Driving in London

Driving in London can be a most frustrating experience. It is anything but easy with traffic and we recommend that you use the underground or ‘The Tube’ as they call it.

Drive your rental car around London

While driving in London is not something we recommend, since the traffic can drive you crazy and parking sport are almost impossible to come by, you should hire a car to take trips outside London. Although London can keep you busy for your whole trip, you would be missing out if you don’t see what else England has to offer.

The most obvious day trip is of course Stonehenge, one of the wonders of the world and the best known prehistoric monument in Europe. This iconic symbol of Britain was built around 4,500 years ago in the Neolithic era. Admire the stone circle and wander around the Neolithic houses outside the visitor centre.

Bath can be easily added to your day trip to Stonehenge. This spa town is so rich in history, it’s one of only two UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the region. Bath is known for its Roman built baths and a temple. Bath Abbey was founded in the 7th century and became a religious centre. Walk down the streets and wander at the rich history that you can see on every step.

Drive your rental car to Warwickshire and visit historic Warwick castle. This impressive castle was home to the Earls of Warwick, who were big figures in the Britain’s medieval history. From barons' rebellion of 1173–74 to the War of Roses they help forged the politics of the middle ages. While there it is just a short ride away from Stratford-upon-Avon, famous for being the birthplace of English most famous playwriter and poet William Shakespeare.

England is famous for its royal family and if you are into everything royal or just a history enthusiast, Windsor Castle is a place you cannot afford to miss. It is just a 25 mile west of central London and driving your rental car to there should take you no more than 50 minutes. This magnificent castle has been the family home to British monarchs for over 1,000 years. The size of the castle is breath-taking and in fact it is the largest and oldest occupied castle in the world.

No stay in Great Brittan would be complete without a visit to Cambridge and Oxford, home of the UK’s oldest and most famous universities. Both were founded more than eight centuries ago. Beautiful and historical buildings are really breath taking.
