Car Hire London Heathrow Airport
Say hello to London! Whether this is your first international travelling experience or your tenth, you’re bound to have a wonderful time here.
Start packing your suitcase with your best Autumn-wear for the trip, as this city is known for snowy winters from December, mid-range warm summers in July, and frequent rain all year around. Either way, the weather is bound to make for a holiday full of surprises.
The city of London is known not only for its royal family but its rich history, traditions, influences, culture, and sense of fashion. Venture near the beautiful Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, Big Ben, or the famous Tower Bridge to start ticking off some of the big-name tourist hotspots, before you begin to explore the wider city and surrounding areas. As Britain’s biggest city, not only can you witness the outstanding palace architecture, but you can shake things up with a trip to countryside paradises and peaceful destinations.
Visit St. James Park, a gorgeous green space just outside the royal castle, Kensington Park, or Hampstead Heath, famous for being one of the four largest parks in Central London and covering a whopping 790 acres. Birdwatchers, families, couples, and all friends of nature will appreciate their beauty.
