Blackheath Rugby Camping near the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics – SE London

Blackheath Rugby is superbly located in South East London, in close proximity to several major Olympic and Paralympic venues; all within easy access via public transport (or even a walk).
This lively site is perfect for ticket holders and volunteers who want to be at the heart of the games to soak up the Olympic fever! Welcome to urban camping…
Blackheath Rugby was the first independent rugby club to be founded in South East England and it’s development is as old as the sport of rugby! A pioneer in rugby since 1858, Blackheath Rugby has gone from strength to strength, moving from it’s original ground on the Heath to the Rectory, and now it also has it’s own dedicated training area at Well Hall, where this fabulous site will be based! Home to over 20 teams ranging from under 6 right through to semi professional senior rugby, the clubhouse is always busy and the atmosphere is not to be missed!
Pederson, North Yorkshire
The site was well organised with everything we needed on site. Those who were manning the site were friendly and very helpful with directions to/from london sites. They provided 24 hour security and the facilities were kept well stocked.
With very easy access to all the london venues it was a very good place to stay.
Blackheath Rugby is extremely excited about the forthcoming games and cannot wait to open it’s gates and welcome some Olympics and Paralympics visitors.

Fran Cotton, Director of Rugby at Blackheath Rugby comments; “We are delighted to be hosting a campsite during London 2012, aside from the Olympic Park we are only a stones throw away from Greenwich Park, North Greenwich Arena, The Royal Artillery Barracks (shooting) and the Excel Centre, so taking part in Camping At The Games was a no brainer for us! Aside from rugby our training ground at Well Hall is home to a number of other local sports teams and we are keen to develop our facilities to help to accommodate these clubs and grow grass root sport as best we can!”


  1. jefry says:

    we want to know if there is place in the camping, and if we can book now.

    Also we need the size of the pitches.


  2. Hi there,

    Pitch sizes are roomy and we have based them on an average tent size of 4mx4m which is quite a large tent.

  3. emily says:

    hi ,
    I have a few queries that i’m hoping you can help me with. Firstly what is the minimum number of nights that I can stay? Will there be any transport links running for me to get to my 6:30am start in Greenwich park? And would it be the same charge for my friend who isn’t a gamesmaker to stay in a tent with me ?


  4. Hi Emily,

    There is no minimum stay unless you select flexi-camp which enables you to get a full refund on any nights you no longer require once you know your shifts and the minimum stay for this 7 nights.

    The cost for your friend to stay is the same, £10 per night but she does not qualify for flexi-camp as this is for Games Makers.

    The tubes will be running from 4am during the Olympics so you will be able to get to Greenwich Park at this time, thanks for your enquiry.

  5. Keith Barker says:

    I am booked in at blackheath and looking forward to the site. I hope that the gamesmakers are together and that there is a quiet area as we will to sleep well as there are very early shifts.
    Thank you,

  6. Hi Keith,

    Yes there will be a specific area for GM’s.

  7. Sue says:

    I am a Gamesmaker working at the Paralympic Equestrian event. How far is the car park away from the campsite? Can I sleep in my car?

  8. Alan says:

    How far is the Blackheath site from Greenwich Park please?
    I have read an earlier reply which mentions tubes running from 4 am. Is the site close to a tube station? I have 6.30 am shifts. Thank you

  9. Jennifer says:

    hello, just a quick question will there be lockers or somewhere to store things like phones etc securely when we leeave site to go on shift

  10. Jennifer says:

    me again!
    I know others have asked but is there any update on opening the campsites earlier in august my first shift is on the 23rd and at the moment i wont be able to be there!!

  11. Hi Jennifer,

    Thanks for your query, we are still reviewing the date but should have an answer very soon, have you completed the online poll

  12. Hi Jennifer,

    Unfortunately there will not be lockers on site, there will be 24 hour security but I would suggest taking things like phones and wallets with you. Thanks.

  13. Hi Alan,

    Both the nearest tube and bus stop are approx a 5 minute walk and details on times from camps to venues are here

  14. Hi Sue,

    Unfortunately you are not permitted to sleep in your vehicles, the car park is almost by pitch side, so not far.

