London’s a fun and culturally diverse city, so there’s a huge variety of events, festivals, street performances, plays, and concerts to enjoy. And don’t forget the food! Visit local British restaurants and pubs, but be sure you go to Brixton for African and Caribbean food, the East End for Bangladeshi cuisine, Golders Green for Jewish food, Finsbury Park for Greek and Turkish cuisine, and basically any London area for awesome Asian food!

London Gatwick Airport was the first airport in the world to receive a direct train link to it. London’s a great destination, but why not get a longer term car rental and explore even more? Many beautiful national parks like South Downs, Brecon Beacons, New Forest, and Dartmoor are easy to reach by car, and you can also head to northern England or even Normandy and Bretagne in nearby France.
