Stealth camping on London's supercar street!
I suppose this is a good time to do the intro now because we're pretty much um at our destination. We've decided to come to central London Simply because we haven't been to London in ages and well we want to spend some time here. I know of a street where we can park for free.
We're just about to go onto the street and find a sort of suitable spot I guess So we've arrived at our park-up, we're on the very famous Sloane street very rich part of London commonly known for uh designer outlet stores and supercars and Harrods as well just around the corner uh is a single yellow line so we can legally park here from half past six saturday all the way until monday morning 8 a.m So first thing we're going to do is just put the curtain on just for that privacy in the back so no-one can see it's a camper we are trying to be um as stealth as possible so this is the first step and we're gonna have to take that fan off Can you move my seat? I can oh yeah okay push it go okay Okay stealth step one done So this is our camp spot we're just going to have a wonder around check out the bikes santander bikes and yeah check the local area So this is an awesome way to get around London two pounds for 24 hours, as long as you keep the rides under 30 minutes then that is the charge if you ride longer than 30 minutes it's an extra two pounds um but if you just do a little bit of planning park up the bike you have a a bike for 24 hours for two pounds I can't remember I said two pounds too many times um yeah we're gonna have a little ride back so a good thing about camping in london is you can use the toilet pretty much anywhere there's so many places you can use the toilet we've just been to McDonald's it's about two minutes maybe not two minutes um a couple of minutes away from where we parked so really not a big deal um there's also a bunch of public toilets in Hyde Park and uh yeah so we're gonna head back towards the van it's getting quite dark now we're both hungry and we're gonna make something for dinner After you madam We're in We are in okay let's get some lights on we've got all the blinds on now We do usually use blinds on the front but we're going for stealth mode so we're just leaving the front looking like a normal car and we do have a small gap with the curtain but it has to be a really a really weird angle to see any light leaking through it so um yeah pretty weird feeling being in the back of this in the middle of uh central london but we're gonna cook something for dinner now. So we've managed to set up the bed without getting out the van we've cleaned up from our dinner had a lovely dinner and well we're gonna we're watching some something on Netflix and gonna try and get some sleep it's quite noisy still and it's probably not gonna get much quieter but we'll keep you uh i'll give you an update in the morning. Good morning we're just waking up pretty much I did wake up a little bit earlier about half past six but fell asleep again um how did you sleep? Good, it was a little bit noisy but it was okay yeah it was a bit noisy um a lot of cars a lot of noisy bikes a lot of noisy people uh it was a lot of music but eventually it did uh sort of go quiet and we managed to get some sleep um so yeah we're gonna get up have some breakfast and go have a wander around.
lights off let's go let's go uh so we've had a little walk into hyde park we're currently in Rose Gardens and it is absolutely beautiful weather's not great at the moment but that's fine we're still close to the van and uh we're probably going to go back and put our jackets on soon but we're just enjoying this at the moment it's very empty and quiet. We honestly don't care that the weather's not that great um it just means there's less people here and well it's just it's beautiful it doesn't matter if it's raining, we're really enjoying it So we just had a lovely morning in Rose Garden in Hyde Park just heading back to the van we're gonna have some lunch and get ready for a little bike ride adventure Let's go to the queen, for cuppa tea! Cuppa tea! We're back in the van because it's dinner time and we're starving um pretty tired we did a lot of walking a lot of cycling um so we're gonna have some dinner now and then figure out what the next step is. We just finished our lovely dinner we decided that we're not going to stay here again tonight we could stay because the parking is is still free until monday uh 8 a.m and it's sunday night but instead we're gonna move on because it was a little bit noisy and we would prefer um quieter spot to park up um I don't know how the background noise is but it's getting quite lively here and yeah I want a nice sleep tonight i'm pretty tired after last night and uh after all of our activity today yeah yeah so we're gonna pop to McDonald's use the toilet before we start driving um so see you out there we're gonna take off the blinds now as well because well we don't need we don't need the blinds on. dog The car behind us is starting So this pretty much summarizes our 24 hours in London camping on Sloane Street one of the richest streets in London um would recommend definitely um I would definitely recommend earplugs we do wish we had earplugs with us yeah um actually we thought about that but forgot it yeah we did we did that was in the plan to bring in plugs but we managed to forget them somehow um would have slept much better with earplugs but it's also you know obviously it's not ideal you're on a super busy street um full of cars loud cars especially because it is really known for supercars and expensive cars we did London in 24 hours we saw a lot we did a lot and it barely cost us anything a couple of quid on the bikes a little bit of money for dinner, lunch, brekkie but you know it's everything you got already in the van something I forgot to mention is is we don't have to pay any congestion charge or ultra low emission zone charge because we simply didn't drive into them and um yeah I mean it was cool it was uh something I wanted to do it was a weird idea in my head because I knew about Sloane Street before I've been here before So I just thought it would be cool to come and spend the night here and it was I can say I've done it and yeah. Would I do it again? Maybe maybe with earplugs Yeah maybe somewhere else Maybe on Christmas day when there's nothing going on um but yeah cool it is cool so yeah thank you for watching I hope you enjoyed this video and we are just almost at the van again it is just there and we're gonna drive to the next spot so thank you for watching see you next time and bye! Bye!
