Are you visiting London? Worried by the infamously complicated public transit system? Simple, rent a car for the duration of your stay and forget about tube trains, buses and taxi cabs. Public transport in London can be expensive, especially if you are travelling by taxi, you may find that one of the budget car rental companies such as Budget, Hertz, Europacar or Avis will be able to provide you with your own vehicle at a cost which competes with heavy use of the public transport system in London over a period of days. The great thing about having your own car whilst staying in London is the huge variety of different places you will be able to visit, all within a few miles of the centre of London.
Apart from the well known central attractions such as the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, there are a lot of equally impressive places a little out of town. Kew Gardens in one such place, a huge botanical garden and landscaped park close to Richmond, very easily reached by hire car, a great day out for the entire family. If sport is your thing, why not time your visit with the Wimbledon Tennis tournament? Another great location easily reached by car from the centre of London. Another option is to head out in to the English countryside, possibly down in to Kent or across into Norfolk for a real taste of the English summer, replete with lunch in a traditional English pub.
