Amazing Day Trips from your London Holiday Rental

A London holiday rental can be especially valuable because of its close proximity to so many great places to visit. While it is surely possible to spend days or weeks exploring the city of London alone, there are also many locations outside the city which are worth visiting.

Oxford

The trip from the London rentals to the city of Oxford takes about an hour and a half. There are several walking tours and bus tours that offer visitors a great overview of the city in a short amount of time. Many of the tours begin at the Oxford Tourist Information Centre. If you don't want to join a tour, you can get more information and maps for places you want to visit on your own. If you're interested in visiting the famous Oxford College, be aware that it is only open to visitors during specific hours that vary by the location chosen.

Cambridge

The trip from London to Cambridge is approximately an hour and a half as well. Fitzwilliam Museum is one of the most popular attractions in Cambridge. Filled with artifacts from Greece, Egypt, Rome, Asisa and Europe, the collection has something for everyone. Other popular locations include Cambridge University, the Bridge of Sigh, and King's College Chapel. The Cambridge Tourist Information Center is a great place to get information about local attractions or to arrange a tour.

Canterbury

The trip from Canterbury to London is also about an hour and a half. There are several popular sites here, including the Canterbury Cathedral, Museum of Canterbury and The Canterbury Tales. The Canterbury Cathedral has a magnificent exterior and beautiful interior features. The Museum of Canterbury takes guests on a tour of the history of the city, a great find for children and adults alike. The Canterbury Tales attraction, as well as the Canterbury and Leeds Castle, are an excellent choice for those who love the history and the myth of Canterbury.

Paris

If you want to see a bit of Europe outside of the United Kingdom, devote a day to Paris. It is quite a long trip but is well worth the time and effort. There is such a selection of things to see it may be difficult to limit yourself to one day. Some of the most popular attractions include the Eiffel Tower, Cathedral of Notre-Dame, Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre and the Sorbonne. While you will likely only be able to choose one or two of the historic locations in Paris, a day is more than enough time to enjoy the flavor of France.
