4 Simple Steps to Zipcar Freedom

4 Simple Steps to Zipcar Freedom

Things to do

Having a car gives you the freedom to travel without waiting for buses, trains or planes. It’s one of the most convenient ways to travel, but with that convenience comes a pretty heavy cost. Buying a car, running it, and paying for insurance means many can’t justify buying a car. That’s why Zipcar offers them on a flexible basis that people can actually afford.

Greenwich itself has plenty of locations to visit by car. Greenwich Park is one of the largest green spaces in the whole of London, so it’s always worth a trip. You can take a stroll or just pitch up somewhere for some food and a couple of drinks. That’s along with the other parks dotted around Greenwich you could also choose from.

The borough also has its fair share of history too. The Greenwich Meridian, where we get Greenwich Mean Time from, is located here, while it’s home to the Cutty Sark, the Royal Naval College and the Greenwich Royal Observatory. So if you’re wanting to soak up some truly British history, you can go wrong by taking a trip to any of these landmarks.

If you want to have an adventure beyond the M25, then Greenwich is a good starting place. A great place to visit is Southend-on-Sea in Essex. Here you can have a traditional British seaside getaway. Lounge about on the beach, enjoy some arcades, eat amazing food, and take a wander on the pier. If you’ve got a bit bored of London it’s the perfect place so set your sites on.
