Things to do in Southwark

Southwark is best known for attractions like Borough Market, the Shard and the Globe Theatre, but there’s much more to the borough too. If you’re planning on raiding Borough Market, or even just over shop, you can find a nearby Zipcar and drive your haul home. Alternatively, if you fancy a trip to one of the many cultural highlights in the borough, like the Southwark Playhouse or an exhibition at the Design Museum, a short term car rental offers an easy way to drive there and back.

Serious shoppers enjoy Surrey Quays Shopping Centre and we have plenty of cars in the area so you can carry all your shopping home easily. If you’re more into sports, there are a several leisure centres to choose from, including Surrey Docks where you can try your hand at kayaking and sailing. If you’re bringing bags of equipment with you, Zipcar offers a simple mode of transport.
