London is the beating heart of the United Kingdom and contains countless monuments, parks, and communities all with their own unique appeal and culture. 

Visit the beautiful Buckingham Palace or Houses of Parliament or explore the outdoor food markets of Camden and Borough where you can get some of the tastiest and cheapest food in London!

London has some great hidden gems, make sure to check out Covent Garden's Top Secret Comedy Club where some of the best comedians in the world play secret shows for unsuspecting guests.

For one of the best views in the city make sure to visit the free to enter London sky gardens which allows you access to an indoor rooftop tropical garden with views of the entire London skyline.

Getting to London

RV rental in London is easy as it can be reached using the UK's freeway network with every single Freeway or M road connecting to London’s main ring road, the M25 orbital. This road circles London, so no matter which borough you need to reach, this road will be your main access point. 

There are six major airports which are London City, London Gatwick, London Heathrow, London Luton, London Stansted and London Southend. These airports have connections from all over the world and average flight times from Europe are between 1 and 3 hours, while transatlantic flights take between 6 and 8 hours for a journey. 

London has train connections from all over the UK and Europe and its main train stations include Saint Pancreas and Kings Cross as well as Waterloo and Charing Cross. A train trip from London to Edinburgh will take around 5 hours, while a train journey on the Euro tunnel from Paris to London will take around 3 hours. The UK train network is extensive and services run regularly with minimum delays and good facilities throughout. 

Parking in London

Parking in your London RV rental can be costly with many parking zones costing between £5 and £8 per hour and very little space dedicated to free parking, however, there are exceptions and usually there are no restrictions in the evening between 6.30 pm and 8.30 am while on Saturday some areas allow 2 hours free parking and free parking all day Sunday. However, this does vary on the area, so make sure to check local signage before leaving your RV.

Parking on the outskirts of London does prove to be cheaper with much more reasonable long term parking rates and NCP car parks tend to be the cheapest parking option in London. 

The City of London is home to seven off-street car parks operated by the National Car Parking association and prices vary across locations, but the cheapest options are the NCP car parks at Covent Garden and Kings Cross and if you use the ParkPass app it will cost around £30 for 24 hours.

Parking outside London and then getting the underground tube network into the center is always the cheaper option, and you can park at either the NCPs Richmond or Docklands car parks, which will cost between £8 and £14 for a 24-hour stay.