  15. Matthew Turner says:

    Several of my shifts finish at 1AM in the Olympic park for the Paralympics, i’ve booked onto the Blackheath site. i’m presuming i will be ok entering the campsite after these shifts, is that a correct presumption?

  16. Rhian says:

    Hi, I’ve just booked a pre erected tent for the games, and just wanted to know whether an inflatable mattress is provided with this, or whether we need to bring our own. Many thanks.

  17. Hi Rhian,

    The pre-erected tent comes as it is without the mattress so yhou are free to use the space as you like, thanks.

  18. Hi Matthew,

    Yes that won’t be a problem there will be 24 hour security on site so access will be available.

  19. Michele says:

    Hi, I am travelling to London with my daugher for the duration of the games. As ye we haven’t been able to get tickets to any events. Our plan is to travel from a campsite to Hydepark or Victoria park to watch the games on the big screens etc.
    Can you let me know how long the travelling time is on the tube to central London from Blackheath campsite and would I be more suited to one of the other campsites listed?
    Many thanks

  20. Hi Michelle,

    Surbiton is slightly closer so I would suggest staying here, although check out the link below and it will give you a good idea of how far places are from the site. If you haven’t got tickets Surbiton is also only 10 mins cycle ride from Hampton Court Palace where the time trials are taking place, which are not ticketed. Also if you play hockey there will be plenty going on at Surbiton!

  21. Dennis says:

    hi i’m voluntering for the games and looking for a campsite.
    I’ll be posted in the olympic stadium so transport late night is vital. also easy acces to an airport would be great as i’m flying in from Holland.
    To keep home updated is wifi and security lockers somewhere availible?
    please advice
    No shifts in yet.


  22. Hi Dennis,

    Eton Manor is only 10 minutes via tube to the Olympic Park and is easily accessble via public transport if you are flying in. Wifi access will be available on site, but unfortunately lockers we cannot provide lockers. There will be 24 hour security, however I would not advise leaving valuables ion the tents.

  23. Aaron says:

    Hi, I am interested in booking a camping space at Blackheath Ruby for a total of 35 nights over both the Olympics and Paralympics as I am a Gamesmaker at Greenwich park. My first shift is the 23rd of July for the Olympics and the 25th of August for the Paralympics so I was just wondering if the campsite would be available to Gamesmakers who have shifts earlier than the campsite dates listed on website?

    Many thanks

  24. Pip says:


    I’m a gamesmaker and looking at Blackheath RFC campsite. Can you tell me
    a) how big the site is
    b)no of toilets/showers and are they communal
    c) I have noticed some Olympic sites you are not allowed to take food onto the site – it has to be bought onsite. What is Blackheath’s policy?

  25. Hi Aaron,

    Unfortunately Blackheath is only open from the 26th July for the Olympics and from the 28th August for the Paralympics. However the Matchday Centres in Walthamstow is open from the 16th July, it’s not in the best spot for Greenwich Park but it is certainly in commutable distance for a few days.

    We are still working on potentially opening a site prior to the Paralympics and will keep our website and FB page updated, have you completed our online poll?

  26. Yasmin says:

    I am a gamesmaker for the paralympic games from the 26th aug-04 sep .. it is at greenwich park which do you think would be the best campsite? and what would you say is the best deal?

  27. Kerry says:

    Hi i am looking to stay at this campsite during the olympics, my shifts start on the 27th July till 7th August, i was just wondering if we can use a trailer tent and if there is any electric hook up?


  28. Anonymous says:

    Do any sites accept caravans? we are looking at bringing down our caravan and was hoping to stay somewhere centrally or at least quite close to the action!

  29. Unfortunately under the terms of the Permitted Development Act we cannot accommodate our caravans, motorhomes or trailer tents at our sites. We do offer a 4 man pre-erected tent at an extra charge though all of which is bookable through the site.

    Thanks for your query, let me know if you have any other problems.

  30. Hi Kerry,

    Unfortunately we cannot permit caravans, trailer tents or motorhomes, we do offer 4xman pre-erected tents at an extra costs though which are all bookable through the sites. Let us know if we have any other problems.

  31. Lisa Chadwick says:

    Gamesmaker volunteer based at park lane. Which is the best place to camp for shifts starting at 6 am. Not a londoner so struggling with locations. Cheers.

