After all, a lot of Volkswagen camper vans are located in Great Britain and the folks really now how to care for them. It's a special kind of devotion and I guess that you won't get so many VW camper shops and and dealers all in one place like in the UK.

Hats off chaps...A VW camper van for hire is only natural here. You have a wide variety of choice, from the early T1 models to the latest Volkswagen technology.

Great Britain is a large country with a character all of it's own. First of all, they're proud of their heritage, drive on their left and have a particular taste in food. Top that off with a bit of a cynical humor and you got it basically covered.

Finding camping sites in UK needs some planing and logistics of course.

The country is divided in four main parts. The majority lies on the south and the west and it's called Britain (Anglia) with London being the touristic, cultural and administrative center of the country. The central-west part is called Wales and the main town goes by the name of Cardiff.

One of the most traveled destinations is by all means Scotland and the main town of Edinburgh. The land of vast pastries, steep cliffs, man's kilts (no panties underneath!), lakes and the monster Nessie living in the lake of Loch Ness.

And since you made it all the way up here, North Ireland and the rest of the country of course sounds like a great place to travel and enjoy the beautiful countryside, doesn't it?

Camping Sites UK Infrastructure

Like everything else in Great Britain even the camping sites are more then well taken care off. Large pitches and top notch facilities are very common.

The British are enthusiastic campers therefore you might need a reservation during the high season. But with a bit of good will and some common sense you'll most likely get a spot for yourself.

Naturist camping is also available in the UK so if you enjoy and practice naturism by the sea or in the country, there is plenty of camping sites available for this type of activities.

Camper Stops And Security

Traveling in a camper van or a motorhome allows you to sleep just about anywhere you wish so. To understand a little bit better this philosophy, that is at the designated areas or parking places.

Areas where for some reason or another an overnight stay is forbidden are appropriately signposted, just in case you get tempted. Most of the travelers that I talk to never had any safety issues on this spots, so take their word for it.

What To See And Where To Go

If you're at your starting point and have some difficulties planing the trip well...
