London Stansted Airport Car Rental
London Stansted Airport was built in the middle of the Second World War by the American armed forces and played a very important role during the invasion of Normandy.
The airport remained under the American control also during the years after the end of the war until 1966, when it was ceded to the British authorities, becoming the third civil airport serving London.
Nowadays, many airlines work here, such as the British Airways, which guarantees connections to Florence and Ibiza.
London: points of interest
London is the symbol par excellence of the cosmopolitism in Europe and this is only one of the many reasons why it is one of the most popular cities among tourists from all over the world. In the British capital city there are really many points of interest which make it one of the world capitals of culture.
Once landed in London Stansted Airport and picked your rental car up here, booked on RentalUp before departure, you can soon start your vacation in one of the most famous cities in the world.
The first stage must absolutely be Trafalgar Square: this is the most famous square in the city and is considered its beating heart. Still in this zone, you must visit the National Gallery, one of the most important museums in the world. Speaking about the most interesting places in London, we cannot miss to mention the Palace of Westminster, where the British Parliament meets.
Exploiting the freedom guaranteed by the car rental service from London Stansted Airport, you can decide in any moment to get to the London Eye, which is precisely in proximity to the Parliament. The highestobservation wheel in Europe is another of the symbols of the city that deserve to be fully experienced.
The same goes for Buckingham Palace, the official residence of the British royal family in London, a part of which is opened to the public throughout the year. For those who would like to take a break, perhaps after having wandered a lot throughout London, we suggest to go to Hyde Park, probably the most important public park in London, seat of many cultural events, such as rock concerts.
London: art and culture
London is one of the cities with the highest cultural level in the world thanks to the presence of many interesting places from the artistic, historical and cultural points of view.
It is enough to think, for example, of the already mentioned National Gallery or of the Natural History Museum, where about 70 million fossils are exhibited. Just this will allow you to understand the great importance of this museum, located inside a building built in Neo-Romanic style, reachable in any moment thanks to the car rental service, exploitable from the airport of London.
For all those who love original museums, we cannot miss to suggest the Victoria and Albert Museum, it too is easily reachable thanks to the car rental service from London Airport. This museum is a charming mix of objects coming from all over the world: it is enough to think, for example, of the fact that there is a floor entirely dedicated to the Islamic art, while in another area there are the cartons that, they say, Raffaello used while he was painting the Sistine Chapel.
Lastly, when we speak about what London has to offer the tourists who decide to visit it from a cultural point of view, we must mention the British Museum, true world-wide flagship of the city, still today considered as one of the most important museums in the world.
