Just outside of London, Croydon is a rapidly developing town, home to many companies who would rather avoid the stresses of London city life. While just as modern as large cities, Croydon has managed to retain a way of life reflecting the countryside and has a vast history for visitors to discover.
Whether collecting your rental car in London and driving down or picking your rental up in Croydon itself, there is plenty to see and do and your hire car will get you to all the sights. Auto Europe offers several pick up locations and a large fleet selection, so finding a car rental in Croydon is both easy and economical.
To learn a little about the area, pop into the Museum of Croydon, which holds great displays on the history of the town, as well as exhibits dating back to the 19th century. The area surrounding Croydon lies on top of large deposits of chalk and flint, which over the centuries have drawn many civilisations to settle here. Drive your rental car a short trip east, and visit Chislehurst Caves, 20 miles of caves carved out of chalk. The caves were carved by hand over thousands of years, and give a great insight into the valuable underground resources in the area.
With parks and forests throughout the area, a day of scenic walks and picnics is highly recommended for anyone visiting Croydon. For a great day outdoors, drive your hire car to Jubilee Country Park, also located east of Croydon, just a short distance from Chislehurst Caves. The park is a reserve for a wide variety of wildlife, and you can follow the scenic paths through flower gardens, old growth forests, and fields, perfect for a day of relaxing and basking in the fresh country air.
Back in Croydon, you can take advantage of all the benefits of city living, without having the stress that normally comes with them. Park your hire car near the Croydon Clocktower and visit Surrey St Markets, which date back over 800 years and still offer great bargains today. For a day of sightseeing, why not jump in your rental car and take the short drive north to London, where you can visit Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, and the famous London Bridge. The day trip options are endless with your hire car through Auto Europe.
