With around two thousand years of history dating back to Roman times, cosmopolitan London's seemingly endless choice of culture, entertainment and shopping mean that the capital has a great deal to offer. Car hire is not needed at first to explore the centre and West End with cinemas or a plethora of theatres with shows and musicals to choose from. It can be difficult to choose between the British Museum, Science Museum or Victoria and Albert (among many others).
Why not soak up the atmosphere and take a trip on a red double-decker bus, or a stroll on the banks of the River Thames – perhaps from Saint Paul’s Cathedral over the Millennium Bridge to the Tate Gallery? The Shakespeare Theatre is nearby and there are riverboat trips. Alternatively, the centrally located London Eye offers flights lasting around thirty minutes, with views of nearby Buckingham Palace and the curves of the River Thames as it winds past the Houses of Parliament. See all the incredible sights and skyline from the air, with panoramic views up to 35 kilometres on a good day.
With your hire car arranged, there are many options to consider. Camden Market is in north London – with cobbled pathways and an amazing number of stalls; London Zoo is nearby. The East End and Docklands are increasingly fashionable and a one-kilometre long gondola style cable car ride runs from the Royal Docks (near the Excel exhibition centre) to Canning Town and the Greenwich Peninsula, with the O2 arena.
Near here are the Royal Observatory and National Maritime Museum. For shoppers, Westfield Shopping Centre is near Shepherd’s Bush to the west of London and there are others such as Lakeside and Bluewater, easily reached with car hire and near Thurrock, off the M25.
Waltham Abbey is a scenic market town with parks, greens and rivers, just over twenty kilometres north. The RAF Museum offers free admission and is situated at Hendon, just off the M1 near Colindale. Wembley Stadium is to the west of London, or head out on the M4 towards Windsor Castle, the royal residence. This castle is particularly noted for its impressive architecture and interesting history. Finally, the coastal resorts of Brighton with its Palace Pier, or Essex's Southend-on-Sea are both within easy reach with car hire.
