Queen. From there it's easy to visit the South Downs National Park or the Kent dows where there is a range of trails and paths that take visitors through emerald hills or bike on quiet country lanes. A totally different camping experience near London!
