Car trip London to London

Can you advise if this is "do-able" please. Will be in England for only about 10 days, for about 8 of those wish to hire a car and travel from London to Bath, Stonehenge, Wales, Manchester and return.

Can this be done? If so, is one way better than the other? Cheapest car hire firms?

Any help would be much appreciated.

1. Re: Car trip London to London

it can be done. Suggest though you rent a car from Heathrow Airport as you will then be straight on to the motorway to Bath, and not have to mess around trying to get out of Central London. Another advantage of airport renting is that they are open longer and better hours than car rental depots in Central London. You do not need a car at all in Central London.

And I'd suggest Stonehenge from Heathrow pick-up and then onto Bath rather than the other way round.

We have found www.alamo.co.uk good value for car rental, and they have a number of depots in London central, as well as at Heathrow.

In day tens you can comfortably cover the destinations you have mentioned, and travelling upto Manchester, visit Ludlow a beautiful historic town.

Should you be flying in directly from New Zealand, it may be wise to have a night rest before a long journey, Windsor maybe.
