Sometimes you just need a car in Lambeth

Just south of the river is the borough of Lambeth. It’s full of things to do so it’s always worth a drive around. It has its fair share of landmarks, parks, and culture. There’s also plenty of places to spend the day shopping with excellent museums on offer too. Whether it’s getting groceries or soaking up some culture, the cheap car sharing in Lambeth we offer is the best way to do it. To get around the borough or further afield, you might be thinking about short term car hire. We let you rent cars and vans by the hour, which means we offer ultimate flexibility. You won’t have to worry about shelling out for a day rate when you only need a vehicle for a few hours. It’s the best way to get things done without making you bankrupt.

Things to do in Lambeth

There’s so much to do in Lambeth that you could show up any day of the year and there will be something to pique your interest. Two amazing venues play a big role in this – the Royal Festival Hall and Brixton Academy. Between them they put on a huge variety of shows all year round meaning no matter what your tastes are, at some point there will be something that caters for you. Parking is accessible in both of these places, so you could be treating yourself to anything from a philosophy talk to a gig from the day’s most popular bands.

On the other hand, you might be on the lookout for some green space to relax in and enjoy a bit of nature. A drive down to Brockwell Park would be a great start with its ornamental garden, ponds and expansive areas of grass. There’s also Streatham Common which is a designated nature reserve. A perfect place for a family picnic, the common is also used as an open air theatre in the summer.

Getting out of town with a Zipcar

If you’re looking to bring back some bargains using our car club, there is a weekly car boot sale in Brixton every Sunday. If you’re after some more traditional retail therapy, your best bet is to head to Streatham. It boasts the biggest shopping area in Lambeth and a fantastic ice rink nearby where you can safely leave the kids, before finishing off the day with a decent family meal in a local restaurant.

Of course you could be looking to get outside the city and there’s plenty of places to visit south of Lambeth. A short 50 minute drive south will bring you to Biggin Hill where you can imbibe some country air. With Lumberdine Wood and Titsey Park nearby, it’s the perfect place to head for a walk with the family. Further south across the M25 is Chartwell where you’ll find another two places perfect for a getaway walk: Squerryes Park and Crockhamhill Common.
