Car & Van Rental in North London?
North London has an eclectic culture and is rich with all of the excitement that modern life has to offer. Wherever you find yourself in North London, you can always relax knowing that Enterprise Rent-A-Car is never too far away. On the northern fringes of the capital, you'll find that Enterprise has branches in Enfield and Waltham Abbey. North London is home to the famous Chapel Market in Islington, which is only a stone's throw away from the Business Design Centre in Upper Street where everything from trade shows to art exhibitions take place. Upper Street itself is an upbeat and trendy area with many busy top-end bars and restaurants offering a variety of cuisines. Tottenham Hotspur Football Club is only a 30-minute drive away from Islington but a nightmare to get to by public transport. Car hire is available just 15 minutes away from the Hotspurs' grounds with Enterprise having a branch in the affluent Palmers Green area. Offering direct access to the North Circular Road (A406), this is the main route from the area to and from Heathrow Airport. Other North London branches can be found in West Hampstead and Kingsbury, with Barking and Ilford branches ostensibly located in not-too-far-away East London. Ilford is only a 10-minute drive to Edmonton via the A406 or North Circular Road; Barking, although in Essex, borders Ilford and offers a direct and fast route into most north London areas via the same A406 road.
Our Vehicles for Hire in North London
Enterprise have vehicles for all occasions and financial requirements, starting from budget cars, right through to luxury saloons and commercial vehicles. Depending on your travel needs, a mini, economy or intermediate vehicle will hold up to four passengers, a large compact or standard - such as the Ford Focus - will seat five with luggage, but for a family trip, an SUV or people carrier is highly recommended. For those who have a need to move things rather than people, our range of commercial vehicles will almost certainly have something to suit. From small and medium vans up to Lutons with a tail lift, Enterprise Rent-A-Car can offer the answer to your needs.
Attractions in North London
Car hire in North London offers the opportunity to marvel at some of London's most loved attractions. Alexandra Palace, or the Ally Pally as it is known locally, was opened in 1873 and offers amazing views over London. A great location to sit down in the park with a coffee and a sandwich and gaze across the London skyline, the Victorian architecture is a pleasure to admire and takes pride of place within the area. Car hire is especially useful when visiting Alexandra Palace since there are no trains stations nearby and transport links can be hard to grasp for a visitor.
Emirates Stadium is the home of Arsenal Football club and located just behind Holloway Road. Open to the public, visitors can browse Arsenal memorabilia in the Arsenal Museum or a enjoy a premium tour led by a team legend. On the theme of football, you can also walk down the Players' Tunnel at Wembley Stadium and see the England team's changing rooms. You can even sit in the seat used by the England manager to see if it really does have an ejector switch! Hear sporting tales during the 75-minute tour and feel the huge atmosphere of a legendary stadium.
For those who fancy some calm and natural surroundings, plan a visit to Hampstead Heath. If you're feeling adventurous, do so on Christmas Day when the brave of heart traditionally take a dip in the freezing swimming ponds.
