Just a few miles from Manchester and with an excellent road network, Bolton is a great place to base yourself for getting around the north west.

Get the most out of your visit to Britain's friendliest city by booking car hire. Bolton will not disappoint with its sights and attractions, which you can explore at your own pace...

Begin with Bolton's thriving city centre. There are plenty of restaurants to enjoy as well as many high street shops for some retail therapy. 

There is a historical air to the city and the heritage is exhibited in the local museums, such as Bolton Steam Museum and Bolton Museum, Aquarium and Archive. You can even trace your family history at the History Centre.

For sports fans, the Reebok Stadium is home to Bolton Wanderers Football Club. Tickets can be bought online or from the stadium if you fancy a day on the terraces.

Fun for all the family, Bolton has a cinema and bowling lanes, and you can also make your way to Go Ape to experience a tree top adventure. Not far from the city centre is the traditional Victorian park, Queens Park. With picturesque lakes, ornamental gardens and open spaces, the park is a great day out in the summer.

For those looking for entertainment, Bolton has a great nightlife, with fantastic bars and clubs. Try your luck at the city's casino or bingo, or if you're looking for a more cultured evening, head to the Victoria Hall to see performances by choirs, bands and orchestras.

Collect your hire car from a convenient downtown location around Bolton. To find the best deal on car rental in Bolton, use our search tool and book in advance.
