Garden camping is, quite simply what it says on the tin, a way for homeowners to make a bit of money renting out their garden space to the many tourists coming over for the London Olympics.
Being the latest concept in traveling trends, the style of garden camping can vary from basic camping to ‘glamping’ (glamorous camping).
As most hotels are fully-booked and landlords hike up the rent to an outrageous price, this scheme is helping tourists find a more affordable way to visit the City during the 2012 Games. With eastend garden owners certainly profiting from this scheme the most, with the current listings priced around £28 per person per night – a nice price for simply opening your garden gate.
