UK FlagLONDON

Introduction

The vibrant, exciting and multicultural capital of the UK is one of the greatest cities in the world to visit. Culturally, financially and historically significant, there is no limit to the number of activities available in the city for those looking to discover something new. Every taste is catered for from food to clubs, clothing to sightseeing. Some of the world’s most beloved films were shot within the city and world-famous landmarks are hidden around every corner. Visitors will never be bored as the city is always offering something new to enjoy.

Ideal car

Hatchback. Due to the busy nature of many of the roads in London, it’s important to find a car that balances between small and nippy, and one that can’t be intimidated by bigger cars. The hatchback will keep drivers feeling safe no matter the road conditions they find.

Important things to note

Congestion charges apply to all cars traveling through the city with varying costs. When paid on the first day, the charge is £8; on the second day this will rise to £10. Should the fee be left unpaid, a fine of £40 will occur in the following two weeks and may rise to £80 thereafter.
Peak commuting hours are 7.30-9.30am and 4-7pm; these should be avoided whenever possible as traffic can become stationary at these times.
Central London experiences notoriously difficult parking which can also prove incredibly expensive. It is highly recommended that drivers park in the surrounding area and commute into the central area of the city.

Highlights & hotspots

Sightseeing in London is incredibly popular and, in order to take in all the city has to offer, can take several days alone. Buckingham Palace is one of the true highlights of any tour, while the Tower Bridge, Westminster Abbey and St Paul’s Cathedral offer insight into old London. To take in views of the entire city, the London Eye cannot be beat!
London is famous for its world class museums and art galleries, showcasing some of the greatest artists throughout history. The National Gallery is a fantastic look back at the history of art, while the Science Museum is one of the biggest and best the country has to offer.
While the urban side of London may feel all consuming, there are various beautiful green spots to visit which are known as “London’s lungs”. Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens are the biggest and most famous green areas popular amongst visitors and tourists alike, while those who like their gardens a little wilder will adore the untended Hampstead Heath.
There is nowhere in the world quite like London for entertainment. Nightclubs and bars are dotted around the city playing all the music you could imagine. The West End hosts some of the greatest theatre productions in the country and live music is available from little known up-and-comers as well as A-list, world-famous singers and bands.
