Safeguard Gives London Camp Sites the Gold Medal

MANCHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Nov. 20, 2011) - London Olympics 2012 is fast approaching and Safeguard, the UK's leading provider of caravan insurance, is urging tourists to get their camping spot booked if they want to watch the Games next year.

Temporary sites around London, which include facilities such as showers and toilet blocks and clubhouses, are been constructed just for the Games. Safeguard is lending cunning campers a helping hand when searching for the best temporary sites around the City.

Ideal for active campers who want to combine the pleasure of the countryside with the excitement of the Games, Safeguard recommends the Waterworks Nature Reserve and Golf Centre in Leyton. The 320-pitch site will be opening its gates on July 20th for four weeks and is the closest site to the Games with only a ten minute walk from the Olympic Park. The reserve offers all the essential camping facilities including toilet and shower blocks and watering amenities as well as onsite catering.

For caravan owners who are looking for convenient accommodation, Safeguard say Romford campsite which is located in Westfield Playing Fields in the London Borough of Havering, is ideal for tourists on a budget. For only £30 per night, the site is situated close to Romford Station with a train journey time of only 15 minutes to Stratford Station near the Olympic Park.

Rita Sadler, Safeguard Manager said, "When booking a pitch for the 2012 Games, always make sure you're staying at a recommended reputable site. Ensure you have valid motorhome insurance as during events such as the Olympics you may be more likely to be at a higher risk of accidents or theft."
