London Motorhome Rental Considerations.

Our suppliers of Motorhomes in London are based well outside the city, in Hoddeston, Broxbourne, Hertfordshire( mid way between Luton and Stansted airports) in the north of London, and Leigh-on-Sea in Essex, which is to the east of London.

Both of these depots can be reached by train from Central London, and we can arrange for collection of your party at the local train station.

These two camper van depots in London service the London area - they will collect you and transfer you to their depot for a fee which will be included in your quoted rates. It is possible to get a cheaper quote for your motorhome rental by arranging transport to the depot yourself. To get this cheaper quote, choose either Hoddeston or Leigh-on-Sea as your pickup and dropoff location.

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is a constitutional monarchy in northern Europe.

The Union comprises four 'home nations': England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. The UK today is a diverse patchwork of native and immigrant cultures, possessing a fascinating history and dynamic modern culture, both of which remain hugely influential in the wider world. Although Britannia no longer rules the waves, the UK is still a popular destination for many travellers.

Regional specialities

It should be pointed out that whilst these are foods famous for being found primarily in Britain, the British diet actually consists largely of imports, and the menu of even the cheapest pub will include international dishes such as pasta, pizza, or Chinese foods.

Black Pudding - a sausage made of congealed pig's blood and rusks cooked in an intestine. Available in all over the UK but a speciality of the north of England and the Black Country.
Cornish Pasty - beef and vegetables baked in a folded pastry case. Originally a speciality of Cornwall, but now available throughout the UK.
Deep Fried Mars Bar - Orignally from Stonehaven, Kincardineshire, but now available in other parts of Scotland.
Haggis - a mixture of sheep innards and oatmeal boiled in a sheep's stomach. Available widely, but a speciality of Scotland.
Lancashire Hotpot - a hearty vegetable and meat stew. A speciality of Lancashire, but available throughout the UK.
Laverbread - a puree made from seaweed, rolled in oatmeal, lightly fried and generally served with bacon rashers, though can be prepared as a vegetarian dish. Available in Swansea and West Wales.
Oatcakes - this speciality of Stoke-on-Trent, North Staffordshire and Derbyshire is a large, floppy, oat-based pancake, eaten hot with a savoury filling. Not to be confused with the Scottish oatcake, a sort of biscuit.
Potato Bread - a mixture of potatoes, salt, butter and flour. A speciality of Northern Ireland, which when added to a Full English Breakfast (alongside Soda Bread) forms an 'Ulster Fry. This is also known as Potato Cakes in England.
Yorkshire Pudding - a savoury side dish made from unsweetened batter. Squat and round in shape - often served with a roast dinner (consisting of roast potatoes, roast beef and yorkshire puddings). Originally a speciality of Yorkshire, but a popular side-dish throughout the UK.

Drink

Britons tend to drink alcohol mainly in the evening, during the day they are sustained by tea and coffee.

British real ales, championed by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), are amongst the best in the world - though people used to colder, blander, fizzier beers may find that the taste needs to be acquired. The phrase "free house" is usually the main indicator for people looking for a good choice of beer, because this indicates that the pub was not owned by a particular brewery and served whatever beer its landlord though would appeal to their customers.


Beer in pubs is served in pint and half-pint measures, or in bottles. Simply ordering a beer on tap will be interpreted as a request for a pint, eg 'A London Pride, please'. Alternatively 'half a London Pride, please' will get you a half-pint
