Looking to visit London for the 2012 Olympics? With hotels under huge demand during this season, and the prospect of inflated prices, many people are searching for alternative ways to stay within easy reach of the games.
Buttercup Bus VW Campers cannot think of a better solution than camping, bringing you the benefit of reasonably priced accommodation the freedom to visit the beautiful surrounding countryside and the ability to stay in child friendly environments.
You could add a retro touch to your trip, hiring one of Buttercup Buses 1970s VW Campers for accommodation. This can prove to be a cost effective form of accommodation and transport, from less than £100 per day. The campers can carry 5-6 people and come equipped with everything you need to get your holiday started, from camping chairs to kitchenware. There is even a free detachable awning to provide additional storage space and sleeping room. We are perfectly located in Croydon, South London, right off the A23, a main artery into London. We are within 30 minutes of Gatwick Airport and close proximity to the M25.
Check out our video, made by Which Holiday TV, to find out more about how our campervans can make an Olympics visit into a truly memorable holiday.
Our vintage campervans offer you the flexibility to mix watching the Olympics with tours to the Great British seaside, country pubs and forest walks… and if you take a day off from the city centre, why not kick back, get the portable BBQ going (that we supply with the campervan), crack open a beer and watch the games on the big screen that some of the campsites provide. Ahhhh!
