Standing amongst skyscrapers, boroughs and suburbs that sprawl over 1500km2, it’s hard to believe that London was once a walled-in, 1.6km2 area. The metropolis stretches across two counties and is one of the largest cities in all of Europe.
Even so, there are plenty of wide-open green spaces, often surrounded by world-class museums. And of course, there are internationally famous sites like Big Ben and the Tower Bridge. Really, the “Old Smoke” is kind of like two cities in one, and you can roll into both of them from the comfort of your own London car rental.
Right in the heart of London you can check out some of the city’s most iconic sights, like Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey. Head around the curve and down river to check out the Tower of London—or, rather the 22 towers and castle of London, as it happens—and see the Crown Jewels, the White Tower and the Royal Armoury.
When you’re ready for some time outdoors, use one of Wotif’s London car hire options to check out The Regent’s Park, home to Winfield House Grounds and the London Zoo.
