    We are visiting the Olympics this summer and we are looking for a place to stay for 3 days, 2 nights (8/8 arrival – 9/8 – 10/8 depart), for 3 adults.

    Our first choice would be a pre-assembled tent but other options are also possible (we could bring our own tent or sleep in a minivan).

    We have tickets for the Athletics 9/8/2012 starting at 9am. I suppose we can get there on time from the campingsite?

    What can you offer us and what would all this cost?

    If there’s nothing left, where can we try to find a place to sleep near the Olympics?

    Thank you very much,


  2. Hi there,

    Eton Manor is probably the best site for you, it is only 10 minutes via tube to the Olympic Park and we still have availability. To hire a pre-erected 4 man tent the cost is £25 per night plus the cost per per person, which is £10 per night for adults and £5 for children. Unfortunately this is the only size tent we can offer.

    This can all be booked through the website, I have copied the link below to the page for Eton Manor. Thanks for your query, let us know if you have any problems.

    Can anyone tell me which campsite is the closest to basketball avenue please?

  4. Arnaud says:

    Thanx a lot, we wonder if one day extra is also a possibility? Can we also stay friday on saturday? I still have to check with my mates but I was just wondering…



  5. Hi Arnaud,

    We still have availability for this site and it is open on the 27th & 29th July and from the 3rd-12th August. If you have anyone to add onto your bookings you can process these separately through the site as we charge per person not per pitch. Let us know if you have any problems, many thanks.

  6. Lisa Chadwick says:

    Can you clarify the end date, ie 12th. My last shift finishes at 6.00 pm on this date. Will I be able to stay on this site on the evening,that is move my tent on the 13th, or will I need to move the tent on the 12th, if so by what time. Last question, will wi-fi be available, and is it secure. Thanks.

  7. Yes the site will be open in the evening, so you can stay on until the Monday, thanks.

  8. Rob says:

    I have a couple of really early (o6:00) starts in The Mall , which is the best camping site ?

  9. Check out our travel planning guide to see which might be best. Also, do check on for specfic train / tube times to see that they run that early. All tubes will but may struggle more with mainline trains….

  10. Robert says:


    Is there still availability for this site on the 4th, 5th and 6th August. Also on the day you leave can i leave my car and go to work my final gamesmaker shift then return for my car?

  11. Yes to both questions Robert :)

  12. Chris says:

    Hi there, looking at this campsite as a potential place to stay whilst volunteering at the olympic park.

    Some of my shifts finish at 11pm. Getting back to oakwood tube station is no problem but i dont fancy walking down an unlit road to the campsite from the tube station. Is there going to be any transport on that will get me to the front of the campsite?


  13. Hi Chris, not directly to the front, but you must remember there are many other Games Makers around to create a safe and fun atmosphere!

  14. John says:

    I’ve only just got my work place for the games have you still got places from the 25th July for 16 nights


  15. Neil says:

    We are looking for a family campsite for the 6,7 and8th of August for a family of 4. We are travelling from the north and want to be handy for central London. Is there anything available?
    Thanks Neil

  16. Hi Neil, I recommend Eton Manor for you and your family, a great location and atmosphere!

  17. Claudia says:

    I was curious to know how much it would be to bring your own tent and stay at two for three nights (13.08-16.08).
    Could you also tell me which is the closest area to the centre of London?
    Thanks a lot in advance,

  18. Hi Claudia, the price is £10 p/person p/night, and our closest campsite to the centre of London is Eton Manor.
