London, the world’s favourite city and there’s no better way to explore it and avoid the crush of public transport than with London car hire. With low prices available on car hire in the British capital and plenty of parking too, you’ll have a great time and get to explore many of the parts of this great city which are inaccessible by public transport.

London Mini Guide

Getting to London
There are several routes to London from South Africa but the most popular is via OR Tambo Airport outside Johannesburg. Elsewhere, try Virgin or BA’s flights to Cape Town.

Getting out of London
Car hire is invaluable here and you’ve got the option of visiting London’s beaches at Southend or Leigh on Sea by London hire car. Head south or southwest and you’ll enter Surrey and Sussex and be able to enjoy the peacefulness of the Downs with their quaint village inns serving real ale.

Places to Stay
Plenty of money will earn you a stay at the Ritz or the Savoy whilst for a reasonable nightly price you can enjoy the Langham which has nearly as much opulence and is very close to the shopping of Oxford and Regent Streets. Alternatively, there are plenty of budget chains such as Premier or Travelodge where an overnight stay won’t break the bank.

Must See Places in London
  • Buckingham Palace and the Changing of the Guard. Nothing sums up London like the royals and pageantry and you’ll get plenty of that outside Buckingham Palace
  • The London Eye. Get a birds-eye view of the city from the pods that slowly rotate on a huge wheel next to the Thames.
  • Museum Land. With some of the oldest and finest museums in the world, no trip to London would be complete without a trip to the Natural History Museum or the V & A.
  • A Boat Trip on the Thames. You can do this by launch, amphibious vehicle, rib or cruiser but whichever way you’ll get a glimpse of the world famous skyline and its equally famous buildings.
