London is the capital city of England and is the largest city within the UK.

Any tourist will make sure this place is number one on their list of city breaks. There is an abundance of shops, museums , night-life and sight seeing to keep you occupied for weeks without leaving the centre.

Although, tourists landing at any of the city's airports will often stay and use public transport to sight see in the centre of the capital.

The main reason is that navigating your way around the centre by car is not recommended due to the high volume of traffic and people.

Drivers often collect their rental cars from outside the city boundaries or after their sightseeing trip may even collect from an airport location.
