4 Simple Steps to Zipcar Freedom

Things to do

You can’t deny the freedom that having access to a car gives you, but Zipcar proves you don’t have to own one to reap those benefits. Our car sharing club means you get all the positives of ownership without the negatives. This means you’ll have peace of mind whether you’re picking up the kids from school or discovering somewhere new to visit.

Being fairly central it’s no surprise Hammersmith and Fulham has a lot to offer. For a start there is Shepherd’s Bush Market which runs every day except Sundays. You can park up here and fill your car with bargains from the myriad of stalls selling fresh food, housewares, clothes and sari fabrics.

If you enjoy music then there are two great venues you could drive to, the Hammersmith Apollo and Shepherd’s Bush Empire which both play host to some of the biggest names in the music business. Be sure to check out their listings to see if there is something on that’s to your taste. Of course if there’s not anything you like there are plenty of smaller venues in the borough too. Be sure to investigate Brook’s Blues Bar and Under the Bridge for something a bit more leftfield.

You might be looking for some history and culture. If so then Fulham Palace is the perfect place to go. With ample parking nearby it’s a convenient place to visit. Along with a museum and beautiful garden there’s an ever-changing list of events and exhibitions meaning you should be able to find something for everyone to enjoy.

If you want to escape the city for day, the Chilterns is just a drive away to the east. This area of outstanding natural beauty is perfect for a refreshing country walk and if you’re lucky you might even spot a red kite. In the south of the Chilterns is Greys Court, a Tudor manor house with a series of tranquil walled gardens nestled among medieval ruins.

For families, the Roald Dahl museum further north makes for a fun yet educational day out, complete with an interactive story centre designed for children, as well as chance to see where he wrote his famous novels.

Use Zipcar’s car club to enjoy the opportunity owning a car or van gives you, while eschewing all the hassle and bother.
