As seasoned Londoners know, the City, Central London and the West End are not exactly the best place to drive a London hire car. However, if you are fed up with the hustle and bustle of city life and depend on public transportation to get around, a London car hire may be just the thing you need to unwind. Stop being bothered by the tourists and become one yourself by renting a London car hire and take a drive to the magnificent country that surrounds London north, south, east or west they all point you in the direction of a great tourist experience!

Get a rental car and take a drive in the country

Taking a train can be fun option, but this can add significant time to your journey and will definitely limit the places you can visit on your day out. London car hire is convenient, with the global suppliers, Hertz, Avis, Thrifty, Alamo, Budget and Europcar all having car hire locations scattered around town so there is probably one right near your house. With so many London car hire suppliers to choose from, you are bound to find a deal on the car you need to get out of town.

If your idea is to "Go West" and you are taking the whole family, rent a minivan or people carrier and go to Legoland. It's a twenty minute drive from the center of London and there is something for everyone both young and old.

Windsor Castle has the most amazing "state apartments" and is the largest operating castle in the world. Parking for your London car hire is convenient just below the castle on the way into town, pay and display. Just up the A40 toward Oxford, Beckensfield has a model village that you and the family can enjoy in the summer months. A London car hire makes all of these places accessible and, more importantly, at your own leisure.

Going further West, you can drive your London car to visit The Cotswolds (left). A favourite strategy for this is to not make any hotel bookings, start at the bottom at Stow on the Wold, drive until it gets dark, then stay in whatever village you are in. The Cotswolds are so pretty and each village has its own unique character.

Going North, drive your hire car to the heart of English academia, Cambridge, with its sprawling campus of world famous colleges and schools, and villagey atmosphere. Why not punt down the Cam River in one of the long boats, let an experienced guide do the driving for a change and tell you about the history of the school.

Going East into Essex, pack the family into a family size hire car and head off to the Broads in Suffolk and Norfolk, stop in at the lovely village of Walberswick or Maldon.

If you are going South, a great place to visit is Brighton where you can show off your fancy, new, hire convertible as you drive down the boardwalk with the top down.

Public transportation is great for getting around London it is true, and if your commuting, there is nothing like it. But for touring the country, rent a London car hire and head out of town for the weekend in style.
