    Car Hire London

    London Car HireBegin your exploration of London with a visit to Westminster, home of some of the world's most iconic destinations including Westminster Abbey, The Palace of Westminster and the Queen's Residence, Buckingham Palace. While you're here, catch a glimpse of the world famous Big Ben clock tower or for a day of adventure with the family, then the Tower of London must be on your list!

    The Covent Garden Piazza is the perfect place to relax and unwind after a day of exploring. The complex is littered with shops, restaurants and other sight-seeing activities. Visitors are able to window shop the designer labels around Covent Garden and Seven Dials.

    Just an hour out of London, you'll find the county town of Guildford, located in Surrey. High Street in Guildford has a beautiful cobbled road featuring century-old buildings holding charming boutiques and rooftop restaurants. When you're ready to explore the rest of England, head to the delightful town of Bath to tour ancient Roman baths or spend a few days in the celebrated university town of Oxford.
