Eurocamp, the leading family camping holiday company, has announced the opening of their prestigious London City campsite just in time for the school half term holidays.
In their brochure, Eurocamp extols the virtues of the ‘absolutely stunning location, with all of the amenities that an inner city camp site can be expected to possess', going on to describe the specially selected position of the St. Paul’s site as being ‘just a stone’s throw from London’s historic financial quarter.’
Anxious to avoid accusations of being environmentally unfriendly, Eurocamp has gone to great lengths to avoid adding to the City’s services burden by electing not to be connected to the main sewage outlets, instead inviting residents to ‘do their own thing’ in the conveniently placed ‘shared experience’ chemical conveniences just outside each tent or by visiting the nearby parks for which London is renowned.
Early arrivals were KT and Rik who travelled to London with their children Foxi and Sacha. ‘This is so much better than the farm holiday we recently took in Essex. The activities here are all very nice, like the free bicycles, but adrenaline junkies will miss the tasers and baton charges. Even the dawn raids are very peaceful affairs - just a few people in suits buying shares.’
Rik was impressed by the cost of the holiday. ‘So far we’ve not spent a penny, and we are free to stay as long as we like. Despite what everyone here is saying, this holiday certainly isn’t going to break the bank. Not that we want to be greedy.’
Meanwhile, Eurocamp’s brochure recommends that campers check opening hours with any venues they may wish to visit during their stay: ‘Although the St. Paul’s campsite is handily placed for visits to London’s great religious institutions,’ it concludes, ‘we cannot guarantee that they will always be open.’
