Driving in and around London

Buckingham Palace

London City Airport is just under 10 miles east of Central London and is connected to the rest of the city by the A112 and A1020. To reach Canary Wharf, it’s just a four-mile drive and, further into the heart of the city, you’ll find Covent Garden, the Tower of London and many other attractions within easy reach. 

Most major cities and towns in the UK are connected by A-roads, often dual carriageways with a 70mph speed limit, and motorways. The M25 motorway, which is almost 117 miles long, encircles Greater London and provides access to Watford and other destinations north of the capital. The M25 also takes you towards the M1, a major motorway which runs all the way to Leeds and other cities in the north of England.

From London City Airport it’s also possible to travel to the south coast of England, with seaside towns such as Eastbourne and Brighton just a couple of hours away. After joining the M25 southbound, you can reach Eastbourne via the A267 and Brighton via the A23. 

If you’re planning to drive in London City Center, you should be aware of the Congestion Charge, from which rental vehicles are not exempt. London City Airport is outside the charge zone, but it does cover many roads around tourist attractions in the capital. The charge applies from 0700 to 1800 Monday to Friday and can be paid in advance. Our location team will be happy to answer any questions you may have about it.

London is a busy city and it can sometimes be difficult to find parking in the center, with restrictions in place from Monday to Saturday. However, there are a number of large parking lots in operation throughout the city, where you can reserve spaces online in advance. Remember that, unlike in the U.S. and most of mainland Europe, you’ll be driving on the left-hand side of the road in the UK, passing on the right.

A quick guide to London

Big Ben

The UK’s biggest city offers a seemingly endless array of attractions, from culture and nightlife to parks, palaces and restaurants. There’s so much to do that it’s impossible to fit it all into one visit but, if you head into the center, you’ll find some of the major highlights close together. Part of the joy of London is exploring it at your own pace and uncovering those places that you’ll remember forever.

A snapshot of London

Many first-time visitors to London head straight for the London Eye, the slow-turning wheel that towers over the Thames and is one of the city’s most instantly recognizable sights. First built to mark the Millennium, it’s become an iconic part of the skyline and you can enjoy panoramic views of the city from one of its glass-walled pods.

Just over the water from the Eye, via Westminster Bridge, is where you’ll find Westminster Abbey, the grand cathedral that has played host to many royal weddings and coronations in the UK since 1066. It’s a fully-functioning church which is open to visitors throughout the year, with places on its guided tours available to reserve online. Taking a tour gives you the chance to visit the nave, cloister and even Poets’ Corner, where some of the world’s most famous literary names are buried, including Charles Dickens and TS Eliot.

West End culture

Visit London’s West End and you’ll be spoilt for choice if you’re looking for a cultural fix. Like New York’s Broadway, this part of the city is home to dozens of world-class theaters where, on any given day, you’ll find musicals, comedies and classic plays being performed.

There are also many cinemas located in and around Leicester Square, where most of London’s red-carpet movie premieres are held.

This area is also well known for its shopping, most famously along Oxford Street, Regent Street and Bond Street. Here you’ll find huge flagship stores for brands including Selfridges and the famous Hamleys toy store.

For something a little different head to Seven Dials near Covent Garden, where you’ll find many smaller boutiques, independent restaurants and traditional English pubs.

Back to nature

A visit to London also gives you the chance to explore some of its eight Royal Parks. By far the largest of these is Richmond Park, to the south-west of the city.

Here you’ll find ancient trees and many rare species of plants, along with deer herds and tea rooms where you can sit back and enjoy the scenery. You can also bask in spectacular views of St Paul’s Cathedral from the viewing point at King Henry’s Mound.

On the other side of the Thames lies Regent’s Park, home to beautiful tree-lined pathways and a charming boating lake. It also boasts some excellent sports facilities, including tennis courts and cricket pitches.

Take a walk up Primrose Hill for some stunning views of the London skyline, or explore its wetland area to spot some rare species of wild bird. Renting a car at London City Airport makes it possible to explore all this and more on your visit to the England’s vibrant and ever-changing capital.
