The west London district of Hammersmith is a vibrant and interesting area, with plenty for the visitor to see and do. With a hire car, visitors can avoid public transport and it is more straightforward to get to many attractions. Within the vicinity are historic houses and country parks, such as Fulham Palace, Chiswick House and Gardens, and Gunnersbury Park. Just a stone’s throw away over the river, in Barnes, is the WWT London Wetland Centre, a great place for bird and wildlife spotting in the city, while a little further away is the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew. Many visitors are surprised at how many green spaces there are in London, and South West London certainly has many of them, including the spectacular expanse of Richmond Park and historic Bushy Park. Within Bushy Park, Hampton Court Palace is well worth a visit, both for the opulent interior and the beautiful gardens. Other great districts to explore in the area include Richmond, with its riverside bars and restaurants, Twickenham and Kingston, while the lively areas of Clapham, Putney and Battersea are also within easy reach. The Enterprise Rent-A-Car branch is conveniently located close to the Hammersmith London Underground, along King Street (the A315). This leads into Chiswick High Road, which connects with the M4, so it is easy to get out of the city.
Many Enterprise customers in London are looking for a compact vehicle and these offer excellent value for money in the city. There’s also a stylish range of Premium vehicles for those looking for something with a little more space and comfort, as well as vans for customers needing a vehicle for moving house or picking up furniture. Booking online and paying in advance will give the best savings.
Small and medium vans are ideal for driving around London, and offering up to around six square metres in space, are just the thing for many customers needing to move house or transport bulky items. The cost of both is especially competitive, with small vans being the most affordable vehicles in the range and medium vans costing around the price of a standard car.

While small cars and vans are among the most competitive vehicles to hire in the range and are well suited to navigating London roads, there are also people carriers and SUVs available – great for those looking for extra passenger capacity or a more robust vehicle to tackle the surrounding countryside.
Car parks in Hammersmith include Kings Mall Car Park just north of King Street, and U.G.C. Car Park just south of King Street. Once you get a little out of the city, on-street parking becomes more available, often without restrictions – for example, around Bushy Park. Hammersmith connects easily with the M4 via Chiswick, while the A4 connects with the South Circular, London’s orbital road. It’s generally best to avoid peak hour periods, though Hammersmith roads can be busy at any time of the day.