  32. Hi Lisa,

    Surbiton HC is the closest to Central London, check out this blog for details on travel Thnaks

  33. Hi Yasmin,

    Check out our interactive map for details on how close sites are to venues, The best site is Blackheath but unfortunately it doesn’t open until the 28th August. We are trying to establish demand for earlier dates so if you could complete this online poll it would be really useful

  34. Sian says:

    I’m not a local Londoner and am struggling with locations!!! I’m a volunteer during the games and will be based in Wembley arena!!! Desperately trying to avoid the costs of a hotel!! Which is the closest campsite to Wembley?? Would there be plenty of public transport available to me to accommodate early and late shifts??

  35. Georgie Ballard says:

    I am Gamesmaker volunteer at the Paralympics on the transport team in the athletes village. Which campsite would be the best, my shifts are from 23rd Aug to 12th Sept.

  36. Hi, Barking RFC or Eton Manor are the best 2 for you. Both great. Check them out and book soon as space is running out.

  37. Wembley is the trickiest location for us too. Check out our guide of times from campsites to venues: Depending on your shift times you’re probably better off being at one of the campsites near a tube rather than mainline rail….

    Also check out TFL for routes and times.

  38. The site will have about 150 pitches. The number of toilets and showers eventually provided will depend on the numbers of people who eventually book – so, enough! Showers are communal, toilets are not! Yes, you can bring your own food and cook on a camp stove.

  39. Adam Gillibrand says:

    Is there likely to be anywhere nearer than Walthamstow open earlier than the 26th July? I have shifts on the 24th and 25th in the Volleyball training venue (Dartford) and am booked on Blackheath from the 26th. Also, from what time can we access Blackheath on the 26th as I am working a 2.45-10.15pm shift that day.

    Many thanks, Adam

  40. Yes Match Day Centres in Walthamstow is open from the 16th July As it’s the first day you will be able to check into Blackheath from 9.00am, thanks.

  41. Swamy says:

    Hey…this sounds cool. I am a writer attending the Games…I want to experience the camp for a couple of day…how does that work? I am also planning to book a homestay and I want to try camping for a couple of days….should make for a great experience…any suggestions???

  42. niki Hurrell Head says:

    I will be based at Olympic park and my partner will be
    based at Erles court. some of our shifts finish at 0300.
    Can you suggest the best campsite please.

  43. You will really need one which is on a tube line so or night bus area so we suggest Barking or Eton Manor

  44. Yes, book in at any one of our campsites and soak up the experience – all are great, it all depends on what else you are doing at the time.

  45. Katrina says:

    How far is the excel centre from the blackheath campsite? I’m a gamesmaker at the Paralympics until the 8th September and some of my shifts end at midnight/ 1 am.

  46. Hi Katrina, We have a guide to how long it takes to commute by Public transport to and from venues and campsites:

    Hope that helps.

  47. catherine says:

    Im all booked in with the campsite, please can you provide me with some details of the nearest tube/train station as im looking at planning my journey to and from my event. Im volunteering at the volleyball in earls court… im hoping this is one of the closest campsites!

  48. Craig says:

    Hi my names craig Im going to be working security during the olympics but I dont come from London and dont want to pay the extortionate costs of a hostel or hotel, would I be able to stay for around 2 weeks with the option to renew or is there a maximum period you can stay? thanks

  49. Emma says:

    Is there any restrictions on when you can arrive and leave the site?

    I have 5 nights booked is there a set arrival time for your first night and do you have to vacate your pitch by a certain time after your last night?

    My last shift finishes at 2pm and I’m trying to work out if I need to pack my car before it starts or can vacate after it finishes

  50. John Jones says:


    me and a few o my mates looking to come to the Olympics, haven’t got any tickets just coming to soak up the atmosphere and free venue sports.

    Not sure where is the best place for us to camp, we are all between 20-25 years old, looking for somewhere with a bit of night entertainment, were would you suggest?


  51. All of the clubhouses will have a bar and various evening entertainment but the best sites for Central London where all the free events are taking place are Blackheath, Surbiton and Barking RFC. Surbiton is also in walking distance of the time trials at Hampton Court which are also non-ticketed. I hope this helps!

