3) Royal Leamington Spa

Boasting Georgian townhouses and royal gardens, Leamington is famous for its 19th century Regency architecture, broad boulevards, and natural springs. Queen Victoria herself bestowed this town with the title of ‘Royal Leamington Spa’ in 1838.

Based in the heart of the Midlands, the Royal Leamington Spa is a very well-connected region. Only 1-hour from Birmingham, and 2 to 3 hours from all major cities in the UK – including London. This town is the ideal getaway for those looking to indulge in fine dining, and discover unique, original art in a beautiful location that has easy city access.

Take a trip to the Royal Leamington Spa in a vehicle fit for a king, our range of luxury Coupe’s will add a touch of glamour your relaxing weekend away this winter.

4) Bristol

Bristol is steeped in history that dates back thousands of years. This forward-thinking modern city is known for its thriving art culture and prosperous music scene. The region is a melting pot of architecture – you’ll want to be equipped with a camera when you visit the iconic suspension bridge and the gothic masterpiece that is the Bristol Cathedral.

Full of life, this riverfront metropolis is a cultural hub for global arts, entertainment, and heritage. Visit the 19th-century harbour, whose warehouses have been converted into chic restaurants, bars, and the famous Arnolfini Art Gallery – Bristol’s international centre for contemporary art exhibitions, poetry and live musical and spoken word performances.

Hire an eco-friendly electric car from our luxury fleet, for your road-trip to Bristol from one of our London collection points.

5) London

January is the perfect time to visit London. The streets are quieter after Christmas, and, although the festive season is over, the city remains illuminated with lights celebrating a variety of winter festivals.

Hire an incredibly efficient and stylish hybrid to whip around the city in, then head over to the world-famous Oxford Street and battle your January blues with some bargain-fuelled retail therapy. 

Or, if you prefer something a little more contemporary and cosmopolitan, why not indulge in a sophisticated executive car and head over to Canary Wharf for fine dining and inspired entertainment at the winter light festival, an artistic display of lights in the capitals vibrant business quarter.
