City of London

London Heathrow Airport Car Rental

With close to two thousand years' worth of history and culture, a wealth of world class museums and art galleries and no end of excellent shopping, the sheer extent of things to do in London, England can be overwhelming. There is therefore no better way to see the city than with the freedom of your very own London Heathrow Airport Car Rental, the international gateway to the United Kingdom. With a huge range of hire cars in England to choose from, there is sure to be a rental car to suit your needs and, as you can pick up the rental car directly from London Heathrow airport in the United Kingdom, there will be no time wasted before heading out to discover the wonders of this magnificent capital and explore Great Britain by car. 

The City of London by Hire Car

Drive your rental car to your hotel, drop off your bags, and kick-start your trip with a visit to London's South Bank. From here you get the perfect view of the Houses of Parliament and London's most iconic sight, Big Ben, from over the River Thames. Better still, you can hop on the London Eye, for unique and breathtaking views across the rooftops of the city. Lining this side of the Thames, there is also a vibrant array of street performers and art and entertainment venues, with Westminster and Buckingham Palace just over the river.

When you are ready for a break from the bustle of the city, you can jump in your hire car and drive to one of the lovely towns that make up metropolitan London. At Highgate, home to London's most famous cemetery - the serene and atmospheric resting place of such notable figures as political philosopher, Karl Marx, and renowned British novelist, George Eliot - is an ideal choice. Here you can admire the Georgian architecture, enjoy a pint and some pub food in an English beer garden or have afternoon tea in one of the quaint cafes that make up this charming village. And, just a short drive away, is Kenwood House, a former stately home and English Heritage Site, which overlooks the rugged and beautiful Hampstead Heath, a great place for a peaceful walk in a scenic patch of British countryside.

Beyond the City in your rental car

The real advantage of a London Heathrow Airport Car Rental comes when you realise what the area surrounding London in England has to offer. Just under two hours' drive from the centre is the ancient site of Stonehenge, one of the most iconic sights in the world and certainly not one to be missed. Also no more than two hours away, in your rental car, are the resplendent university towns of Oxford and Cambridge and the archetypal British seaside town of Brighton on the UK south coast. Here you can sit on the gorgeous pebble beach, play in the arcades on the pier, explore the narrow, cobbled streets of the Lanes, enjoy delicious fish and chips on the seafront and get a taste for the thriving British music scene, with live bands in many of the pubs and bars.

When it is time to say goodbye there is no need to worry about organising public transport, back to the airport, as you can drop off your rental car at London Heathrow Airport, allowing you to make the most of your time in this unforgettable English city.