  52. Check in is from 12pm onwards, and providing you arrive by 10pm that’s fine. As for check out your tent needs to be taken down by 11am, but you can leave this in your car as vehicles do not need to be vacated until 11pm, failing that I’m sure the clubhouse would store the tent for you, many thanks.

  53. There is now limited stay providing the site is open on the dates you have booked, many thanks.

  54. Tims says:

    What kind of breakfasts will we be able to purchase on site, are we just talking cooked breakfast or does this include cereal? What time will the catering facilities be operating? Bearing in mind some of us will have shifts from 5.30am, and we’d have to leave an hour before this, and returning after 12 or 1am.

    Glad to hear the Games Maker volunteers will be located in a quieter area to get some sleep after long days of weird timed shifts!

    Thanks, TS

  55. Breakfast will be served from 6am onwards and will most likely consist of various breakfast roles, unfortunately we cannot realistically open up the kitchens any sooner. hot snacks will also be available in the evening up until 9/10pm depending on demand. Blackheath is also located near to co-op and other food stores.

  56. Anonymous says:

    What’s the closest tube station?

  57. hayley says:

    im a lone traveler to be a gamesmaker in excel and greenwich park, which area would be more suitable please? also is there extra charge for parking? is it safe for females alone? thank you

  58. Paul Parker says:

    We are travelling down from the Northwest to work for Locog during both Olympics and Paralympics, our contract is from 16th July to 9th September. willl the campsite be open for these periods please???

  59. Hi, the nearest rail station is Eltham and there is a bus stop on Westhorne Avenue, there will be buses running all night.

    All routes from here can be found on the Transport for London website.

    Thanks for your comment.

  60. Hi, the opening dates for Blackheath Rugby Camping are from the 26/07-13/08 and the 28/08-10/09. Thanks for the comment, hope this info helps.

  61. Blackheath or Eton Manor are the closest campsites to your venues, however Eton Manor is unavailable on the 3rd and 4th of August. Sorry for any inconvenience, thanks for your comment.

  62. Judy Wykes says:

    I am a lone female watching several days at the North Greenwich Arena – do you feel camping and Blackheath will be safe for someone travelling alone. Are there still pitches available for is it full?

  63. Yes there will be 24 hour security on site and a number of other females camping. We still have space but it is filling up fast so I would advise booking asap, thanks!

  64. Anonymous says:

    My shifts start on the 23rd July, do you know if Blackheath Campsite is going to be opening early yet?


  65. Unfortunately as it stands it does not look like Blackheath will be opening early. Keep checking the Facebook page and Twitter account though! Just in case!

  66. Lisa says:

    Hello, we’re thinking of camping at Blackheath RFC during the Olympics – since there are food and drink outlets at the rugby club, is it allowed to bring your own food and drink onto the campsite? Are BBQs allowed?

  67. Lee Fergusson says:

    I am booked at Blackheath from 28 Aug to 9 Sept and will be working as a Gamesmaker at Woolwich. I notice that your maximum tent size is 4m x 4m and my tent is 4.7 x 2.55. My tent’s footprint is less than 16m squared, but as it is longer than 4m will I need to pay the additional £5 per day charge?
    Also, as I am working as a London Ambassador at Heathrow for the week prior to coming over to Eltham, although I understand the camp site will be closed during that time, would I be permitted to leave my car somewhere at the site during that closed period?
    Thanks for your advice.

  68. Hi Lee,
    Your tent size is fine without needing to pay the additional charge. However, you would have to enquire at the site as to whether you could leave your car for a week before, as I am unsure of what events they have going on before they start the camping. Further to this, you would be leaving your car there at your own risk anyway, sorry for any inconvenience caused by this.

  69. Jess Jennings-Bland says:

    Im a games maker at the paralympics at the royal artillery barracks, some of my shifts start at 6am, do the trains run earlier during the paralympics as well?


  70. No unfortunately we cannot allow you to cook your own food on site, sorry for any inconvenience caused.

  71. Greg says:

    Eeek! I thought that it was just BBQ’s that were not allowed! Does this mean that the clubhouse will be open for people to get cups of tea if they are on the early 6.00am shifts as opposed to brewing up on a camping stove?

  72. MikeW says:


    I’m booked at Blackheath on opening day (26th July) but my shift starts at 7:45.

    Will I be able to park my car here until I can get back to pitch the tent later on?

