Let National take the hassle out of car hire in London, with our convenient and professional service.
Britain's capital is a vast and sprawling metropolis, filled with a variety of sights, sounds and flavours to explore. Hiring a car will let you explore at your own pace, without missing anything, and avoiding the crush of the overcrowded underground network.
London has a huge range of things for the visitor to see, from museums and art galleries to gig venues and pubs, but there are certain sights which nobody should miss. At the city's heart lies the Houses of Parliament, housed in the stunningly gothic Westminster Palace on the banks of the Thames. Here the nation's elected representatives come together to debate and decide the future of the United Kingdom.
Visitors can take a tour of the inside of the Houses of Parliament and even watch a debate from the public gallery, but many prefer to wander across Westminster Bridge, from where you get an impressive view of the riverside facade and the iconic clock tower of Big Ben.
On the other side of the river you can find the Millenium Wheel, a great way to get above the city's rooftops and see its ramshackle mixture of architecture, where Victorian splendour neighbours modern minimalism.
Further east you come across the South Bank, London's cultural centre and home to the Royal Festival Hall, the National Theatre and the British Film Industry. As well as ticketed shows and events the area plays host to many street performers, and the free Tate Modern art gallery is just a short drive away.
The Queen's official residence Buckingham Palace is a must for anybody trying to capture a portrait of something quintessentially British. Its gated grandeur is guarded by the famous busby-wearing soldiers, who can regularly be seen performing the world famous changing of the guard ceremony.
