Discover London and surroundings by car
When you drive away from Heathrow Airport, you’ll discover a host of must-see attractions nearby. From the London Motor Museum in Hayes to the World Rugby Museum in Twickenham, you won’t be disappointed with Thorpe Park also nestled between the towns of Chertsey and Staines-upon-Thames. Be sure to pass by places of great historic interest too with Windsor Castle and Hampton Court Palace being just a short drive away.
Of course, with access to four wheels, you can also head straight for the city centre which is within close proximity to the airport. Here, you’ll find a medley of world-famous attractions from Big Ben and the Palace of Westminster to Trafalgar Square and the West End. London Bridge and the London Eye are not to be missed and if you want to test your nerves, head to London’s South Bank for a dark and fearsome trip to the London Dungeon.
The Royal Parks of London are also a sight to behold with Hyde Park being just a stone’s throw from Marble Arch and the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street. Regent’s Park is home to the ZSL London Zoo and then there’s St. James’s Park where you can feed the ducks as part of a delightful stroll. To complete your regal experience, don’t miss Buckingham Palace where you can witness the renowned Changing of the Guard ceremony.
Should you wish to escape the hustle and bustle of the capital, the county of Kent is reachable in less than two hours with the quaint university city of Oxford just a short drive away to the west of London.
Driving in London
Driving from Heathrow Airport to nearby attractions is relatively easy thanks to the well-maintained and well-signposted motorway network which surrounds this busy travel hub. That said, roads such as the M1 and M25 are extremely busy and fast-paced with road works often causing delays. You must drive on the left hand side of the road in the UK, so take extra care if you are travelling from a country where this rule is reversed.
Traffic within the centre of London can be extremely busy and while there are many secure places to leave your car, you may prefer to park at one of the tube stations on the outskirts of the city instead. If you leave your car on the street, be sure to read the local signage to see how much you need to pay.
