Car rental in London
Left-hand traffic is not an obstacle, or what to see in London when traveling by carLondon is a modern tourist capital, which is visited by about 15 million tourists every year. Mystery, variety, and uniqueness of the capital of the UK makes visitors come here. The city is rightfully considered one of the oldest on the planet - it was founded by the Romans in 43 AD. In London you can rent a car almost at every corner - there are plenty of rental stations everywhere.
London is a rich city in every way. And first of all it is rich in architecture, high culture, interesting traditions, and its roots that go back to centuries.
Where to go and where to walkEven if you rent a car you won’t be able to see everything in the capital of the United Kingdom in a short time - you need to come here for at least ten days. Let's try to identify the highlights of your future route:
The symbols of Albion
- The most famous landmark of London is considered to be Big Ben - one of the three tallest towers in the world. Under the dome there are four clocks installed on all the four sides, which represent four sides of the world. The sound of a giant bell spreads to 8 km and it is heard everywhere.
- Another symbol is the drawbridge called 'Tower Bridge’. The bridge was designed by H. Jones and connects the banks of the Thames. The bridge was opened in 1894 by Prince Edward of Wales and his wife. The supporting towers located parallel to the carriageway are connected above the bridge by pedestrian galleries, which have become artistic. There is the opening of the bridge 4-5 times a week.
Buckingham PalaceIt is impossible not to mention the very heart of London - the residence of the British monarchs, which today is the residence of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
The palace was founded by the order of the Duke of Buckingham in 1703, but since then it has been rebuilt many times and has acquired its majestic appearance. It’s hard to believe but in real life the palace is even more magnificent than in the picture. There is a beautiful garden with waterfalls and a pond on the territory of the palace, but, unfortunately, you can get there only in summer.
Nearly the most popular attraction here is the changing of the Queen’s guard, which includes the regiments of the Foot Guards and the Royal Horse Guards. The rest of your London car trip will lose its charm if you miss this extremely impressive event!
Globe TheatreWe cannot forget about great Shakespeare. A theater, built for the money of the acting company of the greatest classical writer, is somewhat modernized, and today it is visited by tourists who would like to learn more about the life and the work of the famous playwright.
All the above mentioned is just a small part of what you need to see first. And if you are not confused by the left-hand driving, come here again, and Avis car rental service will ensure that you are experiencing the most comfortable driving in London.
The British museumThe main museum of the entire Great Britain - sounds intriguing, does not it? There are almost as many visitors here as in the famous Louvre in France. Here you will find a real treasury of art and archeological artifacts from the time of the dinosaurs to the present day.
The London EyeEveryone went to the observation wheel in their city park. And what about visiting the biggest observation wheel in Europe? This sight got such a nickname for good reason.
