Expedia car hire in City of Westminster comes with No Hidden Fees
Why rent a car in Westminster?
Westminster is in the heart of London, and many of the UK capital's top attractions can be found there, including Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and Tate Britain. You can also enjoy walks along the Thames, and with a Westminster hire car you'll be within easy reach of the many things to see and do around London.
How to get to and around Westminster?
The best way to get to Westminster is to fly into London Heathrow Airport, but there are several other London airports to choose from, including Gatwick and Stansted. London takes about 35 minutes to reach from Heathrow in a Westminster rental car.
Some of the hotspots within a short drive of Westminster include Soho, 12 minutes away, the home of great nightlife, trendy bars and art galleries, and Kensington, a 15-minute drive with your Westminster hire car. Kensington is home to some of London's top museums.
For something a little quirkier, a trip to enjoy the huge markets and eateries of Camden Town, 20 minutes from Westminster by car, is well worth making. Camden also has several great venues for live music, including the Camden Assembly (formerly Barfly) and the Underworld. Pimlico, less than five minutes' drive in a Westminster rental car, offers opportunities to enjoy fine dining or a stroll around the area to enjoy the stunning architecture.
Hiring a car in London city centre
The best place to pick up a hire car is Heathrow Airport, but you can also find a Westminster car rental at the other local airports and around London. Westminster is within London's congestion charge zone, which means you'll have to pay a fee to drive your Westminster hire car there. You can find out more about this on the Transport for London website.
London is within easy reach of lots of interesting cities around the south of England. Canterbury is an historic city just an hour and a half from London with a Westminster rental car. You can really feel the history in the air, and visitors can enjoy the Canterbury Tales Museum, which celebrates Chaucer's classic book, or take in the atmosphere with a stroll through the medieval streets or a guided boat tour on the river Stour.
