The centre of London is full of historical landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament alongside world-famous Big Ben, or even Tower Bridge and the medieval Tower of London. An Enterprise rental car can help you explore the many things to do in the surrounding area. Whether you are visiting Richmond Park and Kew Gardens in the South West, a botanical garden with Victorian palm houses and treetop walkways, or the Lee Valley White Water Centre opened for the 2012 London Olympics in North London – both are often easier to reach by car than public transport. By hiring a car when in London, you can also venture a bit further outside of the city to keep things interesting. Visit Southend-on-Sea and its pier for a coastal break from the busy city– only an hour’s drive from London. Or if you enjoy hiking, go and explore the Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, also about an hour away from London by car.
