Hertz in London Gatwick Airport

On the doorstep of one of the world’s most vibrant cities, Gatwick is the second largest airport in the UK, transporting millions of passengers every year across the globe. Situated just south of London, landing here could be the start of anything from an important business trip to an exciting family holiday.

Once you land at Gatwick, you’re a mere 30-mile drive from the center of London and all the attractions and history it has to offer. It’s also not far from here to the south coast of England, with its popular seaside towns including Brighton and Eastbourne. Alternatively, you could head westwards to the Surrey Hills and South Downs National Park.

Whatever the reason for your visit, Hertz is on hand to help you pick the perfect rental car. We have two pick-up locations at the North and South terminals, ensuring quick and easy collection so you can get on with the rest of your trip.

Driving in and around Gatwick

Gatwick Big Ben

Gatwick is well-connected for onward travel almost anywhere in the UK. Situated just off the M23 in Surrey, you can follow the highway northwards to join the A3 or M25, both of which will take you into London. The M25 is the busiest freeway in the UK, stretching almost 190 km around the capital, so you may encounter heavy traffic at peak times.

If you’re planning to drive into London, you should be aware that a congestion charge is payable in some areas within the city. This daily tariff covers most areas in the center between 7am and 6pm from Monday to Friday. Rental cars are not exempt, but you can pay the charge quickly and easily online. Our local team will be happy to advise you about that.

It’s also worth planning ahead if you wish to park in central London. Many streets have parking restrictions in place, although you’ll also find many car lots located around the city and some on-street metered parking.

As well as its easy connections to London, Gatwick also offers excellent road links to many areas in the south east of England. You can join the M23 southbound which joins the A23 to Brighton, or the A22 which takes you in the direction of Eastbourne or Hastings. If you’re driving north of London, you can circumnavigate the city via the M25 to join the M1, which will lead you to areas including Watford, St Albans, Milton Keynes and Northampton.

A quick guide to Gatwick

Gatwick Buckingham Palace

Whether you’re heading into the ‘The Big Smoke’ or down to the coast, Gatwick is a great place to begin your journey. There’s so much on offer in this part of the country, with exciting cities and pretty towns sitting right next to the famed countryside of the green and pleasant English landscape.

Bright lights, big city

The UK capital is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, and it’s easy to see why. From an eclectic food scene to world-class museums and galleries, London really does have it all.

There’s so much to see that you could never fit it all into a single visit, but a great starting point is the South Bank of the Thames. Here, you can take a spin on the iconic London Eye and enjoy views of landmarks from Big Ben to Westminster Abbey and Tower Bridge.

Not far from the South Bank you’ll find the Tate Modern and Shakespeare’s Globe, two cultural giants that are well worth a visit. Cross the Thames and you’ll reach the Tower of London, where you can learn about the city’s most famous fortress, see the Crown Jewels and the tower’s famed ravens. Legend has it that if they ever leave, both the tower and kingdom will fall.

From here, hop on the nearest ‘tube’ – the city’s subway – to Covent Garden, with its markets, fashion stores and boutiques. Covent Garden is also home to the Royal Opera House, hosting world famous performers from the world of music and ballet.

For culture lovers, a trip to South Kensington is also a must – here you’ll find the Victoria and Albert Museum, Natural History Museum, Science Museum and much more all in one wonderful stretch.

On the beach

London might be the biggest city near Gatwick, but it’s not the only great attraction you can access with a rental car. Just a 30-mile drive away you’ll find Brighton, a creative and fun seaside resort with a thriving arts scene.

Brighton offers all you’d expect from a traditional British seaside town with its promenade, long sandy beach and scenic pier, but there’s much more to discover besides the seafront. If you wander around the city you’re sure to spot some of its famous street art, including the ‘Music Mural’ adorning the Prince Albert Pub.

For the adventurous, there’s a range of activities including power boat riding at the beach or, if being a spectator sounds more appealing, you can drive a short distance from the waterfront to the racecourse, which hosts dozens of events between April and October.

If all that wasn’t enough, visitors in May might be lucky enough to experience Brighton Fringe, the largest arts festival in England.

Harmonious Hampshire

If you’re planning to experience some of south-east England’s famous scenery, it’s an easy drive from Gatwick via the M23 and A23 to the South Downs National Park.

With its western tip in the heart of Winchester and its eastern edge stretching down to Eastbourne, this landscape includes the Seven Sisters cliffs and the iconic White Cliffs of Dover next to the English Channel.

Its lively market towns and charming villages are filled with cozy hotels, B&Bs and self-catering cottages. You can really make the most of this peaceful part of the world by car, before heading on to wherever you want to go.
