The city is encircled by an inner ring road, North and South Circular roads and the outer orbital M25. A number of radial routes intersect these main roadways but there really is not direct way into the center of the city. As the city suffers from significant traffic a congestion charge is collected in designated zones of central London. If you plan to drive your Sixt rental vehicle in London's congestion zone you must register the vehicle within 24 hours at an appropriate pay station and pay for each day it will be driven in the zone. We recommend registering an paying on the Transport for London website as it a rather quick and easy.
London is a truly remarkable city, with many of the capital's most popular landmarks scattered throughout the central districts. Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace are a few of the popular sights found in the area known as Westminster. The neighboring City of London is another popular area, home to landmarks such as St. Paul's Cathedral and the Gherkin skyscraper. In addition to its many historical landmarks, London is also one known for its many natural spaces. Hyde Park is easily the most famous public park in London. This massive park is comprised of some 350 acres. The park is separated by a lake known as the Serpentine, which was created in 1730. In addition to Hyde Park, other well-known natural areas include Hampstead Heath and Kensington Gardens. If you are looking for a more lively side of life in the capital, you may wish to consider a visit to areas such as Camden or Soho. Camden Market is found within the borough of Camden, along with the London Zoo and Camden Arts Centre. Soho, on the other hand, is a popular destination for entertainment venues and nightclubs. Exploring the rich diversity of the many boroughs throughout the city is one of the most popular activities for those who venture to London.
All Saints' Church Tudeley
This small church is home to a big wonder, namely, stained glass windows all made by Marc Chagall. In fact it is the only church in the world which can make this claim. The artist was commissioned just to design just the east window to honor the untimely death of Sarah d'Avigdor-Goldsmid, but once he saw the space he decided to design them all. Seeing the play of color and light of these great works is a truly moving experience and well-worth the drive.
