Safeguard's Royal Wedding Weekend Guide

MANCHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - April 17, 2011) - With the Royal Wedding next week and with it a double bank holiday break, the pro-monarchy motorhomers and caravanners will be thinking about making a royal road trip to enjoy the wedding in the capital.

An online survey completed by the caravan and motorhome insurance provider, Safeguard UK, has discovered that 64% of the caravanning community are for the royal family and a further 99% are happy for Prince William and Kate Middleton. The survey also discovered that 67% would be keen to get down to London for the wedding.

As a result, Safeguard UK, a leading provider of caravan insurance in the UK, is revealing its grandiose guide of places to stay, for caravanners thinking of making the trip.

  1. Abbey Wood Caravan Site – Located in South East London, Abbey Wood is within the M25 and 30 mins from central London by train.
  2. Crystal Palace Caravan Site – Close to central London, a bus will take you right into the heart of the royal wedding action, with tickets available on-sight.
  3. Lee Valley Campsite – Located in North London, Lee Valley is within easy reach of the city centre but also has many on-site amenities and is close to a 1000 acre forest.
  4. Debden House Campsite – Located in Essex – Debden House is a former farm that offers camping near to the Epping Forest and a tube station with direct access to central London.
  5. Walton on Thames Caravan Site – Located just 15 miles from central London, this picturesque caravan park offers quiet and secluded surroundings with easy access to London.

Rita Sadler, Head of Safeguard UK said "It's great to see so many caravanners excited about and keen to go down to watch the Royal Wedding.

"However, it's important to remember when visiting mass celebrations, such as the Royal Wedding, that caravan security is important. This isn't your local caravan park with the people you know. As long as caravanners remain vigilant whilst still enjoying the big day, the weekend will be a huge success".
