Croydon Car Rental

Enterprise Car Rental Locations in Croydon

Croydon lies to the south of London's center and is a favorite shopping destination for many locals and tourists. Its 2020 regeneration goals have focused on the contemporary urbanity of the area, but travelers would be remiss to neglect the borough’s wealth of historical art treasures. No walking tour is complete unless you cover the same ground that The Beatles and The Who did in the roaring 60s. The town is rich in spirit, so expect an atmospheric trip that places you right in the center of one of London’s most iconic areas. Renting a car lets you zip around this fascinating region more conveniently. Begin your trip at the West Croydon Enterprise branch, stop off at our location in Beddington, or opt for our South Croyden location.

Attractions In Croydon

Croydon is the best example of the juxtaposition between the UK’s manufacturing and shopping eras, which won it The Guardian’s label of “Britain’s most interesting town.” Locals have been pushing for a city facelift for years, and the National Trust has, at last, begun to answer the call, giving so-called “ordinary” places a fresh sheen for future generations to enjoy. The Western corner of the borough will become London’s Third City, with its own town square. Ruskin Square is among London’s most outstanding developments, with two million square feet of stores, homes and leisure buildings.

When touring, a vehicle lends itself well to its alternative arts scene, which is at its most concentrated at the center of the city. At the southern edge of town, Croydon is at its most artistic, having paved the road to fame for musicians as diverse as Amy Winehouse and Adele. The Beatles once graced the stage at Fairfield Halls, which began refurbishment in 2016. Rise Gallery is a cultural hotspot, with a firecracker exhibition catalogue that changes each month. Every style from pop art to local grassroots genres is covered. The Museum at Croydon Clock Tower introduces you to the town’s history, starting in 1800 and working its way toward the present day.

Places To Visit Outside Croydon

The obvious first choices for destinations on the outskirts of town are London’s other major boroughs, where you’ll find St Paul’s Cathedral and Buckingham Palace. Horton Country Park and Hobbledown are crammed with small-town charm. Nature fans will love Surrey Hills’ peaceful pastures and scenic views. Cruise Kingston’s rivers and stroll through London’s largest royal park. If history gives you a thrill, Kingston has markets that are almost a thousand years old.

Airport Car Rental

The closest airport to Croydon is Gatwick, where you will find our branch located at the South Terminal, giving you quick access to the M23 motorway.

Parking And Traffic Information In Croydon

When you are out and about with the car, Croydon roads have systems in place to manage parking more conveniently. Mobile phone access lets you pay for your parking at major car parks, using your credit or debit card on your smartphone. In most cases, parking under 30 minutes is free, and disabled bays are provided for Blue Badge holders. Avoid traveling from West Croydon during morning peak hour traffic. The major highways could keep you in stasis for as long as two hours during rush hour, so when traveling, Croydon is best navigated using daily traffic reports.

Croydon is best explored through its subcultures, which express themselves via the arts. As an alternative city, it has a fascinating underbelly just waiting to be discovered. As the 2020 Croydon Vision goals for refurbishing the town are met, it will become a striking central hub for other famous destinations.
