London, the capital of England and the United Kingdom, is a fascinating city boasting over 2,000 years of history. With a hire car you can explore the City of London, the West End, the East End, South Bank and the many towns of Greater London. Why not spend a weekend sightseeing in London, then drive your rental car to the coast and visit Brighton or follow the River Thames to Windsor?
Booking a rental car with easyCar, the online car hire specialist, is simple. easyCar has car rental facilities at London City Airport, Gatwick Airport and Heathrow Airport, as well as at a number of major railway stations including King's Cross and Victoria, in downtown London and the surrounding towns.
London is located in the south east of England and was originally named Londinium by the Romans. Today, the City of London or 'Square Mile' is better known for being the financial district, although Canary Wharf and the Docklands (site of London City Airport) has developed into a thriving business centre. London City however, covers a far greater area and is divided into 33 boroughs each with its own individual character.
Shopping in London is second to none! Camden Town is renowned for its bohemian markets, whilst huge high street stores are centrally located in the West End, along Oxford Street and Regent Street. Whereas Knightsbridge, home to the spectacular upmarket department store Harrods, is the place for designer boutiques.
For sightseeing in London, start at the huge London Eye wheel on the South Bank for stunning views, then take a stroll along the River Thames either northwards to visit Tate Modern, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and the Tower of London, or to the west and over Westminster Bridge to see Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. Take a stroll through the London Royal Parks which include St James Park, Hyde Park and Regent's Park and onto Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square and China Town. Book a summer tour of Buckingham Palace, the Queen's residency, and visit one of the superb museums such as the Natural History or Science Museums.
At night the pubs, clubs and theatres around Soho and Covent Garden come to life, but should you choose fine dining or a quick snack, London will not disappoint.
London is renowned for its scenic parks, but drive your hire car just four miles
north west of the city centre and you will find the ancient hilly park of exclusive
Hampstead Heath. The town appeals to the young and old, with its quaint stores,
excellent restaurants and buzzing nightlife. Conveniently close to the major motorway
network, the M1 is just a few miles drive leading to the north of England with the
M25 encircling the London suburbs, with easy access to Essex, Kent, Hampshire, Surrey
Windsor Castle, the world's largest and oldest occupied castle is a 40 minutes drive
from London, although slightly closer, is Hampton Court Palace.
With your rental car, drive south east of London to the historic town of Greenwich,
best known for the Royal Observatory, National Maritime Museum and Old Royal Naval
