London Travel Guide
One of the world’s great cities – London charms with its rows of Georgian townhouses stacked up side by side with glassy skyscrapers, an enviable food scene that could see you eating everything from sushi to dim sum and its long list of world-class attractions. The English writer Samuel Johnson once wrote, “when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life”. It’s hard to disagree. While the centre sees most of the tourist action, there’s so much more to London. If you’ve scored a London car rental when you arrive at Stansted, Luton, Heathrow or Gatwick, you’re free to explore the city at your own pace. Plus, there’s plenty more side trips like the achingly hip coastal city of Brighton just a stone’s throw away.
Dining in London
While England’s cuisine might not have a great reputation, few cities in the world compete with London’s buzzy dining scene. In fact, such a diverse population means you can get authentic cuisine from around the world. Watch hand-made pizzas sizzling in wood-fired ovens, work a pair of chopsticks over freshly steaming dim sum, mop up curries along Brick Lane or visit one of the indoor food markets to try some of the most innovative street food vendors in the country. Alternatively, you could always hop in your London car hire and make a dash for the coast where freshly-caught fish dominates most restaurant menus.
Attractions in London
It’s almost easier to list what London doesn’t have. Whether you’re looking to explore art at Southbank’s Tate Modern, catch one of the world-class musicals in the West End, take a journey through time at the Natural History Museum or experience a slice of Old England at the Tower of London, there is always something to keep you entertained. In such a large city, a car rental in London comes in mighty handy when you want to scoot between the museums and attractions, particularly those further from the centre. Plus, while the city has some fine shopping, those looking to bag a bargain shouldn’t miss driving out to Bicester Village outlet, one of the UK’s most visited attractions.
London driving routes
You could spend your entire vacation in the city itself and still not have scratched the surface. That said, if you’re after a little countryside, you can’t do better than a drive out to the truly spectacular Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. After driving up along the winding country lanes, find a spot to leave your London car rental, don your boots and go walking along the hiking trails which pass chocolate-box villages and hug gorgeous lakes. Bring your camera because you’re not going to want to miss nabbing snaps of one of the country’s most beautiful regions.
London car rental
Whichever of city’s four main airports you arrive into – Heathrow, Gatwick, Stanstead or Luton – you’ll never have trouble scoring a car rental in London. The distance into the city very much depends on where you land and your hotel’s location, but you can bank on a journey of at least an hour. Try to book a hotel with free spots to leave your car at night because although finding a parking space in London isn’t all that hard, it can often be expensive. Whether you’re coming on a romantic weekend break in the city or a family getaway with the kids, you’ll always find a rental vehicle which fits the bill.