    If parking at 7am is too early, what *is* the earliest time I can eave the car?

  73. MikeW says:

    Further up the comments, you mentioned that we *could* cook on a camp stove. I recall seeing a comment elsewhere that we couldn’t BBQ but a camp stove was OK.

  74. Hi Mike,
    Sorry that was a mistake on our part! You can use small camping stoves but no BBQ.

  75. It is just BBQ not allowed Greg, sorry for the confusion!

  76. Hi Mike,
    Yes that will be fine, please just let the campsite know upon your arrival that that is what you intend to do, hope this helps!

  77. steph mcfarland says:


    we have booked from 5/9 to 9/9 but we would like to add the 4th onto this? would this please be possible, can you advise?

  78. Hi Jess, please refer to (Transport for London) but I believe they do yes, hope this helps!

  79. Lee Fergusson says:


    There are buses that will get you there on time every day except Sunday, when a nice walk through the leafy suburbs will take you about 40 minutes!!
    I, too, am working in the same place with the same early starts and have worn out the Transport for London web site trying different routes etc.
    Our site manager may have a solution for us – they will have had lots of experience during the Olympics.
    See you in August!!

  80. Jonny Dearden says:

    Would it be possible to store a bicycle at this venue?

  81. MikeW says:

    There’ll be someone there that early, to be able to talk to? Impressive!

    Had my training at site today… It’s getting close ;-)

  82. MikeW says:

    I did site training there today (for Olympics though), and the venue manager acknowledged that RAB was an “early-day site” and that provision of early morning transport by TFL wasn’t what they’d hoped for — particularly on Sundays.

    They know they might need to adjust some of the earliest shifts to cope. I’m considering my bike!

  83. Luc says:


    We have tickets for the hockey in the olympic park on sunday 29/07. We will come to London with a little campervan.
    Can we park our car on the parking( we don’t need any other facilitys).
    We want to pay as well as the other campers.


    Luc & Joris

  84. Greg says:


  85. Hi Luc, Unfortunately all our campsites are tent only, and you are not allowed to sleep in anything other than a tent on site, sorry for any inconvenience caused.

  86. Hi Mike, yes there is a 24hr presence on site :)

  87. Sarah says:

    Hi, I’m a Gamesmaker based at Greenwich park and have booked to stay at Blackheath from 26th July – 13th August. I am camping with some other gamesmakers and have just discovered that the tent I am using is 4.5m long, one of the people I am camping with has a 3m tent. Is it ok if my tent over hangs into her area slightly? Thank you, Sarah :o )

  88. There will be secure rails as long as you have a lock you are comfortable using. Obviously all bikes are locked and left at the owners risk!

  89. Please give us a call in the office and we’ll sort this out for you!

  90. Yes that is fine, no worries!

  91. Luc says:


    So when we bring a tent and sleep in it we can park our campervan on the parking ? (We’ll have 2 bicycles in the campervan).

    Thank you for the answer,

    Luc & Joris

  92. Hi Luc, yes that would be fine, hope you have a good time!

  93. jonatan says:

    hello a question we are not volunteers or anything related to the Olympic Games can also use the camp site or is reserved only for people going to work in games?

  94. Andrew says:

    hello. i we are not volunteers or anything related to the olympic games. we are just coming to London for tourism from Barcelona. Can we also book on one of your campings?

  95. Yes of course! More the merrier :)

  96. No reservations, everybody can book with us!

  97. Sarah says:

    Also, is it possible to get a tesco food delivery delivered to the campsite?

  98. Moryskova says:

    We are from Czech Republic and want to make a reservation in your camp for a few days. But I like to ask you for a two questions.
    Is there in the camp some place or save, where can we put our notebooks (etc.) during the day ? or if exist something like this close to the venues ?
    And the second thing, I found on the websites, that check in is at 12 o’clock, but we arrive to London at 6 in the morning at have tickets on gymnastics artistics, which begin at 11. Is possible to come earlier ?
    Thanks for you answer

    Czech Republic

  99. Hi Anet, Yes that would be fine to arrive early, don’t worry! Unfortunately, during the day all valuables are your own responsibility; there are lockers in Westfield Stratford, and various tube stations, hope this helps.

