London Mini Guide

A trip to London is well worth it and booking a car rental well in advance is a must. We have numerous car hire points from which you can collect your car in London as well as  London Heathrow  and Gatwick Airport and others. .If you are driving  from Gatwick then you join the M23 at junction 9A, though this will be well signposted. Luton can be reached along the M1 motorway and is to the north of London city. London Stansted can be reached by driving along the M11 and it is to the north east of London City.

If you collect your hire car from London Heathrow airport the drive is just under one hour by car.  London Gatwick Airport is approx. 50km from central London and about a 80 minute car journey.   We are confident you will find any style of rental car that you require when booking car hire in London with Rhinocarhire.

High-speed Eurostar trains operate from St Pancras International station in London and provide links with Lille and Paris in France and Brussels in Belgium.  .  Good motorway connections include the M25 which is a circular road going around London but note it can be very congested.

England's capital was once ridiculed for its cuisine but is now so thrillingly multicultural that you can find French food to rival the best in Paris, better curry than is cooked in Bangalore and everything else from Argentinian to Zimbabwean.
