See more of Great Britain from your England rental car
You may be surprised to discover just how much history and culture is contained on the island of Great Britain. England, in particular, offers travelers modern cities, quaint villages, and natural landscapes and seeps with centuries of history. If you need an England rental car, Thrifty locations are available in 18 cities.
The ultra-fashionable city of London offers top tourists sites such as Buckingham Palace, The Tower of London, Parliament and Westminster, and Covent Garden. While heavily connected by The Tube and taxis, car rental in England may not be necessary if you’re prepared to walk. However, it would be a shame to end your English holiday within the city limits. Outside the capitol you’ll find a different side of England and plenty of friendly locals to mingle with.
Along the popular southern coast of England, you’ll find several seaside destinations, the most famous of which is Brighton. Located only one and a half hours from London by rental car, this vacation town attracts city dwellers looking to escape to warmer temperatures, outdoor activities, and a bit of swimming in the English Channel. Cruise your England car rental from the White Cliffs of Dover to Cornwall and pass smaller vacation resort towns that dot the coastline.
Heading north through the Midlands, there’s plenty of destinations to include on your route. Small towns packed with history, such as; Oxford and Cambridge, or the luxurious Georgian town of Bath are easy trips to make from London.
The North West was once the industrial center of England, booming with shipbuilding and textile factories. Today, cities like Liverpool and Manchester have been revitalized and include cool city centers, excellent sports venues, clubs and museums. Check out the world famous Manchester United Football Club at Old Trafford or experience the swinging sixties on the Magical Mystery Bus Tour which tours visitors around significant sites in the history of The Beatles.
Lastly, in Yorkshire, the city of York will transport you to an age past. Parts of this city are closed to motor traffic, but parking for your rental car is available outside the city walls. Once you’re in the heart of York, walk passed York Minister, known as the most impressive Anglican cathedral standing, and The Shambles, still as crowded and busy as it has been for centuries.
No matter the route, there is no better way to see the rocky coast, rolling hills, and delightful cities than on four wheels. Pick up your Thrifty Car Rental at one of 18 locations.