  100. Frank Towers says:

    Hi am thinking of staying at blackheath rugby club camping. Can you tell me is there any discounts for booking a week as opposed to just booking specific days?
    It will be for just one person most of the time but family will be joining later in the week, is it possible to pay for the extra persons when they arrive?
    Thanks Frank

  101. Greg says:


    Will there be a freezer in the clubhouse where we can freeze coolbox packs please?

  102. gemma says:

    hi i’m travfelling down on train for games do any of the parks have luggage/tent storage as we cant take anything into the olympic park?

  103. I’m afraid not sorry!

  104. No discounts available for group bookings or lengthy stays sorry! And all payment has to be taken upfront actually Frank.

  105. Jane says:

    Hi, I have a question, is it possible to cancel our order to you camp, we paid it but we have some problem, we can not come.
    Thank you

  106. Hi Jane, yes please email us on and outline your request to me there.

  107. Hi Gemma, unfortunately not, but there are lockers available in Westfield Stratford and tube stations across the city.

  108. Brian says:

    I want to bring my own tent from 26 till 1 Aug (6 nights)but during these 6 nights a different number of people will be staying, ranging from 1 person to 2 to three people staying on one night.How do I go about booking the different people in?

  109. Shaun Day says:

    Hi folks, we are working as stewards/security at the Embankment over the period of the games,,,,, we have booked and paid for a pitch there at your Rugby Club, but wondered if we could arrive on the afternoon of the 25th as we have to be be at the station early morning on the 26th to start our shifts…. we would not require any services just a place to rest our heads before the games begin in earnest…. If not we will attempt to seek alternative arrangements for that night. Many Thanks, look forward to seeing you all

  110. Rhian James says:


    Just asking. A friend has booked a pre erected tent. A friend and I have now decided to join her in the tent. How can we put our names forward to the campsite and pay for our place.

  111. Anonymous says:

    Hi there,
    My partner and I am looking for a place to stay close to the Olympic park and Victoria Park for events, on the 11th August until the 12th August, and will be travelling by public transport however on google maps and journey planner it says it takes 50 mins from here to the olympic park but on the wenbsite it says you can walk, could you please give me directions or tube routes? Also how long will it take to get from kings cross station to here by public transport?

  112. is the place to go for travel enquiries, and do you mean our website says you can walk? The only venue we suggest walking to from Blackheath on the website is the Royal Artillery Barracks. All other journey times are estimated through public transport. I suggest Wadham Lodge Sports Ground- Match Day Centres as an alternative for you and your husband.

  113. Hi Brian, each person has to have an arrival date, and a departure date. If their arrival and departure dates are the same they can book together, however, if they differ they must make separate bookings.

  114. Hi Shaun, sorry for the delayed response, been very busy here this week, do you still require a booking amendment?

  115. Hi, just make bookings yourselves (it will seem as if you’re booking another pitch but bear with me) then when you get to the ‘instructions’ section please quote your friends booking reference, then we shall know you are in her tent, thanks!

  116. Hi Derek, unfortunately if the website won’t let you book, the campsite is fully booked.

    Hi, Im camping at Blackheath during the Paralympics, and my base is Woolwich. I have 6am starts. i enjoy walking-does anyone know if its a nice safe walk and how long it takes at a steady walking pace? Thanks

    Hi Jess, Im camping at Blackheath aswell and am at the Royal Artillery Barracks too. My shifts also start at 6 and was thinking of walking or bussing to and from.

    I am starting work at RAB for the paralympics archery from 23rd August.
    Is Blackheath or any of your sites open from that date?


  120. Hi Sarah, it should take about 40-50 minutes to walk that distance, concerning safety I am unaware, you would have to enquire to the local authority.

    I came to the games from Holland by bicycle, so a bit tired when arriving at Blackheath. But then I was pleased with very friendly people, enthousiastic volunteers, lovely camping space, a cosy clubhouse and a possibility to shower and get electricity. In other words: it was fantastic! I will never forget how I enjoyed the athmosphere with all people looking as one big family, enjoying the sports and everything that comes with it. Thank you very much! With kind regards, Mrlon Tielemans

  123. Glad you had a great time Marlon :) would you like to leave a review for us? We always appreciate hearing from the happy campers! The link to leave a review is below.
